Madalene (Magdalene) Schuetz

August 9th, 1934 – April 25, 2023

Madalene Schuetz went to be with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on Tuesday evening, April 25th, 2023. Madalene was born on August 9th, 1934 to Fredrick and Hedwig Lange near the town of Ferland, Saskatchewan. She was the 9th of 11 children. Madalene met the love of her life, Lloyd, and they married on June 20th, 1953. He went on before her to be with the Lord just a few months ago. Madalene will be deeply missed and memories of her are cherished by her daughters Cheryle Pelzer (husband Bob) and Ronda Wells (husband Brian), and sons Bev Schuetz and Jerry Schuetz (wife Brenda). Madalene loved her grandchildren, Pam (Josh) Allen, Steven (Fritzi) Pelzer, Jen (Jeremy) Caspell, David (Jodi) Pelzer, Tim (Sarah) Pelzer, Nathan (Shannyn) Schuetz, Tyson Schuetz, Jared (Lexi) Schuetz, Sam Schuetz, Josh Schuetz, and her nine great-grandchildren, Chris, Tahlia, Amira, Elias, Rosa, Charlie, and Bethany. Gabriella and Byron went to heaven earlier and Madalene is enjoying them there.

Madalene is survived by her brother, Audie Lange, and sister, Heidi Boldt, along with many nieces and nephews. She has left behind friends and sisters and brothers in the Lord whom she loved and fellowshipped with, interceded for, and ministered the Word of God with around the world in years gone by, alongside her husband.

Madalene is predeceased by her parents, Fredrick and Hedwig Lange, sisters Dorthea, Amanda, Margaret, Cecelia, Lucy, and Salome, and brothers Ben and Wally.

Madalene enjoyed sweet communion with Jesus and spent much time in prayer and in the Word of God. She thought the world of her husband and children, and the family home was very important to her. Her call to Africa led her to missionary work for many decades, which she put herself into, heart and soul, working alongside her husband. Madalene had a keen sense of humor, was practical with her hands, was a gifted teacher, and had tremendous insight into people and situations, often able to give wise counsel. Her smile and gentle spirit were noticed, and her friendship was treasured.
