MENNO SCHULZ August 9, 1930 - May 15, 2018 It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Menno Schulz at the age of 87, after a brief battle with cancer. Menno grew up on a farm near Wiedenfeld, Manitoba. He attended school in a one room schoolhouse in Wiedenfeld, then one year in M.C.I and graduated from highschool at Miller Collegiate in Altona. He taught in various rural school districts, attended teacher's college and then met a fine girl in Brunkild, Manitoba, Henrietta Wallman, and were married in 1956. They began their life together in Lowe Farm, moved to Haskett and then to Winkler, where they started their family. In 1965, the family moved to Eskimo Point, then to Churchill, and finally settled in Winnipeg in 1969. He retired from teaching in 1985. Menno's interests were conducting choirs, singing, golfing, and he liked attending the horse racing at Assiniboine Downs. Menno made it important that the family attended church, mainly Burrows Bethel and later Bethel Mennonite. Menno was the father of Evan (Arlie) and Rennie (Cindy) and six grandchildren. He is survived by his sisters, Linda Neufeld and Olga Teichroeb; brothers, Waldo (Helen) and Victor (Rosella); and sister-in-laws, Susan, Helen, and Mary. He was predeceased by his loving and faithful wife Henrietta (nee Wallman); his parents, Bishop David and Katherine Schulz; brothers, Leonard, Ben, Albert and Harold. The family wishes to thank the wonderful staff at Bethel Place, Oakview Place, and finally Pembina Place for their care and perseverance. A small gathering / viewing will be held on Friday, May 18, 2018 at 2:00 p.m. at Bethel Mennonite Church, 465 Stafford Street, Winnipeg, MB. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Mennonite Central Committee. Arrangements Entrusted to: Morris Funeral Home 204-746-2451

Condolences & Memories (3 entries)

  • I was a new teacher in Fort Churchill in 1966. Menno and Henrietta came south from Eskimo Point and he became vice-principal of the Duke of Edinburgh School, where I taught Kindergarten. We socialized a bit during the time they were in the north, and after they left, I still met Menno at Summer School, where we were both always upgrading our teaching qualifications. Menno was a gentle man who was fair, was interested in his staff, and was always willing to support us when we had requests or ideas for improvements in the school. He was so proud of his Evan and Rennie as they were growing up. Hollie Andrew - Posted by: Hollie Andrew (former friend, colleague) on: May 20, 2018

  • Mr. Schultz was my teacher at Ralph Maybank School in Fort Garry. He took an interest in each one of his students - always encouraging us to do our best and most importantly, trust that he would do his best to help us do OUR best. - Posted by: Lia Baksina (Former student) on: May 17, 2018
