Details for Ethel Mae Burrow
January 27, 1927-February 3, 2018
Formerly of Orfordville, WI
Ethel Mae (Schulze) Burrow, age 91, passed away peacefully on February 3, 2018, in St. George, Utah. She was born on January 27, 1927 in Porter Township, Wisconsin to Robert and Viola Schulze. She enjoyed dancing at a local dance hall, Waverly Beach, in Beloit, where she met Ronald Burrow. They married on March 8, 1947 in Orfordville, WI. Ethel was a great cook, and kept her home and lawn immaculate. If she saw a leaf falling off a tree, she would be there to grab it before it hit the ground. She did a lot of farm work, but refused to milk the cows. Every Monday morning, she washed clothes in the backroom with a wringer washer unless Spotty (their dog) hid behind the stove predicting a thunderstorm would be in the area. She loved watching the Packers, and going to her grandson's sporting events. Many times she mentioned she could write a book about her grandsons - the perfect one and the instigator. She also enjoyed camping, fishing with family in nearby Wisconsin lakes, pushing those casino buttons, playing cards, completing jigsaw puzzles and working crossword puzzles. She loved to find the jets streaming in the sky. So when you see a jet, smile and think of the good times with her.
Ethel is survived by her daughter, Lynda (Leonard) Badertscher of Cedar City, Utah; her grandsons, Bradley (Julie) of Wauwatosa, WI and Timothy (Tran) of San Diego, CA; her brother, Albert (Shirley) Schulze; and sister, Bonnie Robotka of Beloit; along with many nieces and nephews. She is preceded in death by her husband; parents; brothers, Clarence and Richard Schulze; sisters, Helen Burrow and Mildred Ringen.
