Margery (Maggie) Schultheis (née Podest), a longtime resident of Dunmore, passed away unexpectedly on Monday, February 24, 2020, at the age of 62, surrounded by her loving family.
Maggie was a graduate of North Pocono High School and married her high school sweetheart, Louis Schultheis, in 1978. They have been married for 42 years.
Together, they built a life that took them to Virginia and New York before settling in Dunmore in 1984. She was a loving mother for almost 40 years and recently retired from her position as an office manager at a Moscow dental practice.
Maggie wore her heart on her sleeve and lived each day with deep compassion for others. She was selfless and giving, and felt feelings very deeply, especially joy and love. She made friends wherever she went and touched the lives and hearts of many. Maggie enjoyed her time doting on her grandchildren and practicing yoga at the Wonderstone Gallery in Dunmore. To say that she will be missed is a vast understatement.
She is survived by her husband, Lou; her son, Matthew of Warminster, and his wife Victoria, and grandson Alexander (5); daughter Lauren (Benjamin) of Moscow, and her husband Michael, and granddaughter Kira (9); and son, Michael of Tunkhannock and granddaughter Molly (10). She was preceded in death by her parents Rudolph and Margaret (Wahila) Podest.
A memorial service will be held at a later date.
