Obituary for Arthur E Schulz

Arthur E. Schulz Jr., of Black River Falls, WI, died on Wednesday, May 8, 2019, at the Black River Memorial Hospital in Black River Falls, WI.

Arthur was born on November 24, 1929, at the Roseland Community Hospital on the south side of Chicago. His parents were Arthur E. Schulz Sr. and Frieda (Buenger) Schulz. He was born just a few weeks after the Great Depression began. He was baptized into the name of the Triune God on December 22, 1929, at the Zion Lutheran Church in Roseland by Pastor M. Piehler, and thereby became a child of God and an heir of eternal life.

Arthur's family lived only briefly in Roseland, and in pursuit of employment settled in the village of Elizabeth, IL. They became members of the St. Paul's Ev. Lutheran Church, affiliated with the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod, where Arthur was confirmed by Pastor Erwin A. Wiedbush on June 27, 1943.

The Lord seemed to direct things that Arthur should prepare for the ministry. In the fall of 1943 he enrolled at Concordia Lutheran High School and College in Milwaukee, WI. He graduated from High School on June 6, 1947, and from College with honors on June 10, 1949.

He continued his college education by going to the Concordia Seminary in St. Louis in the fall of 1949. Due to doctrinal differences, he was able apply, be accepted and be transferred to the Bethany Lutheran Seminary in Mankato, MN, affiliated with the Norwegian Synod, where he continued as a student from September, 1950 through May of 1953. He came to fully appreciate the wonders of the Gospel through dedicated teachers such as Dr. Norman A Madson, Dr. S.C. Ylvisaker, Prof. G.O. Lillegard and others.

Arthur received a Divine Call to Zion Lutheran Church at Tracy, Minnesota. He was installed and ordained into the ministry on December 13, 1953 by vacancy Pastor David L. Pfeiffer. C.M. Gullerud was President of the Norwegian Synod at that time.

On July 9, 1961, Arthur Schulz married Olaila Hanson, daughter of Pastor and Mrs. Clarence Hanson. Her father officiated in the wedding. The Lord blessed them with their first daughter, Pamela Marie, on June 1, 1962.

There was synodical controversy when in 1955, the ELS voted to suspend fellowship with the Missouri Synod. As discussions continued, Arthur Schulz left his calling at Tracy, MN, and moved briefly to Eau Claire, WI. He received a Call to Prince of Peace congregation in Hecla, SD, affiliated with the CLC-Church of the Lutheran Confession, which he accepted, and was installed on July 21, 1963 by Pastor H.E. Rutz, of Jamestown, ND. Their second daughter, Karen Esther, was born on May 25, 1965. Arthur then received another Call from congregations in Stoddard and Onalaska, WI which he was led to accept, and was installed by vacancy Pastor, Prof. John Lau, on October 13, 1968.

Arthur accepted over the years a total of two more Calls, one to St. Peter's Lutheran Church in Stambaugh, MI, where he was installed on February 5, 1984 by Pastor Walter Schaller of Marquette. It was here that the old but beautiful parsonage experienced a fire, originating from a place in the wiring. Arthur's final accepted congregational Call was to Trinity Lutheran Church in Millston, WI, where he was installed on August 14,1994, by Pastor Paul Gurgel. He served here until his retirement on December 31, 2005, and has since continued to be a member while living in Black River Falls, WI.

Arthur has enjoyed doing some translating of many books and devotions from German to English, with one book being published, “Preparing for Death”. He has also been involved with doing indexing for the Lutheran Spokesman, enjoying time with his family, and spending time on his computer.

Surviving is his daughter Pamela Schulz of Madison, WI, and a few of his cousins.

Arthur was preceded in death by his parents, his wife Olaila, and his daughter Karen.
