Kathleen Ann Johnson Schultz, age 59, passed away from this earthly life on Tuesday, June 18, 2019, at her home.

Kathy was born March 21, 1960, in Fredericktown, Mo. She was raised with three sisters on a small farm in Marquand, Mo. Kathy joined the Unites Stated Army after high school where she met her husband Norman Schultz, Jr., while stationed in Germany. They were married and had two sons. They moved to Laurens and started a family nursery and landscaping business in 2014. Kathy was an intricate part of the bookkeeping and day-to-day functions of the nursery.

She was a member of Chestnut Ridge Baptist Church. She was most joyful around her two young grandchildren and took much pride in her family.

Surviving are her two children: Norman Schultz, III, his wife Irene and their son Patrick; and Brandon Schultz, his wife Bryson and daughter Callie; and special family member Malaki and her stepdaughter, Joanna Schmidt of Oklahoma. She is survived by three sisters: Carla Honingfort and husband Edward; Paula Miller and husband Calvin; and Susan Quiros; and many nieces and nephews.

Kathy was predeceased by her husband Norman Schultz, Jr., and her parents, Carl and Irma Johnson.
