Eunice Mae Schultz (nee) Sampo, passed away July 28, 2022, the day after her 81st birthday due to congestive heart failure at St. Vincent Hospital in Green Bay, WI.
She was born July 27, 1941, to the late Lawrence Joseph and Vivian Marcella Sampo nee Denis in Green Bay, WI. Eunice married Anthony George Schultz on June 3, 1960, at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Champion, WI. Because the wedding rings were lost prior to the wedding high school class rings were used as their wedding bands. Their priest asked them to come into his office in the afternoon to repronounce their vows using the newly located wedding bands which they did so they joked about getting married twice in the same day. They celebrated 61 years as a team.
Eunice will be sadly missed by her husband, Tony; their three living children, Michelle A. (Peggy) Arado, Erich Anthony (Carol) Schultz, and Karen E. Schultz-Hess; grandchildren, Ethan Edward Anthony Schultz, Paige Elizabeth Schultz, Zachary David (Teresa) Gillaume, Kaitlyn Mae Gillaume and significant other (Evan) and Chloe Marlaina Hess; four great grandchildren, Audrey and Daphne Gillaume, Easton David and Brooks Anthony Basten.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by a daughter, Marlaina Mae Gillaume; two brothers, Laverne Bernard and Charles Anthony Sampo and other relatives.
