Beatrice Schulze, 89, the oldest of four daughters of George and Sally Rains, was born Jan. 24, 1913, at Broken Arrow, Okla. She died July 7, 2002, at Houston House, where she had been a resi-dent of the last four years. Her family moved to Chicago, Ill., when she was about 3. She grew up in Chicago, attending Grant School and McKinley High School. Mrs. Schulze was a teletype op-erator until she met and married Erv Schulze in 1933. During the Depression, the Schulzes had two boys and lived in Chicago until 1947 when the family moved to Licking. They lived on the old Rod Jackson farm, where city girl Bea learned the joys of rustic farm liv-ing. They moved back to Chicago but returned to Licking in the early ’70s, purchasing a farm west of town. They restored the house, making it their dream home. In later years, they lived in the Maplecrest Apartments in Licking. They were charter members of the Bridge Builders. Surviving are two sons, Erwin and Walter; one sister, Thelma; six grandchildren and five great-grand-children. Memorial services were July 10 at the United Methodist Church in Licking under the direction of Fox Funeral Home of Licking. “
