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.
