    History SSDI states card issued in Oregon in 1953.
    Obituary - DALLAS - Mathilda Margaret Schultz, 97, was carried to her Heavenly Father by angels on May 1, 2011. She had been a resident of Dallas Retirement Village for 17 years.
    She was born on August 2, 1913 near Litchfield, Nebraska to Margaretha and Abraham Wall. When she was 17, her mother died and this was very difficult for Mathilda, being the youngest of 3 children. In July 1932 Mathilda welcomed a stepmother, Elizabeth Olfert, into the family. Elizabeth was a widow with 5 young children so the family grew. From this marriage, two more sons were born.
    A good-looking young man, Dave, came into Mathilda's life by way of choir practices at church. After several years of friendship, they married on September 28, 1932 in Lustre, Montana. From there, they moved to Fort Peck, Montana, then to California. By 1942, Dave and Mathilda decided to move to Dallas, Oregon where they settled on a 12-½ acre place on Oakdale Rd. By this time they had 4 children and in 1950 the 5th child arrived. They continued buying land to develop their farm into a Grade A dairy business for many years.
    Evangelical Bible Church was their place of worship and loving service till they moved to the Dallas Retirement Village in 1994. Dave died in 1996. They had been married for 64 years. To keep busy, Mathilda took on several activities. She wrote her life's story and had it printed for all her family members. She also spent many hours on her sewing machine making hundreds of doll quilts, with a doll enclosed, to take to the Salem Union Gospel at Christmas time for gifts. She loved playing Bingo and making friends at the Village. Mathilda loved new adventures. She and Dave enjoyed a trip to Israel. In Nov. 1992 she made sure the whole family could go to Hawaii with money saved from selling timber from the farm. Son, Jon, and wife, Joyce, took Mom to Hawaii another time where they encouraged her to snorkel, ride the boogie board and not act her age! What fun! Another son, Marlin, took Mom on rafting trips and her comment when done was, "And what's next?" Son, Les, took Mom for a round-trip ride in his 18-wheeler from Salem to Eugene. She reminded Les that he had always wanted to drive a big truck and now she got to ride along. Mathilda attended several family reunions at Port Townsend, Washington, a campsite near Union, Washington on the Hood Canal and the Oregon Coast. The last family meal with Mom was a wonderful feast at the new home of Bob and Betty in Albany, Oregon. She loved her family dearly and prayed that each child, grandchild and great-grandchild would learn to love her LORD and serve Him.
    Mathilda is survived by daughters, Jean Classen (Harvey) of Dallas, Betty Isaac (Bob) of Albany; sons, Les Schultz (Mary) of Salem, Marlin Schultz (Jan) of Eugene, Jon Schultz (Joyce) of Poulsbo, Washington; brothers, Harvey Wall (Martha) of Dallas, Lee Wall (Kathy) of Salem; step-brothers, Melvin Olfert of Dallas, Homer Olfert of Salem; step sister, Sophie Klassen; 18 grandchildren, 36 great-grandchildren, 3 great-great-grandchildren.
    Memorial services will be at 11:00 AM on May 14, 2011 at the Evangelical Bible Church, Dallas. Memorial gifts may be made to the Gideons or the Salem Union Gospel Mission.
