Enny Deutschman Schulz ’40

December 23, 2021, in St. George, Utah, at the age of 103.

Enny was a Portland native who came to Reed as a “day-dodger.” She took part in weekend hikes facilitated by the college, including climbing Eliot Glacier on Mt. Hood, and particularly appreciated the humanities program. “To be sure,” she said, “the introduction of that program was too fast-paced, too overwhelming for a naïve freshman student. But since then, it has been a boon as a guide for stimulating reading material.”

She wrote her thesis, “Rousseau’s Contributions to Music,” advised by Prof. Cecilia Tenney [French and music 1921–63]. Enny’s objective was to be a teacher, and she ended up teaching high school in Oregon, first in Taft, and then in Gresham. She spent the last 17 years of her life in St. George, Utah.

At Reed, she met John Schulz ’39, who would become her husband, and they had two sons, John O. and Gerald, who survive her.
