Obituary

Obituary for Joan Louise Schultz (Stechmesser)

Joan Louise Stechmesser Schultz was born on December 29, 1939, in Manitowoc, Wisconsin to Herbert Lester Stechmesser and Josephine Meta Marie Behnke and passed into eternity on October 23, 2019 in Wheat Ridge, Colorado.

Joan is preceded in death by her husband of 53 years, Myron Robert Schultz.

Joan graduated from Metropolitan State University, summa cum laude, on May 17, 1992. She was listed as an outstanding scholar in “Who's Who in Colleges and Universities – 1992.”

After many years working as a stay-at-home mom to her 7 children, she worked for the State of Colorado in Personnel for 5 years as a Program Assistant in the field of Human Resources and Employee Benefits.

In addition to her children, Eric, Craig, Stephen, Kristen, Andrew, Peter, and Joshua, Joan is also survived by her children-in-laws, Pamela, Rhoda, Elizabeth, and Tricia Schultz. Joan has 17 grandchildren: Jessica, Amanda, Craig, Jr., Levi, Zachary, Claire, Steve, Lexie, Nathan, Ethan, Rachael, Jacob, Noah, Madison, Isabella, Caleb, Cambria, and 4 great-grandchildren: Elsy Rose, Craig Robert III, Milo August and Ivy Lynn.

Joan is also survived by her sister, Gwen Lawrenz, brother, Keith Stechmesser (Cindy), in-law sister, Marylyn Sandberg (Larry) and in-law brothers, Roger Schultz, Carter Schultz (Mary) and many nieces and nephews.

Joan’s Celebration of Life service will be held on Tuesday, November 26th at 10:00 a.m. at Faith Bible Chapel’s Family Worship Center, 6250 Wright St., Arvada, CO 80004, followed by a luncheon in the Atrium. Flowers may be sent to 6250 Wright St., Arvada, CO 80004.

Joan finished well her course here on earth. Her life verse was Isaiah 61:1-3.

“The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the suffering and afflicted. He has sent me to comfort the broken-hearted, to announce liberty to captives and to open the eyes of the blind. He has sent me to tell those who mourn that the time of God's favor to them has come, and the day of His wrath to their enemies. To all who mourn in Israel, He will give: Beauty for Ashes; Joy instead of mourning; Praise instead of heaviness; for God has planted them like strong and graceful oaks for His own glory.”

As I read Joan's life verse in Is. 61:1-3, I am struck by how faithfully and fully she remained true to her calling in so many lives. She IS a great woman of God, a Mighty Warrior who fought the good fight and remained faithful to the end. I'll see you soon, Joan, either when Jesus comes for the rest of us or before - it matters not to me. Thank you for living out the love of the Father to me and training me up in the faith.
