It is with deep sadness we acknowledge the passing of Adelyn Louise Schulz (Severa) beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and great-great grandmother on Friday April 24, 2020, she was 99 years old. Living in her own home until several weeks ago, she was always interested in her large family’s activities and one of her great pleasures was talking to them and getting caught up on family and area news.
Adelyn was born on March 12, 1921 in Stanton County to Adolf and Amelia (Konicek) Severa who owned several farms in both Stanton and Madison county. Married to Otto Vernon Schulz on November 11, 1947, a decorated WWII Veteran, she and Otto lived on several farms in the Norfolk, Battle Creek and Madison area where they raised their eight children. During those years she was an avid gardener growing even more than her large family could consume so that she could sell extra produce locally. She also loved working on her embroidery and had made each of her children and many of her grandchildren quilts, pillowcases and tea towels. Always willing to share her needlework with others she was a frequent contributor to local charity auctions.
She is now reunited with Otto her husband of 39 years, her brother Joseph Severa, her sisters Lorraine Anderson, Mary Lou Sayers and her son-in-law Ron Summers. She is survived by her brother Duffy Severa of Fremont, NE, his wife Shirley and her brother-in-law Alvin Sayers of Clarkson, NE and her children/grandchildren: Shirley Summers of Madison, NE and her two children David Summers and Denise Summers; Robert Schulz of Madison, NE, and his daughter Bobbi Ottis; Raymond Schulz, his wife Judy of Atkinson, NE and their children Lisa Wells, Michael Schulz, Adam Schulz; Sharon Louk, her husband Cloyde of Weston, MO and her children Frederick Mendus and Amelia Mendus; Sandra Hake, her husband Allen of Creston, NE and their children, Tammy Loewe, Kay Svitak, Ron Hake, Tracy Hake, Brenda Hake, Jason Hake, Heather Hake, Dustin Hake; Richard (Rich) Schulz, his wife Julie of Albion, NE and their children, Ryan Schulz and Melissia Schulz; Shar Beiermann, her husband Luke of Madison, NE and their children Jacquie Beiermann, Candice Beiermann, Tara Beiermann, Greg Perdue and Kristina Beiermann; and Sharilyn Heller, her husband James of Madison, NE and their children Sara Jones and Travis Heller, in addition to forty-nine grandchildren and six great-great grandchildren.
