Obituary for Virginia L. Schultz

PEORIA—Virginia L. Schultz, 81, of Peoria, passed away at 11:30 pm on Friday, August 30, 2019.

Born April 12, 1938 in Wenona, Illinois, a daughter of Robert and Iola (Dickey) King, Virginia married James “Jim” E. Schultz on March 10, 1956 in Bloomington. He preceded her in death on December 15, 2011 in Peoria.

Surviving are one daughter, Becky Bayless of Peoria; one son Brian (Myriam) Schultz of New Mexico; four grandchildren, Brett (Ashley) Schultz of Indiana, Blake Schultz of Indiana, Robert Schultz of New Mexico, Jahany (Charles) Carter of Kansas; four great-grandchildren, Charles, Caleb, Bentley, and Hudson; two sisters, Karen Moore of Illinois and Judith Hoerr of Arizona.

Virginia offered genealogical expertise to the County Clerk’s office at Peoria County Courthouse in a paid and volunteer capacity for 22 years, retiring in 2005. She also served at the first President of the Peoria County Genealogical Society from 1973-1974, holding various board positions in subsequent years. She initiated three Peoria County cemetery projects: listing everyone buried in Peoria County, tracing the final location of the charter members of the Peoria Grand Army of the Republic, and locating the graves of Civil War veterans. She received awards for her efforts from the Peoria County Genealogical Society and Illinois State Genealogical Society.
