Pat E Schulz, 81, of Lake Forest, passed away peacefully on August 5, 2022. Pat was born in Chicago to Patrick and Maude Coyne. Pat worked at the Saint Vincent De Paul Orphanage and had a lifelong love for animals and children. Pat later went on to become a professional dog trainer for over 52 years. In her free time, she enjoyed performing in shows with her own dogs. She accomplished 11 AKC OTCH’s with multiple breeds. Her greatest accomplishment was with her favorite dog “Smasher” obtaining multiple best in shows and a triple champion title. A feat that has never been repeated. Pat had an amazing talent with dogs that she passed along to her daughter Maureen. She was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, and friend and will be dearly missed.
Pat is survived by her loving husband Horst of 52 years; her dearest daughter Maureen; her cherished grandson Trevor Tobias and granddaughter Jessica Inman and her adoring brother John Coyne.
