Barbara Ann Schultz

Funeral services for Barbara Schultz, 65, of Ledbetter, Texas, were held on Saturday, October 7, 2017 at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Giddings with Rev. Chris Nietubicz officiating.

Barbara Ann Urban Schultz was born on August 29, 1952 in La Grange, Texas, the daughter of Vernon Walter Urban and Adele Ruth (Zoch) Urban. She was baptized on September 14, 1952 and confirmed on April 6, 1966 at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Giddings by Rev. Emil Krugler. Her confirmation verse was Psalm 46:1, “God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.” Barbara was united in marriage to Glenn Schultz on October 8, 1977 at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Giddings by Rev. Robert Koenig. She was employed as the principal’s secretary at Giddings High School for many years before retiring in 2012. Barbara was an active member of Immanuel Lutheran Church where she had helped with the Ladies Aid and also assisted with the Meals on Wheels program in Giddings. She enjoyed taking care of her cats and taking an occasional gambling trip. After her father’s death in 1966, Barbara took care of her brothers and sisters while her mother worked two jobs to make ends meet earning her the nickname, “sister-mama”.
