Margaret Schultze and I worked together for quite a few years. We had so many good times. She was an amazing nurse and always was so very supportive of everyone she came in contact with. My life was certainly made better by knowing her. She was a good friend to me. Thoughts and prayers for her family.

I have such fond memories of her. She was an awesome nurse and supervisor on the night shift. We always knew if we needed help on Peds, she had our back. She will always be remembered.

I worked 11pm to 7am shift at MWH for 9 1/2 years and she was my nursing supervisor during that time. She had a way of lifting our spirits when the nights were hard, she would pitch in and help whenever necessary and she kept us laughing about her stories of her grandchildrens antics. I always got a kick out of her toe ring.
My heartfelt sympathy to all of her family,; I know this will be a deep, sad loss for you but I feel confident she has joined many of her old comrades in Heaven.

I started at MWH in a unit secretary..eventually going to nursing school. I switched to night shift to be able to work and go to school. I always enjoyed working with her, she was the sweetest, kindest person, and a wonderful supervisor. Great memories of night shift and remembering her love of frogs! Rest in peace sweet lady....

Dear Mr. Schultz and family you have my deepest sympathy. I worked with Margaret at MWH before she retired. Remember her saying she was going to work at Walmart as a greeter when she did retire. . We worked many a night together. Always a steady shoulder and willing ear when we had something going on. Wished i could have seen her one more time to tell her how honored i am to have known her . Know you will miss her terribly. Remember the good times and that infectious laugh. Cant be there Saturday. But will be thinking of you all
