Martha Ellen Schultz, of Mora, passed away on Wednesday, May 10, 2017 at the Scandia House in Mora. She was 78 years old.

Martha was born on December 5, 1938 to Robert A. and Bessie G. (Bitner) Posey, in Maplewood Township, Otter Tail County, Minnesota. At a young age her family moved to Aitkin and then to Warman. She attended Warman School and then Mora High School, graduating in 1956.

In January of 1958, her brother Bill Posey was discharged from the Army. He came home with an Army buddy named Hubert “Hub” Schultz. Martha became smitten with Hub and they were eventually married on August 1, 1959 at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Ogilvie. They moved to St. Cloud for a couple of years returning to the Mora area in 1961 and they lived in the area ever since.

Martha was trained in secretarial work. She worked for Mora Public Schools and C. Elmer Nelson Insurance Agency. She then started working in the Kanabec County Attorney’s office. She worked for Geo. Angstman and Joe Loren for 22 years. After retirement, she enjoyed quilting at home and with the quilting club at Zion Lutheran Church. She made numerous quilts for family and friends. She also enjoyed going to the lake. She and Hub had a trailer on Seth Lake at Red Indian Campground in Aitkin MN. Many memories were made with family and friends at the lake.

    I felt so sad reading about Martha’s passing. I have known her since high school and got to know her even better when she worked for my father in his law office. She was a great gal and I know will be missed by many in Mora– especially her family. Wish we could drive up for the service but will be thinking about everyone involved. Our sincere sympathy to the family and friends of Martha.

    Wade, Mike, and families…

    So sorry about your mom. Sad news for everyone. Wish that there was something to say that could make things easier for you. Remember how great your mom was and what a great family she raised with your dad. You have all given us many laughs, smiles, and memorable stories!! Wish I could be there to hug you in person. Sending all my love until then.

    Hi Wade,

    I had no idea that your mom passed away until today so I will not be able to attend the celebration of her life. I wish I could, she was such a lovely lady! Always welcoming and friendly to all. Just wanted you to know that I’ll be thinking of you and your family. Big hugs and warm thoughts, Jean (Erickson)
