Mardene Schulke went to be with her Lord and Savior on July 28, 2021. Mardene was born on November 2, 1942 in Macon Country, Missouri to Olin and Celia Baldwin. At an early age, she moved with her family to the farming community of Vinton, Iowa where she remained until graduating from Dysart High School.

After high school, Mardene worked in and around the Vinton area. In 1970, she moved to Tucson, Arizona. It was there that she met and married Gary Schulke. Their marriage would be blessed with two children, Drew and Tara.

Mardene and her family moved from Tucson to Phoenix, Arizona. Over the next twenty years she worked in the elementary school system. Following her retirement, she and her husband divided their time between Flagstaff and Anthem, Arizona.

Mardene is survived by her husband, Gary, her son, Drew (Sarah) Schulke, her daughter, Tara (David) Tessmer, her sister, Joan (Don) Anders, her brother, Edwin (Beverly) Baldwin, her sister, Patricia (Larry) Davis and five grandchildren: Lauren, Micah, Gretchen, Lorelei and Annika. She was preceded in death by her parents, Olin and Celia Baldwin, her sister Faye (Bill) Cummings, and her sister, Nola (Alvin) Lindhal.

Mardene will be remembered as a loving daughter, sister, wife, mother, oma and friend. She was a woman of faith, who touched many lives with her friendship, kindness, grateful heart and positive support. She will be missed and will remain forever in our hearts.

Sheryl Dawson August 22, 2021, 6:38 pm I will miss Marty very much. While I only knew her for a few years, she made me feel as though we had been life-long friends. Indeed, she was like a sister in her loving care, deep and genuine interest in the issues in which I was passionate, and mutual love for our heavenly Father and Lord. I will treasure the times we shared together and look forward to seeing her again in heaven. To her family, my heart aches for your great loss and pray the Lord comforts you as you adjust to life without your precious wife, mother, sister and grandmother. With love in Christ.
