In 1900, she and her parents, a sister and a brother moved to Luana where the family conducted a general store, in which she was a clerk for eight years. On March 4, 1908 she was married to Henry Schultz. They moved to the old Courson farm near Postville where they lived one year. They then purchased the old Oathout farm where they lived for two years. On account of ill health, they moved to Luana. One daughter, Jeanette, was born to them.
For 37 years the deceased assisted in the Luana Post Office. In her younger years she was an active worker in the Sunday School and Luther League. She held various offices in the Ladies Aid. For 23 and one-half years she was secretary of the organization and was also its vice president and treasurer for a number of years.
