Marilyn and Bill recently moved to Pittsburgh to be closer to their much-loved family.  Marilyn devoted her life to supporting her husband and raising her three children.  They were her passion and delight.  She was thrilled to be the grandmother of nine wonderful grandchildren.  Numerous fun-filled Christmas and Thanksgiving holiday family gatherings were shared at the family home in Los Angeles.  The family numbered 17 including the out of town siblings, spouses, children and grandchildren who all gathered in their Los Angeles home for one big holiday sleepover.   Family game time was always going from Monopoly, gin rummy, rummy 500 and dominos just to name a few.  Many summer vacations were spent at Grandma and Granddad's home in Los Angeles where the grandchildren played with joy and laughter in the pool and had many memorable trips to the beautiful sunny Southern California beaches. Marilyn generously gave of her time and energy through many programs her children were involved in as well as philanthropic organizations.  She served as President of Marlborough School Parents Association.  She was also on the Board of Directors of ARCS (Achievement Rewards for College Scientists).   Marilyn always sought active roles in her children’s lives such as Room Mom and Girl Scout leader, all while providing tireless support for her husband in his career.  Marilyn also loved gardening and cooking.  In Los Angeles, she cared for her beautiful rose garden with passion.  Any visiting friend or family member was greeted with a fresh cut rose in their room. Marilyn was the beloved wife of 59 years to William D. Schulte; loving mother of Lynn Eckert (Chris) of Fairfield, CT, Jim Schulte (Pam) of Salt Lake City, UT and Sarah Woodings (Rob) of Pittsburgh, PA; cherished grandmother of Ryan Eckert, Cooper Eckert, Campbell Eckert, Kate Schulte, Will Schulte, Olivia Schulte, Robby Woodings, Chris Woodings and Jenny Woodings; sister of Kay Simpson (Robert) of St. Joseph, Missouri and Mason McIntire (Judy) of Mound City, Missouri; sister-in-law of Ann McIntire (late Tom) of Overland Park, Kansas. There will be a private memorial at a later date in Oregon, Missouri.  Memorial donations in memory of Marilyn can be made to ARCS (Achievement Rewards for College Scientists) Foundation Inc., Los Angeles Founder Chapter, 24520 Hawthorne Blvd., Ste. 113, Torrance, CA 90505 or online at
