Barbara Schullo, age 87, a resident of Rice Lake, and formerly of Spooner, died in Rice Lake at Brentwood Memory Care on Thursday, February 20, 2020, with family by her side.
Barbara was born on March 2, 1932, in Spooner, Wisconsin, to parents Robert and Edna (Butterfield) Goebel. She attended the Spooner Area Schools, graduating from high school in 1950. On September 18, 1954, Barbara was united in marriage to Raymond Schullo in Spooner. While in Spooner, Barbara worked at Harry Dahl’s Furniture and Funeral Home, and later, after moving to Rice Lake, she worked at Rice Lake Weighing Systems for 10 years where she made friends and was known for her hard work and dedication. Barbara was a homebody, loved to bake, and deeply loved her family. Barbara also was generous with her time and talents. She enjoyed knitting and knitted baby hats for the Rice Lake Hospital, prayer shawls for her church, and baked coffee cakes for church events and her friends. When Barbara wasn’t doing any of the above, she loved to play games - 500, Dominoes, Skip-Bo; find deals at garage sales and thrift stores; and do jigsaw puzzles. Barbara enjoyed following the Brewers, Packers, Badgers, and local Rice Lake and Spooner sporting teams.
