Monica Schukantz

Monica Mary (Rudie) Schukantz passed away on Wednesday May 5th at her home in Sheboygan at the age of 99. In fulfillment of her wishes, she was able to remain at home with the care of her loving son Tim and the much appreciated help of Compassus Hospice.

Monica was a kind, gentle, patient and loving person who had a respect for and passion to preserve life which was reflected in her profession as a nurse. She also loved nature and animals and never neglected a creature in distress. She loved to sing and had a twinkle in her eye and a very contagious laugh.

Born on August 19,1921, Monica was the only child of the late Clara (Rank) Rudie and Arthur Rudie. She grew up in Two Rivers and completed training to become a Registered Nurse at the Holy Family Hospital in Manitowoc. She used these skills to serve in WW2 from 1943 to 1945 where she earned the title of Army First Lieutenant after completing her service, part of which was spent in Devizes England. She married Walter H. Schukantz on June 30th, 1947 and moved to Sheboygan where they raised their five children.
