Homemaker and artist

November 09, 2006

Felice R. Schultz, a homemaker, artist and volunteer guide, died Monday of complications from a stroke at the Severna Park home of a granddaughter. She was 96.

She was born Felice Root on her family's farm in Wells, Minn. After it was destroyed by a tornado, she moved to St. Paul, Minn., where she graduated from high school.

In 1929, she moved to Washington, D.C., and two years later married Frederick Loomis Schultz Sr., an insurance salesman who later became vice president of Metropolitan Life. He died in 1971.

Mrs. Schultz formerly in Guilford and Cross Keys, and had resided in Severna Park since 1997. During the 1980s, she volunteered as an observation deck guide at Baltimore's World Trade Center, and her interest in art and archaeology led to trips to Europe, Asia, Africa and the Middle East, family members said.

She was also an artist who worked in oils, watercolors and charcoal.

Mrs. Schultz was a member of the Woman's Club of Roland Park, Baltimore Country Club and the Women's Civic League.

She was a former longtime communicant of the Episcopal Church of the Redeemer, and at age 89 converted to Roman Catholicism. She became a communicant of St. John the Evangelist Roman Catholic Church, 689 Ritchie Highway, Severna Park, where a Mass of Christian burial will be offered at 10 a.m. Saturday.

Surviving are two sons, Frederick Loomis Schultz Jr. of Takoma Park and Roger S. Schultz of Jasper, Ga.; a daughter, Emily S. McGeady of Severna Park; a brother, B. Preston Root of Morristown, N.J.; 13 grandchildren; and 40 great-grandchildren.
