Florence Schulte

Florence M. Schulte, 90, Batesville, died Wednesday, Sept. 25, 2013, at St. Andrews Health Campus.

Born Feb. 14, 1923, in Jersey City, N.J., she was the daughter of Elizabeth (McFadden) and William Barry. She married Clarence “Shot” Schulte Jan. 19, 1946, at St. Joseph Church, Jersey City, and he preceded her in death Jan. 6, 1984. She was a homemaker and a member of St. Louis Catholic Church.

Florence loved horses and liked going to the horse races. A gray horse in the field was a sure bet in her mind, and there’s a running joke in the family about “Grandma going to see a man about a horse” that they will share with you. Her family laughed and teased about her affection for her daily soap operas and the supermarket tabloid papers she called “rag mags.” An avid reader, her tastes ranged from romance novels to John Grisham novels. She also liked a whiskey and water now and again.

According to her family, Mom was an exceptional cook and baker. They especially liked her hash and her apple sauce cake. They also discussed how her faith was important to her and how she loved Christmas and the holiday season. Her children and grandchildren were her pride and joy.

Florence is survived by her daughter and sons-in-law Betty and Don Newton, Warsaw, Ky., Mary Lou and Paul Hubbard, Batesville, Ruth and Jack Johnson, Batesville, and Patti and Gary Peters, Lebanon, Ohio; sister Irene Nugent, Charlotte, N. C.; brother Jim Barry, Elizabethtown, N.J.; 11 grandchildren; 23 great-grandchildren; and three great-great-grandchildren.

She was also preceded in death by her parents, her sister Margaret Barry and brother William Barry.

Visitation is Friday, Sept. 27, from 4-7 p.m. at Weigel Funeral Home. Funeral services are 10 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 28, at St. Louis Catholic Church with the Rev. John Geis officiating. Burial will follow in the church cemetery.

The family requests memorials to Hospice of Margaret Mary Health or St. Andrews Activity Fund.
