MARJORIE ALLEN SCHULZ
Long time resident Mrs. Marjorie Allen Schulz, 100, passed away peacefully in her sleep on March 6, 2011. Marjorie, or Marge as she was known to her many friends, was born to Birdie C. and J. Howard Amason on April 20, 1910, in Thorndale, Texas. She spent her early years in Austin, but later moved to Roswell with her family, where she attended Roswell Senior High School.
At age 16, Marjorie returned to Austin to attend the University of Texas, graduating with a degree in psychology. It was at the University of Texas where she met first husband, J. R. Potsy Allen. They wed in 1930 and raised three children. They remained happily married until his death in 1974.
In 1982, Marge married Col. Robert H. Schulz of Roswell. Whether at home in Roswell or on one of their many worldwide adventures, Marge and Bob were constant companions, and she embraced his children as her own. Married 28 years, Bob was by her side until her death.
With a life-long devotion to healthy eating and living, Marge stayed active late into her 90's and kept up her daily walking regimen until late in her life. Known among family members and others for speaking her mind, Marge often left no doubts as to where she stood on any particular issue. A former Bluebonnet Belle at the University of Texas, she was also a life time member of Roswell's First Christian Church; a founding member of the Phi Beta Phi Alumni Club; a charter, founding member (with first husband Potsy) of the Roswell Country Club; a charter, life member, and past President of the Morning Garden Club; President and Treasurer of the Roswell Reading Club; President of the Shakespeare Club; President of the Roswell Garden Club; a former member of the Service League of Chavez County; and an avid duplicate bridge player.
Marge is survived by her husband, Col. Robert H. Schulz, son Howard A. Allen of San Diego, grandsons J.R. Allen of Houston and Todd Allen of Austin, great-granddaughters Mackenzie and Shelby Allen, and her husband's children, Robert Schulz, Dutch Schulz and Douglas Schulz, all of Colorado. She was preceded in death by her eldest son, J. R. "Potsy" Allen Jr., her daughter Ann Allen Ray, and her granddaughter, Adria Allen. Marjorie leaves behind a wealth of friends and family who love her.
A memorial service will be held at Roswell's First Christian Church at 2 p.m. on Saturday, March 12th, with an offsite reception to follow. A graveside service for family will be held on a later date at the Amason-Allen family plot at the Oakwood Cemetery in Austin. Memorials, in lieu of flowers, may be made to the charity of one's choice.
