Floreen Peters Schulze, was born September 29, 1938 in Kuykendall Community of Washington County to Albert Louis and Annie (Dreyer) Peters. She was baptized and confirmed at Immanuel Lutheran of Wiedeville. On February 26, 1956, she married Herbert C. Schulze, Jr. also at Immanuel Lutheran Church of Wiedeville. Herbert and Floreen lived a short time in Houston but later settled in the Phillipsburg area to raise their four children. Shortly after, they became members of St. James Lutheran Church in New Wehdem where Floreen remained a member.

Floreen committed tireless hours over the course of 30 years to Blue Bell Creameries. She was dedicated to her craft and to serving her community through her marvelous work. She was always willing to lend a helping hand in any way possible. Floreen was the embodiment of tenacity and perseverance within the workplace, community, and her home.

Floreen loved her family and was especially proud of her grandchildren and great- grandchildren. She loved watching the Houston Astros and visiting with her family. Floreen was an excellent cook and was known for her exceptional sweet tea and dill pickles. She was a light in the room, and she always shared a contagious laugh. She was a beacon of hope during the hardships and made everyone feel like they always had a place in her heart and her home. She and her sisters were always quick to get together and would spend hours laughing at the old times they spent together.
