Mabel E. Schulte

Mabel E. Schulte, 96, of Shawano, formerly of Montana, passed away peacefully on Thursday, March 28, 2019, at The Cottages in Shawano.

Mabel was born July 31, 1922, in Augusta, Montana, a daughter of John and Virginia (Brown) Manix. As a Montanan, Mabel came from strong stock. Her younger years were spent growing up on a ranch on the Dearborn, attending school in the summer months. This region always held a special place in Mabel’s heart and memories. At the age of 10, her family moved to the Town of Augusta. She regaled stories of playing sports in high school, especially basketball where her teams were the great tournament teams. Living in a small town provided Mabel the confidence to try many activities. Alas, she lived a very happy childhood.

Merlyn Orlando Hanson 1933-2019

Merlyn took his first breath in Heaven on March 20, 2019, surrounded by his loving family.

Born in a farmhouse in Dorchester, Wisconsin, on December 2, 1933, Merlyn was the son of Norwegian cheesemaker. As the youngest of six, his father passed away when he was only 4 years old. He was raised by his mother, and a combination of older siblings, aunts and uncles. Memories of Ontanogan, Michigan, Glidden and the Lund family farm, southeast of Shawano and Riverside School filled his childhood with adventure and practical education. He often shared that he was thankful to have grown up when he did.

After moving to Mendota, Illinois, as a young teen, and then to San Jose, Illinois, he was employed by the Hanson Dairy, his brother’s cheese factory. It was there that he met and married (Donnabel) Donna Houser, the love of his life, and together they forged a loving bond that would last for 67 years.
