Schuld. She was raised on a farm and attended the Pleasant View
School. After leaving home, she honed her lifelong culinary skills

milk delivery business.
a devoted wife, mother and homemaker. Her main passion in life
could be summed up in one word and that is "family." Nothing was
more important to her than both her immediate and extended
families. In the early 1980s, she took her passion to a new level
when, equipped with just an old typewriter and a gritty
determination, she compiled and published complete family histories
of both the Schuld and Schlegelmilch families. Having grown up as a
child of the Great Depression, "Mom" practiced such skills as
gardening and canning, darning socks, patching old blue jeans, and
making quilts -- all in addition to being the best cook we've ever
known. She was also an avid student of the Bible.
