Schnuch-1 was imported in 2013 with a couple ancestry files which don't seem to be valid anymore.  There is no other info except her name.  What can we do?

Source the profiles?  Wikitree doesn't delete profiles when they are unsourced, unfortunately.

Maybe someone can recycle it to another person with same last name.

Right. Source the profile. See the Deletion FAQ. Note especially where it says, 

Can I change a profile to represent a different person? 

No. See Recycling WikiTree IDs.

That I presume is her married name, but I didn’t find a Maria Schnuch birth record
thanks - I am going to enter this information as her.  I don't find any other connections at this time.

to be clear...

the gedcom that created that profile has been deleted a long time ago. WikiTree only stores them for about 30-60 days.

but the profile(s) created from it can't be deleted. They can be edited or merged.

Gedcom's are not family trees. They are merely transfer files to move tree information from one genealogy app to another. Be warned, that not all info will transfer (neither in the export, nor in the import), regardless of which app you use.
