Margaret E. Schuett

October 5, 1915 — February 12, 2021

Margaret Elizabeth Baker Schuett, a lifelong member of Gibsonburg, Ohio, died on February 12, 2021 at Good Shepherd Home in Fostoria. She left behind a legacy of love, family, friends, and a commitment to God and community.

Her generosity, devotion, and humor through all aspects of her life got her through an amazing 105 years. As a loving wife, mother, grandmother, great and great-great grandmother, Margaret never forgot a birthday of her 45 descendants.

Margaret was born in Prairie Depot (now Wayne, Ohio) on October 5, 1915, and graduated from Gibsonburg High School in 1933. She married Tony Schuett on February 22, 1934. Her main job in life was being a homemaker and caregiver to the family. She worked as a substitute secretary at Gibsonburg Schools, while Tony was the clerk of the Board of Education. She was an active member of Zion Lutheran Church, where she crocheted, sewed, and knitted for church charity events. Margaret also played golf, which she started at 49, and played for 30 years. At 71, she jumped right in to learning to use the internet and e-mail. She also taught herself to make unique, personalized greeting cards with this new technology, which she lovingly sent to family members.

She is preceded in death by her loving husband of 45 years, Raymond “Tony”; an infant son, Jimmy; son, James; parents, Bert and Julia (Esslinger) Baker; brothers, John and William Baker; daughter-in-law, Jeanine Schuett; grandson-in-law, Don Goodwin; grandson-in-law, Richard Hamm; and great-grandson, Nicholas Hoffman.

Margaret is lovingly remembered by her two sons, Robert (Carolyn) Schuett of Newnan, GA and Jack Schuett of Mt. Juliet, TN; daughter-in-law, Nanette Schuett of Fostoria; daughter-in-law, Sharon Schuett; and three devoted nieces. All of her children’s children enjoyed Margaret’s presence as a grandmother who kept the family together. Tammy Goodwin, Timothy (DeeAnn) Schuett, Lori Hamm, Robert (Donna) Schuett, and Kristofor (Suzanne) Schuett spent many nights in their grandparent’s home. Although too tired to have the next generation spend the night, she doted on her great-grandchildren and welcomed them with open arms. They all loved to hear stories of her childhood and the Great Depression she lived through. Melissa Feltner; Robert, Timothy, and Daniel Goodwin; Alisha and Michael Schuett; Julia Decker; Laura Murphy; Nathaniel Hoffman; Katrina Heminger; Alex, Ryan, and Joshua Schuett; Hannah, Harrison, and Avielle Schuett are grateful for the time they shared with their great-grandmother. Margaret also cherished her 19 great-great grandchildren as well.
