Loretta D Schomisch
Milwaukee (formerly Chilton), WI

Loretta Dorothy Schomisch (nee Bullock), 103 years of age, resident of Milwaukee Catholic Home, Milwaukee, since January 2010, died of natural causes on July 5, 2022. Born September 20, 1918, in Milwaukee, WI, to Edward H. and Stella (Torner) Bullock.

Loretta lived her early childhood in Milwaukee, WI, on N. Pulaski Street, across the street from the famous Wolski’s Tavern.  She attended St. Hedwig’s Catholic Elementary School.  Her family then moved to Whitefish Bay where she was a “Blue Duke”, graduating from Whitefish Bay High School in 1936.

She was awarded a scholarship to the University of Wisconsin Whitewater where she graduated in 1940 with a B.S. in Business.  Her first teaching assignment was at Princeton High School as a Business Teacher which extended for three years.  Then she taught at Green Bay Vocational School for one year.  Then came two years at Hilbert High School before the majority of her career (25 years) at Chilton High School, retiring in 1981 at the age of 63. 

While teaching High School in Hilbert, WI Loretta met Bernard (Barney) Schomisch in 1945.  They fell in love and married June 21, 1947, taking up residence in Chilton, WI. 

Loretta was an active member St. Augustine’s Catholic Church (which she outlived).  She then became an active member of Good Shephard Catholic Church in Chilton.  She was also a member of Christian Women; the Daughters of Isabella; St. Augustine’s Parish Council, and The Catholic School Board and Inter-Parish School Board.  She also was Group Leader with the Girl Scouts and Campfire Girls, and served with the Cancer Society, all in Chilton.  

One of the many highlights of Loretta’s life was being an Advisor and Host Parent with the AFS (American Field Service).  She and her husband, along with daughter Jacki, were host family to Yukiko Narita from Tokyo, Japan, during Jacki’s senior year 1970/1971.

In January 2010 Loretta came full circle returning to her birth city of Milwaukee, where she began a fulfilling and enriching life at The Milwaukee Catholic Home located only minutes from her birthplace.  Loretta became a “star” at MCH both with residents and staff.  In her years there in Independent Living she discovered she loved all the activities at MCH, especially drawing and painting.  She also was an eager participant in programs at MCH involving elementary students interacting with residents.  

Loretta was a huge fan of the Green Bay Packers and was, of course, a shareholder.  

Loretta is survived by her three children:  William Schomisch (Laura Kwaterski Schomisch); Barbara Dunlap (Richard Dunlap); Jacquelyn (Jacki) (Schomisch) Morgan; grandchildren: William Morgan; Erin Robbins (Akira O’Connor); Rachel Robbins; Carrie Robbins (Matt Sterbenz); Michael Schomisch (Kristine Crummel Schomisch); Marisa Schomisch (Brandon Marsh); Matthew Schomisch (Julie Joseph); great grandchildren, Joseph Morgan, Leonardo (Leo) Marsh, Kas and Mei O’Connor; and “adopted” AFS “daughter” Yukiko Narita Kamiya (Atsushi Kamiya).  Loretta was preceded in death by a special angel in Heaven, Emily Schomisch.  She is also preceded by EVERYONE, except those listed above at the time of this printing.  

A Funeral Service will be held at 12:00 pm on Tuesday, July 12, 2022, at the Wieting Family Funeral Home (411 West Main Street, Chilton, WI 53014) (920) 849-4941 (www.wietingfuneralhome.com) Visitation will begin at 11:00 am until 12:00 pm, with a committal service to follow the funeral at St. Augustine Catholic Cemetery, Chilton.

My dear Aunt always made sure at her house with family gatherings us kids had paper and crayons to create things with. She was so caring of us all. And she'd check back with us to see our creations. I will miss her Waldorf salad with the colored marshmallows! And something I can't forget is when I asked her why she repeated everything twice. Her answer to me was I'm a teacher and I'm use to repeating everything twice. That made sense I will miss you but I will Love You Forever. Thank you for being my Aunt. ????????????

Mrs Schomish was a "no nonsense" teacher, so willing to help in any way. She took teaching her students very seriously and helped me in my high school years. What a beautiful lady who is now in her Heavenly home being rewarded for her many good deeds, thru Jesus Christ. My deepest condolences to her son, Bill, and all her children and relatives.

She was the BEST!! I have great memories that include her from my years at Chilton High (class of 1961)

DIANE ROSE SCHMAHL (student from Chilton High School) - July 8, 2022


Mrs. Schomisch was the most influential person in my life. I attended her Bookkeeping class in my Senior year at CHS. It was at a time when I had very little direction in what I was going to do in my life. I was constantly in trouble at school, etc. She provided me with direction and purpose and I took what I learned in her Bookkeeping class and her advice and decided to go to college and obtain an Accounting degree which later allowed me to have a wonderful career. I remembered her often over time as the Teacher that set me on a track to be successful in life. She was a wonderful Lady and a fantastic and a Teacher. I will never forget her! My condolences to the Family.

So sorry to hear of her passing. She lived a long life. One of my favorite teachers. She always had great school spirit. No chewing gum in her class.(lol). She was one in a million. Rest in Peace Mrs. Schomisch.
