Funeral services were held in Estherville Monday afternoon at three o’clock from the Methodist church for Mrs. Frank Schultz who passed away at the hospital in Frederic, Wis., Wednesday afternoon. Rev. Geo. Seimens of Grantsburg, Wis., of whose church Mrs. Schultz was a member officiated at the services. Interment was made in Oak Hill Cemetery. Members of the Eastern Star lodge attended the service in a body.

Estherville was the home of Mrs. Schultz almost her entire life. The following obituary written by her pastor Rev. Seimens expresses well not only the esteem with which she was held in her home at Grantsburg but in Estherville as well.

Mrs. Frank Schultz was born in Dickinson county Feb. 14, 1892 and moved to Estherville with her parents in the year of 1908, where she resided until the time of her marriage to Frank Schultz Feb. 24, 1915. They lived on a farm in Emmet County for five years and then moved to Gantsburg, Wis., spending eight years of labor and pleasure in our neighborhood.

Mrs. Schultz was taken to the Frederic Hospital for the first time about eight weeks ago. She remained at the hospital for three weeks and seemed improved, and returned to her home in hopes of a complete recovery. But last week she was compelled to return to the hospital and on October 10, 1928 at 3 o’clock in the afternoon passed to the Great Beyond. She leaves to mourn her departure her husband, her parents, Mr. and Mrs. William Dahna, brothers, Vern, Glenn, Le Roy, Frances, five sisters, Miss Tena, Mrs. Herbert Nourse, Mrs. Willard Condon, Mrs. Nellie Berge of Estherville and Mrs. Taylor McClintock of Chicago.

Mrs. Schultz was confirmed in the Lutheran church at an early age in life. She was an active and faithful member of the Eastern Star.

Mrs. Schultz with her pleasant smile and sweet disposition has endeared herself in the hearts of the people of Grantsburg, Alpha and the surrounding community. She always gave the impression that she enjoyed life at its fullest. She had a pleasant mood and sweet smile for everyone with whom she came in contact.

For a time we walked with her in the pilgrimage of life and remembering her many virtues, we are indeed mourners and in this house of sorrow we drop the tears of deepest Sympathy. Mrs. Schultz will be remembered as a true friend, a kind neighbor and a loving wife. (Vindicator and Republican, Estherville, IA, October 17, 1928)
