Schultz named outstanding senior citizen

A lot of people have said a lot of nice things about Onda Schultz.

“Onda Schultz is one of the most remarkable people I have ever know,” said Carol Berg, chairman of God’s Storehouse in Wapakoneta. “She volunteers frequently at God’s Storehouse; she assists food clients in the grocery area at least two days a week and works in the thrift store…she also calls the volunteers and schedules each for a three-month period.”

“If we need pies or brownies for a funeral meal at the church, Onda is there,” said Jim and Diane Elshire of Wapakoneta. “If God’s Storehouse needs someone to stock shelves, wait on customers, or hang up clothing, Onda is there. If one of the newly widowed ladies is at church alone, Onda is there to sit with them.”

“In addition to her volunteer work, she is known for her beautiful personality,” said Gale Gebhart of Cridersville. “On days that might not be going quite right, she comes and bring her smile and encouraging words that make the day brighter. She is always able to bring grace and laughter into the most difficult circumstances.”

There are plenty of other nominations that praise...
