Carol Ann Schulz Malloy

Tuesday, March 26, 2019

Carol Ann Schulz Malloy, 73, died Thursday, March 21, 2019, at her home in Galveston, Texas.

Carol was born in Sioux City on May 17, 1945, to Rudy Schulz and Lois Jauer Schulz. She spent the first seven years of her life growing up on a farm in Plymouth County with her older sisters, Lorri and Mary Lou, roaming the fields and playing in the open spaces. The family moved into the town of Le Mars, about 20 miles away from the farm, in 1953 where she grew up in a small town atmosphere knowing the joys and problems of a tight knit community.

She traveled off to college at Iowa State University, then moved on to Norfolk, Virginia, where her sister Mary Lou lived, to finish off a degree in sociology at Old Dominion University. She then developed a career in computer programming in the banking industry.

It was in Norfolk in 1974 that she met her husband, Dr. Michael Malloy, who was doing an internship at Norfolk General Hospital. Carol moved to Galveston to be with Mike in 1974.

In 1976, the two moved to Houston where she worked at Houston National Bank. From Houston she moved to Brooklyn Heights, New York, where Mike was doing additional training. She continued her computing career at Bankers Trust. It was in New York City that she developed her interest in distance running and ran her first New York City Marathon.  

She returned to Galveston in 1980 and began work in the Academic Computing Section of the University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB). In 1985, she moved to Kensington, Maryland, as her husband began work at the National Institutes of Health and where she worked with GEICO.

She further developed her running and biking skills there and participated in a number of competitive events. In addition, she obtained a degree in Mathematics at George Washington University.

In 1991, she and Mike returned to Galveston and UTMB. Carol became deeply involved in community life, becoming a leader in the activities at Trinity Episcopal Church, became an active member of the Galveston Beta Club, a proud member of MENSA, and as an avid quilter was a leader in the local guild and of the Quilting Bee group.

In 1993, she and Mike adopted a child and learned the joys and trials of parenting. Carol’s generous nature and willingness to help have made her beloved by all and she will be sorely missed. 

Carol is survived by her husband, Mike, and daughter, Elizabeth; son Brian Webster, Ames; her sister, Lorri Schumacher of Michigan; nephew, Scott Schumacher, Columbus, Indiana; niece, Vikki Camper, Katy, Texas; niece, Heidi Fisher of Long Island, New York; nephew, Atticus Fisher, Boston, Massachusetts; and nephew, Douglas Fisher, Richmond, Virginia.

A memorial service will be held at 10 a.m., Saturday, March 30, at Trinity Episcopal Church, 2216 Ball, Galveston, Texas. Arrangements are with the J. Levy & Termini Funeral home of Galvaston.

In lieu of flowers, memorial gifts in her name may be donated to Trinity Episcopal Church.
