She was born November 4, 1930, in Madison, WI to Marvin and Anna Hinrichs.  She graduated from Madison East High School and attended Carthage College where she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1953.  On June 14, 1953, she married Neil C. Schultz of Harvard, IL in Waterloo, WI.  

Most of her professional career was teaching, including Richmond, IL – Marysville, CA – Harvard, IL, and Alden Hebron where she taught Home Economics.  She also was the owner/operator of the Village Peddler where she continued to teach quilting and crafting classes.  She traveled across the country to quilt shows and presented seminars about historical quilts.   She also was a founding member and president of the Harvard Village Quilters.
