"Dear Dear Nina,"
I have been far away from computers and other such "connecting" stuff.
I weep with this news of Your Mortal Passing. I am currently stuck on not believing this truth.
I must quickly go and easily retrieve all the living good times You shared in our Friendship."

"My dear big sister, the one I became closest to, I will miss you sooo much.  I will miss - your wise council, your love and support, your "ear" and being a fantastic listener, a woman of few words but each word meant something special, your companionship, you always being there when I needed you, the special birthday get to gather's you always had for me, the many stories and pictures you shared with me of your life, for always being the one to take care or our mother, of having and raising four fantastic boys and one special girl, your respect of mother earth, your spiritual guidance, and your "Mona Lisa" smile.  I could go on.  Suffice it to say I will miss your presence here on earth terribly.  I do know that I will be reunited with you in the light of the universe when my time is at end here."

"My earliest childhood memory of Aunt Nina was a family trip out "West" when they lived in Colorado.  My cousin Brett, who would end up being one of my closest buddies growing up, gave me a first hand tour of the west.  I remember climbing on the "Mountain" (small rock on their land), riding horses, riding motorbikes, eating deer chili and playing with the animals.  We will miss you, Aunt Nina.  May her soul rest in peace and may God reward her for her care of Grama Gigi."

"I remember you cousin when we were children. We had lots of family get togethers on the holidays and loved Grammy Bert and Grammy Gula.  Spending the night at the Schultze's house was a highlight. In 1964 we were in each other's wedding.  A few years later toddlers Nick, Peter, Shannon and Brad had lots of fun when we all got together at my moms house.  As people began moving away we lost touch but still have the memories.  I know you are missed by many.  Love, Carol"

"My Aunt Nina lived life to fullest, and always on her own terms.  Her children, my cousins are testaments to her loving nature.  She loved the outdoors, horses, dogs and the beauty of the world.  Her memory will live in all those she touched in her life.  She was a great lady."

"Nina, (my friend Lynn); I am so saddened to learn of your passing.  I know that you are with our Lord and you will be soon riding in the wind.  We have so many years I guess I would say almost 40 years.  We always had such a great time together, getting in trouble, dancing, living the life.  You were always a free spirit and as I write I see you talking to me.  Remember when you and Shannon lived upstairs at my house in Rock Island for awhile and the kids would run up and down that hallway!!  Oh and I was so glad I got to see Brett & Shannon for a motorcyle ride and our visit at Shannon home.  Love you and your sweet memory will be with me forever.  Linda"

"Born the middle child of five ....and a loving mother of five, a grandmother, long term caretaker, lover of animals and my sister.  A cowgirl from the git go, with a gypsy spirit always ready for an adventure.  A life lived fully, sadly cut short.  You will be missed by so many."

This tribute was added by Dawn Dellos on 10th September 2016

"So much life packed into a too short life.  Many memories of your early love of horses and your fearlessness in dealing with them.  It seemed you put that fearlessness to work throughout your life...many adventures, many friends, many projects, but then there was the caring piece of you who loved her children fiercely, then cherished each grandchild, then became a devoted and loving caretaker to Jo, then to our mom.  That took a special loving strength.  I'm so sorry your life was cut short, sis.  Thankful you passed peacefully in the arms of your family.  Love you dearly and your memory will live on in my heart."

This tribute was added by Karen Karlixsmith on 10th September 2016

"Being the youngest (Karlix) child of the youngest Schultze (Ellen), I have minimal memories of Nina but loved & enjoyed my cousin, especially when she asked me to babysit for Shannon & Brent in my early teen years. Rest in peace dear Nina! My condolences to the family.
With love, Karen"
