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.\n\nLoretta 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.\n\nShe 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. \n\nWhile 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. \n\nLoretta 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. \n\nOne 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.\n\nIn 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. \n\nLoretta was a huge fan of the Green Bay Packers and was, of course, a shareholder. \n\nLoretta 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).
