Annie Marie Cominotto Obituary
COMINOTTO, Annie Marie Annie Marie Cominotto passed away peacefully on Saturday, December 8, 2018 with family by her side. She was 95. Annie was the oldest of 11 children of Richard and Olivia Schulze of Niederwald, Texas. Her early years were spent picking cotton on the family farm. In 1943 at age 21 she enlisted in the US Coast Guard, and served in Florida, South Carolina, Texas, and Washington State. After her Coast Guard service, she enrolled at Trinity University, and then transferred to The University of Texas at Austin. She earned her BBA in 1952, and her MBA in 1957 --at what is now the McCombs School of Business. That same year she married Anthony Louis Cominotto of Trieste, Italy. His work with the Hilton Hotel Group took them to New Orleans, Dallas, Atlantic City, New York City, and Montreal, Canada. After Anthony's untimely death in 1961, Annie returned to Austin and began a long teaching career as a high school educator with the AISD, and later as an instructor with Austin Community College. She retired from teaching in 1986 and began work with the US Treasury Department. Annie believed that all people were created equal --she didn't have a racist bone in her body. And she was before her time believing that women were just as capable as men. She was practical --and wasted nothing. She sewed her own clothes --and some for her two sons as well. And she was always kind to animals. Annie is preceded in death by her sisters, Gladys Schulze, Augusta Swilly, and Bertha Clifton --and her brothers, David, Pete, and Richard Schulze. She is survived by her sisters, Katy Vocke, Mary Canino, and Mertha Baily, her brother Herb Schulze, her sons Dante and Conrad, and her grandchild Isabella (Max), Cominotto. Her memorial service will be held at University United Methodist Church, where she has been a member since 1950, on Saturday, January 19, 2019, at 2:00pm. The family thanks all of the caring staff at Brookdale at Spicewood Springs for the loving care that Annie received these last four years. In lieu of flowers please make a donation to The Boy Scouts of America --her favorite cause.
