Dolores Helen (Dodie) Jolissaint Schulte, 84, of Corydon, Ind., passed away on Thursday, Jan. 7, 2021.

Dodie attended Holy Trinity Grade School and graduated onto New Albany High School. Following high school, she was employed by the former St. Edwards Hospital as an office receptionist. It was there that Dodie met her loving husband, George. After dating for one year, they were wed at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church in New Albany, Ind. After two years of employment, Dodie became a dedicated and loving housewife and mother of her five daughters. She was an avid member of the resurrection choir at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Corydon and, in her limited spare time, she loved to play bingo. She also loved to accompany George on many boating and fishing outings. Their union lasted for a blessed and happy 63 years. Because of Dodie’s loving and caring personality, she will greatly be missed by all, especially her husband, daughters, grandkids and great-grandkids.

She was born on Aug. 8, 1936, in New Albany, to the late Frank and Bertha Ems Jolissaint.

Along with her parents, she is preceded in death by her daughter, Valarie Schulte, and sisters, Mary Frances Jolissaint and Bertha Ann Jolissaint.

Dodie is survived by her loving husband of 63 years, George Schulte; daughters, Denise Kifer, Frances Lasley, Patricia Mersmann (Jim) and Jean Wolfe (Samuel F. II); sisters, Theresa Leavy (Ed), Carylon Seger and Marylon Ehlers; nine grandchildren; 15 great-grandchildren; and many nieces, nephews, extended family members and friends.

Visitation will be from 2 to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 13, 2021, at Newcomer Cremations, Funerals & Receptions, New Albany (3309 Ballard Lane) and will continue from 8:30 to 10 a.m. on Thursday, Jan. 14, 2021.

Her funeral Mass will be celebrated at 11 a.m. at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Corydon on Thursday with burial to follow at St. Mary New Albany Catholic Cemetery in New Albany. Mass will be celebrated by Fr. Rob Hankee and Fr. Juan Valdes from Indianapolis and Fr. Bill Ernst from New Albany, who are very close friends of the family.
