Thelma Jane Schultz

July 7, 1930December 27, 2020

Thelma Jane Schultz took her ‘hike’ (as she would’ve said) on December 27th, 2020 in Wheatridge, CO at the age of 90 years. She was born in Oklahoma on July 7th, 1930 to Lilian McKnight and Ernest Walcher in Oklahoma. When Thelma was young she moved to Red Dirt, CO (now known as Silt) with her mother and siblings. In 1948 she graduated from Garfield County High School. She married Herman Peter Schultz Jr and they had two sons, Bob and Roy. She was employed for many years as a Postal Service Worker

She is survived by her 4 grandchildren, Missy, Greg, Bobbi and Kayla, and her 10 great grandchildren. She is also survived by her great grandchildren: Daphne, Zeda, Xander, Blake, Ellie, Aria, Lane, Everly, Tegan, Taeva.

Thelma was strong, witty and never afraid to speak her mind. We will all miss her sarcastic remarks.

A graveside service will be held at the Franktown Cemetery at 1 PM on January 17th. A reception with light refreshments will follow at the Franktown Grange.

I am going to miss this lady! She was my gambling buddy and we always had so much fun when we went up the hill! She had to be the strongest women I know and always had words of advice for me. I will miss her greatly. RIP Aunt Thelma, until we meet again!
Love Donna Jo
