Amelia Schultz was born in Duluth, Minnesota. This image is from a 1900s postcard giving a bird's eye view of the city.

Amelia "Minnie" Schulz
(1899-1988)

Amelia Schultz is the wife of the first cousin once removed of Lorain Berg, Calvin R. Berg, and Karl Brunhofer. She is also George Berg's granddaughter in-law.

Amelia Schultz was born in Duluth, Minnesota on 16 March 1899. According to the 1900 census, we know that she was living with her parents as well as two uncles--her father's brothers Rudolph and August--and a border names Charles Pagel.

By 1910, her family had moved to Saginaw, Michigan and she was living with her parents and two sisters. She was able to read, write, and speak English and had attended school at some point after 1 September 1910.

In 1917, Amelia began working at the Lufkin Rule company where she remained until her retirement in 1963. In 1920, she was a machine operator and in the 1930 census her occupation was listed as "weaver tape."

On 28 May 1924, she married Joseph Berg. Dr. Henry Fischer officiated at the wedding.

Amelia was a member of the First Presbyterian Church. She was also active in Guys and Dolls and the Audra Senior Club.1

Amelia died on 19 February 1988 at her winter home in Punta Gorda, Florida. Her funeral took place on 23 January 1988 at W.L. Case and Company Funeral Directors, 409 Adams, Saginaw, Michigan. Burial took place at the Oakwood Cemetery with the Reverend Ron Davids officiating. Individuals could express sympathy through a donation to the First Presbyterian Church or a charity of their choice.

1I am not sure of the focus of either of Guys and Dolls or the Audra Senior Club.
