Delores died on Friday, Aug. 1, 2008, at her home following a 19-year journey with cancer.
Delores was born on Nov. 30, 1938, in Albert Lea, the daughter of Irven and Catherine (Evans) Greenwood. She had lived in Albert Lea her whole life. Delores grew up in the Methodist Church, becoming a member of St. Theodore in 1956. She attended school in Albert Lea with the class of 1957 and later received her GED. On Feb. 14, 1956, Delores was united in marriage to Roger John Schultz at St. Theodore. Their marriage of nearly 53 years was blessed with five children. In the early years of their marriage Delores was a homemaker and mother mostly. She then went to work at Streater from 1973 to 1978, then Bridon Cordage from 1978 to 1988, and finally Dave Syverson Ford from 1988 to 1999, where she was a cashier and accounts receivable clerk.
Delores loved getting together with her family and really doted on those awesome grandchildren. She was so happy that she and her siblings always stayed so close. Roger and Delores loved to travel. They had been in 48 of the 50 states, only missing Louisiana and South Carolina. They also traveled to much of Canada. Delores loved photography, jigsaw puzzles, reading, and music. She particularly enjoyed Christian and country music, especially the Gathiers.
