Dorothy Mabel (Shaw) Schultz was born March 1, 1921, in Deming, New Mexico, the daughter of George and Flora (Comstock) Shaw. As a young girl, Dorothy moved with her family to Minnesota where she attended country school in Fraser Township. On Jan. 30, 1946, Dorothy was united in marriage to Kenneth Schultz at the First Lutheran Parsonage in Trimont, Minn. Together, the couple began farming in Galena Township and later Waverly Township before purchasing a farm in Fraser Township where they raised their three children, Duane, Sandra, and Lynn. Dorothy loved life on the farm and took pride in a hard day’s work. She enjoyed preparing meals for the family farm, raising her children, and baking the best frosted cut out cookies at her family’s request. Dorothy and Kenneth spent many years gathering friends and family for a meal and a game of cards. Dorothy was a member of the St. James Lutheran Church in Northrop where she was active in Ladies Aid. She also enjoyed gathering with friends at the Ladies Social Club. Dorothy loved working on afghans and baking her grandchildren homemade pies. In her later years, she enjoyed playing cards at the Senior Citizens Center, word searches, crossword puzzles and Hallmark TV. She was a wonderful mother and had a special place in her heart for her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She will be greatly missed by those that loved her and we look forward to celebrating what would have been her 100th birthday. Left to cherish her memory are her children, Duane Schultz of Fairmont, Minn., Sandra (Everett) Rettig of Jackson, Minn., and Lynn (Steven) Harris of Fairmont, Minn.; grandchildren, April (Todd) Hartzler of Clive, Iowa, Jason (Jennifer) Harris of Fairmont, Joshua (Elizabeth) Harris of St. Peter, Minn., Courtney (Michael) Steubs of Edina, Minn., and Tyler Rettig of Sioux Falls, S.D.; great-grandchildren, Sophia, Alaina, Kaitlyn, Addison, Grayson, Julia, Parker Kenneth, and Eve; sister-in-law, Elaine Johnson of Trimont, Minn.; brother-in-law, Daryl (Lois) Schultz of Trimont, Minn.; as well as many nieces, nephews, extended family and friends.
