Elizabeth Ann (Guinn) Shultz

November 1, 1939 — September 12, 2020

Peru, Indiana

Elizabeth Ann Shultz, 80, formerly of Deedsville, Indiana, passed away at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, September 12, 2020, at her residence surrounded by her family.

Born November 1, 1939, in Johnson City, Tennessee, she was the daughter of Alvin Guinn and the former Irma Garland.  On September 29, 1957, in Peru, Indiana, she was married to Donald B. Shultz.

Elizabeth was an active member of the Deedsville Community Church, where she enjoyed singing hymns and helping in any way she could.  For a few years after the kids were raised, she worked at McDonald’s in Rochester, where she was a manager. Don and Elizabeth lived in Deedsville, where their home was the center of activity.  With eight children, many friends and neighbors found their way to the Shultz family kitchen, where Elizabeth dished out many delicious meals and snacks.  She loved gardening and being outside, taking care of her yard and flower beds.  Over the years, she enjoyed going camping with her family and taking care of loved ones.

Survivors include her husband, Donald Shultz, Peru; seven children, Tim “Dink” (Rebecca) Shultz, Kokomo; Porter “Porty” Shultz, Denver (special friend, Shari Ludlow, Kokomo); Crystal “Cristy” (Kevin) Hook, Alabama; Alisa “Lisa” Shultz, Nyona Lake (special friend, Brad Nutt, Mexico); Shelley (Troy) Stein, Chili; Kelly Shultz (Cassie Smith), Rochester; and Brandy (Kevin) Burns, Florida; many many grandchildren and great-grandchildren; two sisters, June Geyer, Colorado and Barb (John) Hoffman, Colorado; and two brothers, David Guinn, Union City, Indiana, and Larry (Becky) Guinn, Winchester, Indiana; in addition to several nieces, nephews and cousins.

She was preceded in death by her parents; one son, Troy Shultz; one brother, Jerry Guinn; infant sister, Randell Faye Guinn; and one great-granddaughter, Kenzie Shultz.

Public visitation will be from 1-7 p.m. on Friday, September 18, 2020, at McClain Funeral home, Denver, Indiana.

The funeral service will be on Saturday, September 19, 2020, at Deedsville Community Church, Deedsville, Indiana.
