Kunze, Edith A. (Scholtz) (16 DEC 1933 - 7 OCT 2018)

Edith A. (Scholtz) Kunze, 84, passed away Sunday, Oct. 7, 2018, at her home in Plover, with family at her side.

Edith was born Dec. 16, 1933, in Neillsville. At the young age of 13, she began her career as a part-time “soda jerk” at the Kerns Rexall Pharmacy in Neillsville.

Along with her husband, Bob, they started Kunze Building Supplies in Neillsville. They also purchased the Fullerton Lumberyard building in Neillsville, and established Kunze Decorating Center.

Edith loved spending time with her family, volunteering for their kids’ groups (Cub Scouts, Campfire Girls), and entertaining family and friends at their home and cabins. A pillar of strength to everyone around her, Edith was always selfless, generous and caring.
After retiring, Edith and Bob split their time between summers in Wisconsin, and winters in Florida.

She is survived by, and lovingly remembered by, her husband – Bob, of 66 years; three sons – Kim (Debbie) Kunze, Brad (Georgene) Kunze and Chuck Kunze (Lauren, life partner); two daughters – Cindy (Mark) Roberts and Cherie (Larry) Stuhr; one sister, Joyce (William) Hill; 11 grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by one grandchild; two brothers and two sisters.
