Geneve Schultz

Geneve Schultz, 81, died on Sunday, March 23, 2008, after a long battle with cancer.

Born March 18, 1927 in a sod house in Fairdale, N.D., Geneve grew up a farm girl, the daughter of Norwegian immigrants George and Ann Myra. Geneve’s bold independence led her out on her own as a young woman, leaving her small-town life to live in Fargo, N.D. Some of her fondest memories were of living and working in Fargo with the Dr. Pepple family.

She met her husband, the late Alvin Robert “Bob” Schultz, and moved to Kennewick, Wash., and started a family. Soon afterwards, they moved to North Bend, where they raised their children. Geneve worked in many different capacities, from Ford Motor dealerships to Real Estate offices, the Drug Center pharmacy, and the local hardware store. Geneve loved seeing and serving the community, truly enjoying interaction with the people she met in her daily activities.

Geneve is survived by four children, Renee Hilliard, Evette Barry, Paul Schultz, and Bryan Schultz, and many grandchildren. She has three sisters, the late Salina Peterson of Sleepy Eye, Minn, and two surviving sisters, Eve Hawk, of Strongsville, Ohio, and Leola Olson of St. Paul, Minn.

Funeral arrangements were made by Snoqualmie Valley Funeral Chapel.
