Virginia Christena "Tootie" Schott, 92, of Marysville, died on Thursday, September 8, 2016.

She was born on May 16, 1924 in Austin Twp. MI. to the late Marshall and Elsie Shagena.

Tootie was one of five children. She married Michael Schott and they raised five children together.

Tootie was a loving mother, grandmother, sister and friend. She had the most generous, loving heart, always putting others before herself and touched so many lives with her presence. Her wit, sense of humor and warmth shined through. What made her the happiest was being surrounded by family and friends whatever the reason. Visitors would often catch her enjoying playing cards or dice games, with her children, grandchildren, and even great grandchildren and she would certainly play to win. She also enjoyed polka music, going to bingo or trying her luck at the casino with family and friends. Tootie greeted everyone with a sparkle in her eye and warm smile, making you feel right at home with her sweet, kind spirit. We are all thankful for the gift that was her life and she will be missed dearly.

She is survived by three children, Robert Schott, Joanne (Larry) Campbell and Michelle (Victor) Rebenock; five grandchildren, Renee Schott, Jodie Schott, Todd Campbell, Kyle Rebenock and Alicia Rebenock; a sister, Maxine (Bill) Green; and several great grandchildren, nieces and nephews. She was greeted at heaven's door by her husband, Michael; two sons, Ronald and David Schott; grandson, Doug Campbell; and siblings, Virgil and Curtis Shagena and Thelma Goheen.

Visitation will be held from 2-4 p.m. and 6-7:30 p.m. on Monday, September 12, 2016 at the Marysville Funeral Home, 1200 Michigan Ave., followed by the funeral service at 7:30 p.m. The Rev. Max Amstutz will officiate.

In lieu of flowers, the family gratefully requests that memorial contributions be made to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, 8111 LBJ Freeway, #425, Dallas, TX 75251, in support of her grandson's (Doug Campbell) legacy to fund research for blood cancer cures. To send condolences, visit
