Mrs. Claire M. Schulze, 1922-2017


Mrs. Claire M. Schulze, 95, of McMinnville, Oregon, formerly of Fullerton and Laguna Beach. 


Claire was born in Los Angeles to Paul and Margaret Sloggett. She graduated from UCLA and worked as a teacher. 


In January of 1946, she married Jim Schulze. They lived in San Gabriel, then moved to Fullerton in 1957, where she was involved with the Assistance League. 


Claire loved music, playing bridge, reading, and spending time with friends and family. Vacations in Laguna Beach resulted in their moving to Laguna before retiring to Oregon.


Claire is survived by her husband of 71 years, James H. Schulze; children, Jeff (Lauri) Schulze of Placentia, John Schulze of Oregon and Jennifer (Roger) Buck of Washington; grandchildren, Leslie Murray, Julie, David, and Michael Schulze; and several great-grandchildren.


Mom was a "real mom," devoted completely to her family and friends. She will be missed.


No services are planned. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Guide Dogs for the Blind in Boring, Oregon.

Jeff, John and Jennifer so sorry to hear about the passing of your Mother. She and your Dad were always involved in making our Sunny Hills neighborhood a wonderful place to have been raised. It is great that you have been blessed wth both your loving parents for so many years. They have seen most of their generation pass on as well as many of they kids they helped grow-up. Please give your Dad my condolences and thank him for all the fun times he and Claire provided us "kids". Sorry this was sent late as I was out of the country the last few weeks.
Fondly, John Ashman

I’m sorry for your loss, Jeff, John and Jennifer. In some ways, losing our mothers is the most difficult of all losses to bear. - Paul Saevig, ’67.
