  • Mary Ruth Twellmann Shulse, born April 20, 1918, in a small, three-room farm house near Silex, Missouri, passed away in Lancaster, Calif., on April  12,  2013. She was nearly 95. She was in hospice care at her daughter’s home and was pain free and comfortable.
    Mary was a life-long educator who received a life membership in PTA in 1968. She was known as a great correspondent who loved to entertain.
    She travelled extensively after the 1974 death of her husband, Harold, eventually setting foot on every continent. She had a green thumb and gardened anywhere she lived. Her Christian ethic was an inspiration to all who knew her.
    Preceded in death by her husband and younger daughter, Beverly, she is survived by daughter Sandy, son John, grandchildren, Brian, Kristin, Marny, Dana, and Heidi, great-grandchildren, Ethan, Aubrey, Harry and Ellie, and numerous nieces, nephews, grandnieces and grandnephews.
