Eldora "Ellie" L. Schultz

December 10, 1929 — May 21, 2022

Eldora “Ellie” Schultz (nee Main) of Waukesha passed away when the Lord called on Saturday, May 21, 2022 at age 92. She was born in Milwaukee on December 10, 1929 the daughter of the late George and Marion Main. In 1948 she married Melvin “Bud” Schultz who passed away in 2003. Ellie worked at Holiday Inn, RTE (Cooper), and Farmers Insurance as a receptionist. She received many accolades for her positive attitude, upbeat personality, dedication to her work, her warm smile and creating high morale in the workplace. She loved life, laughter and a good joke. She was proud of her Irish heritage, celebrating at Hannon’s every year. Her big dream came true in 1994 when she flew to Ireland to kiss the Blarney Stone, sing in an Irish pub, learn about the local people while enjoying a pint of Guinness and tour the Waterford Crystal factory. Ellie was also thrilled to visit England, Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace and to sail down the Thames. She loved being with her family above all, for together they enjoyed music, sports, baseball, basketball, football, playing cards and celebrating the 4th of July. Christmas was her favorite holiday with her children and their families and her decorated house was like a Christmas in wonderland. Ellie was creative in crafts, like singing, movies, casino trips, was a member of the Red Hat Club and in 2008 was nominated Queen Mum. She was a devoted and loving mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister and friend.
