Eunice Dagmer (Oslund) Schulz, of Lakeville, formerly of Brunswick, passed away on Tuesday, January 9, 2018 at the Fairview Ridges Hospital in Burnsville. She was 90 years old.

Eunice was born April 2, 1927 at home, in Brunswick Township, Kanabec County, Minnesota to Arvid and Hannah (Nordin) Oslund. She grew up on the family farm, the youngest of eight siblings, and attended the Brunswick country school. She then attended Mora High School and graduated in 1945. On January 5, 1946, she was married to Wallace Schulz. To this union, three children were born. Wallace and Eunice bought the farm where Eunice grew up and they lived on that farm their entire married life. After Wallace passed away in 1998, Eunice moved to North Mankato, where she lived for eighteen years, before moving to Walker Methodist: Highview Hills in Lakeville.

Eunice and Wallace were a great team, working on the farm, seven miles south of Mora. Eunice applied for a teller position at Kanabec State Bank in Mora where she was employed for several years before she was offered a position at Ogilvie State Bank as head teller. After retirement, she returned to Kanabec State Bank where she worked part time for a few more years.

The loves of her life were her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. She loved to cook and bake for them and for anyone who was hungry. Whoever walked in the door needed to have a cup of coffee, a piece of pie, cinnamon roll or whatever was in the oven at the time. She cooked many turkey dinners for the Senior League at Immanuel. She loved to go on picnics, preparing a chicken dinner along with a crock of beans and potato salad.

She also served as choir director at Immanuel Lutheran and sang many beautiful soprano solos. Eunice was also a gardener and kept the family supplied with canned tomatoes. She grew flowers, made hats, scarves and mittens with her knitting machine, and created many beautiful pillows, quilts, and rag rugs. She felt needed in North Mankato as she helped Bonnie care for Don, her son-in-law, for many years, until she needed a caregiver herself.

Eunice was preceded in death by her parents, husband Wallace, son-in-law John Hanson, her siblings and their spouses; Hilding (Ann) Oslund, Mabel (George) Thulander, Adeline (Floyd) Rowley, Leona (Rudy) Erickson, Wallace (Doris) Oslund, Jan (Lewis) Agranoff, and Luella (Bud) Peterson.

She is survived by her children, Jane Hanson, Rev. Gary (Debbie) Schulz, and Bonnie (Rev. Don) Roberts; grandchildren, Jeff Hanson, Julie (Ryan) Goebel, Chris (Dannette) Hanson, Christel (Matthew) Meyer, Joel (Emily) Schulz, Sarah (Caleb) Baker, Jeremy (Brandi) Roberts, Paul (Heather) Roberts, and Katie (William) Sordahl; 19 great grandchildren; many nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

As you cope with your loss, may you be comforted by the “Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort” (2 Cor 1:3) that one day, “all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.” (John 5:28, 29) May the words from God’s word, the Bible give you comfort now and real hope for the future. My deepest sympathy

    Eunice (and Wally too) were so kind to me as a kid and long after. On trips back to the area, I enjoyed my many visits with them both when they were still at the farm in Brunswick. Just as you say, there was always coffee and some thing sweet to eat at every visit. Eunice was a gem – thanks for sharing her with us. My best to you, Jane, Gary and Bonnie at your mom’s passing.

    To the family, so very sorry for your loss. While we did not know Eunice as well as most, we have heard so many stories from our granddaughter Hannah Hanson and the wonderful days spent at her great grandmother’s and her famous oatmeal she made. Tom and I had the pleasure of sharing a Thanksgiving meal with Eunice, Jane, Chris and family, and heard wonderful stories regarding the farm etc.
