Thank you so very much for all your love and support. You were tough as nails, hysterically funny, and one of the kindest people I have ever met. You played an incredibly important role in my school years, and I learned a great deal from you. My deepest condolences to your friends and family.

I will miss your glares, stares, smacks, and mostly your radical candor.... and oh my, the bologna salad sandwiches! I truly would not have survived my teenage / early adult years without you... for that I am eternally grateful! You raised two amazing sons, and hundreds, if not thousands, of kids are better people today because of your caring, loving, and teaching nature. I hope wherever your soul rests, they have a large coffee pot! I love you Mom, you'll always be in my heart!

We will miss you, Daunes, and that enormous smile of yours! You always had such exuberance — and you shared it with everyone. I’m thankful that you were at our wedding in DC in 2000 and I will cherish those memories forever. Peace to your family. Love, Carol Malinowski-Peenstra and Family, Unity, MD

God Bless Mrs. Schultz and praying her Family finds peace during this loss and sadness. When I think of my high school years, Mrs Schultz was present for my athletic successes and always supporting my disappointments . We had many great talks (giving life advice ) and laughs on our bus rides to both Tennis Matches and Gymnastic Meets. She brought so much joy and love to people around. I am thankful I get to hold onto all those wonderful memories from and with her. Rest In Peace

I am so sorry for your loss of such a sweet, caring person. Many prayers and healing thoughts. I have many fond memories of Mrs. Shultz. My grandma Maggie Malinowski was very good friends with Mrs. Schultz. They bowled in a bowling league together for years. I also had the pleasure of having her as my 9th grade health teacher. You will be missed Mrs. Schultz.
