Mildred Miltenberger

Mildred Miltenberger: May 7, 1918 – August 24, 2022

Mildred Miltenberger was born May 7, 1918, near Richland, Nebraska to Henry and Ruzina “Rose” (Hejhal) Dietrich. She grew up in Colfax County and attended country schools there. Mildred married John Pinker and later married Adam Miltenberger. She is survived by her children and many nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her parents, sisters, Albina Lauterbach, Toni Shockley and Mary Dietrich, Rosie Dietrich, brothers Henry, Anton, Roman, Milo and Lad Dietrich.

As some of you may know, or perhaps not – Millie had quite a flair for “loud colors” – she loved bright colors, the brighter, the gawdier, the better. The past few years Millie could be seen any and every day of the week sporting the most colorful leggings imaginable. In honoring Mildred we would ask anybody who plans on attending the internment ceremony to wear your brightest colors, be it leggings, hat, ties, shirt, skirt or blouse, kindly sport the most colorful attire you can find in your closet. That is a sure way to know that Mildred is smiling down on us as we lay her to rest.

Beth Schadel

Beth Schadel: November 17, 1935 – August 21, 2022

Our beloved mom, oma and friend, Beth Schadel, of Colorado Springs, Colorado, went to be with the Lord on Sunday Aug 21, 2022.

She was born to William and Edith Rothell in November 1935 in Westover, Texas. The family later moved to Dallas where she fell in love with city life as it was back then with street cars, baseball games and later modeling for Neiman Marcus. She spent a semester at the University of Texas before she trained as a flight attendant with Continental Airlines. In 1955, Beth met her future husband, Hal Schadel, a pilot. Beth and Hal married in 1956 and for 21 years followed Hal’s Air Force career through several nation-wide assignments. The family moved to Cheyenne, Wyoming in 1970 where, while raising the family, Beth finished her teaching degree, taught kindergarten and pre-kindergarten at Trinity Lutheran School and then at Our Savior Lutheran School. She loved the churches she attended and always attracted people who became part of our extended family. She loved teaching and believed education was key to success. She loved to travel and see new places. She enjoyed reading, especially cookbooks, and she was herself a wonderful cook. She loved gardening, especially her roses which the deer loved. Her friends have described her as warm and loving but also sweet and sassy. She will be very missed.

Celia Schadel

Celia Schadel: December 28, 1960 – August 22, 2022

Our beloved Celia went to be with the Lord on Monday, August 22, 2022 after enduring a long struggle with health complications. She was surrounded by her devoted husband, loving sister, and Davis Hospice nurses during transition.

Celia (Cleveland) Schadel was born and raised in San Jose, California until age 16 when her family moved to wonderful Wyoming. Celia excelled in high school. She joined the FBLA club, as well as started her career at the Laramie County Clerk of District Court. Her organizational skills and talents eventually promoted her to office manager where she graciously served for 28½ years. Her job duties called her to serve on special projects including a statewide computer system and project manager for countless other vital tasks.

Celia was joined in marriage to Carl William Schadel on July 27, 1985, and they lived their lives together in Cheyenne. As a couple, they enjoyed family, traveling, dancing, and outdoor adventures.
