Marjorie “Margie” Ann Schultz is the Duneland YMCA Senior of the Month. Margie celebrates her senior membership and activities year around, but she’s thrilled to be honored and appreciated this month for her contributions to the Y Senior program. Margie was born on December 10, 1939 in Boone Grove, Indiana and graduated from high school there as well. After high school, she continued her education at Ivy Tech in Valparaiso. In 1961 Margie married Thomas R. Schultz. They had two daughters, Chris Galvin and Debbie Siehert. Both of her daughters live in Portage, Indiana. The Schultz family enjoys traveling. Margie says she treasures memories of trips to Arizona, Mexico, Florida, Connecticut, Missouri, and also extensively touring Indiana.

Lulu, a 7-month old Shih Tzu that works at Life Care Center of the Willows in Valparaiso, is just like any other pup – she’s sweet, playful, and cuddly. What makes the life that Lulu leads in the dog world so special and unique, is the fact that she comes into work every day with Life Care Center’s Director of Nursing Sabra Coons, Lulu’s owner. While Lulu has her puppy moments, she is amazing at fulfilling her role in her part-time position at the Center.
