Name of Deceased: AUGUSTINE (SHULTZ), Charlotte
Name of Newspaper: Macoupin County Enquirer, Carlinville, IL
Date of Obituary: August 8, 1917
Obituary: Mrs. Charlotte AUGUSTINE SHULTZ, was born April 30, 1835 in Pennsylvania, and was married to Meschech SHULTZ, Mar 20, 1853. They resided in her native state of Maryland until 1867, when they removed to a farm northwest of Shipman. In the year of 1891, they again removed to their home in Shipman. On Dec. 3, 1907 her husband preceded her to his final resting place, where on Saturday afternoon, Aug. 4 at 5:00 p.m. Mrs. SHULTZ joined him to abide with him where another separation will not be realized, but where sweet and undisturbed repose will forever be enjoyed under a Heavenly Father's tender care. To this union was born eight children, Alonzo, Jennie FISCHER, Frank, Cora DODSON, Herman, Alice MILLER, and Chesty FASOLD, the youngest, who died ten years ago next October. She also leaves sixteen grandchildren and five great grandchildren. We wish to add these sainted parents enordered by the family the following praiseworthy acts in their earthly careers, as we find it upon our church records, of which she was faithful and devoted member. With uniting zeal did this father and mother labor and give for the founding of a Lutheran church, the one of his early youth, until April 17, 1872, when their prayers and hopes were realized by an organization in their own home of 22 charter members and which was soon followed by the erection of the Lutheran Church which doubtless owes its existence to his untiring labors. That God has richly rewarded them for their zeal and devotion to his cause, I need only refer you to the family who have followed in their footsteps to the House of God. We are sad today when we recall mother SHULTZ' anxiety to make the improvements now prophesied and ordered and to see them before passing over the river and for which she had freely made her offering. But like David of old, she was not permitted and we humbly bow to the will of the wise disposer who do all things well. Mother SHULTZ will be sadly missed by all her sons and daughters, who so much enjoyed their frequent visits with Mother in her home and who was always glad to see them and sad to see them depart. But more still, the children of our common Father will sadly miss our sainted mother in Israel in this earthly home of Gods children where until the last few weeks, which she spent with her daughter, Jennie, her seat was never vacant, and her readiness to sympathy and assist was never known to abate. Her pastor will miss her absence with sadness, though he has been here but a short time, but long enough to know her value as a helper by her interested presence.
