She was born July 17, 1925, in McCartyville, to August and Elizabeth Tuente Riethman. On June 18, 1947, she married Linus Schulze in McCartyville, and he preceded her in death March 11, 2011.

She was a member of the Church of the Holy Redeemer in New Bremen. Faithfully serving for 65 years, she was a member of the church choir, the St. Ann Altar Sodality, the church prayer chain and often led and prayed the rosary before and during services at the church. She was a charter member of the American Legion Post Auxiliary of Osgood and was a multi-gallon blood donor to the American Red Cross. Before she was married, she worked at the former Minster Box factory and then helped her husband on the family farm, raising chickens and selling eggs to numerous people in the area.
A Mass of Christian Burial will be 10:30 a.m. Saturday at the church, the Rev. Thomas Mannebach officiating. Burial will follow in the German Protestant Cemetery, New Bremen.
