Mynette June Ulrich
Mynette June Ulrich was born on August 25, 1950 in Emporia, Kansas. She went to be with the Lord on March 15, 2020 at 1:42 PM.
She supervised the Fruitcake and Jelly Kitchen at The College of The Ozarks for 32 years baking over 40,000 fruitcakes a year. She loved and was proud of her responsibilities.
She had a natural talent for sewing and made quilts for family, students, faculty and many others and she always designed her own patterns.
As she was always doing for others, she helped many students when in need and attended many of their weddings and baby showers as well, and never missed the Pinning and Blessing Ceremony for the C of O Nursing Program.
She enjoyed having her Smiley Face collection at the Fruit Cake Kitchen in which she started collecting after her twin sister’s death in 1983. She then started a sister’s weekend with her other two sisters that lasted for 27 years.
Mynette proudly introduced herself as the “Fruit Cake Lady or “Mrs. Ed” as they celebrated their 52nd wedding anniversary last year. She was very devoted at being a wife, mom, grandma and great grandma and friend. She was her kids and grandkids #1 fan, supporting them in all their activities.
She was preceded in death by her parents Marion and Lela Goldsmith, her twin sister Mary Jane Solida; mother and father-in-law, Henry and Helen Ulrich.
