South Milwaukee lost a dedicated community servant last week, one who also left his mark on his employer, his church and the South Milwaukee Lions.
Blaine Schultz passed away at the age of 94 on Thursday, Thanksgiving Day.
Here is his obituary. From it:
Blaine was an active involved citizen, serving on the South Milwaukee Redevelopment Committee, SM Street Beautification Committee, and the Mayor’s Blue Ribbon Committee and more. He was an election proctor for 20+ years. A member of St. John Lutheran Church in Cudahy since 1959, he served there as President of the congregation, on the Board of Elders, Head of Education Building committee, the evangelism committee, taught Bible study and was a lay liturgist. He also dedicated 49 years of active membership to the South Milwaukee Lions Club where he was awarded the Birch-Strum Fellowship, Presidents Award, named a Knight of Sight, Eye Bank transport driver and was twice awarded the Lions Club’s highest honor, the Melvin Jones Award.
Services are Thursday at St. John Evangelical Lutheran Church in Cudahy, 4850 S. Lake Drive. Please join me in offering prayers for the entire Schultz family.
