Harriet K. Schultz

Harriet K. Schultz, 93, Woodstock, died Monday, July 22, 2013, at her home in Woodstock.

She was born Sept. 17, 1919 in Harvard to Edward and Emma (Schuldt) Knull.  

On Jan. 19, 1938, she married Charles B. Schultz at Emmanuel Evangelical Lutheran Church in Walworth, Wis.

She lived in Woodstock for the past 60 years and spent more than 85 years of her life in McHenry County. She was a factory inspector for the Woodstock Typewriter Company and the Woodstock Die Cast Company. She was a member of Grace Lutheran Church in Woodstock since 1954.  

She enjoyed fishing, gardening, crocheting and traveling on bus tours with her sister, Janette. She also was an avid Chicago White Sox fan.

She was a loving wife and a devoted mother. She moved her family to four different states while her husband served in the Air Force. Her quiet ways concealed a feisty, sometimes even stubborn streak, but she was always a loving, forgiving soul.
