Schatzie was a dedicated wife, mother and grandmother. She cherished her family and led a full and wondrous life. Sam and Schatzie married when she was 17 years old and Sam was a young 25 year old Lt. in the Army. The Army allowed them the opportunity to live and explore many different places such as Greece, Spain, Italy, Iowa, Alabama, Oklahoma and finally settling in Sam’s home town of San Antonio. Schatzie’s love for Sam never wavered and when he wanted to fulfill his dream of ranch life after military retirement, she was ready for one last move. This time to their final home of the Double Bar J Ranch in Kingsbury. There they continued to grow their love, children, grandchildren, Hereford cows and Springer Spaniel dogs. There she lived out her life in peace and contentment for almost 43 years.
