Ellen Claire Schulze passed away unexpectedly Wednesday, November 22, 2023 in Kingsland, Texas, at the age of 29. She was born June 23, 1994 in Memphis, Tennessee to Karl Burnett Deiker and Theresa Mary Rybaski Woodward. Elly moved to the hill country of central Texas as a baby and made her home in Kingsland with her parents, later moving to Burnet as an adult.
Ellen was a beautiful person inside and out. Her smile was so stunning it would light up the whole room. She cared deeply for the people around her, and definitely knew how to show it. She was kind and compassionate and made an impact on many people's lives, particularly as she served as a nursing assistant; and was learning to work with neuro-diverse children.
Despite being quiet and petite, she was strong-willed and stubborn. She had an enormous heart, wonderful sense of humor, and cared deeply for the world around her. Ellen was generous, loyal, clever and championed the underdogs of the world. She was full to the brim with laughter and worked hard to make the best out of what life threw her way. Ellen was fearless and independent, yet very sensitive. She sometimes struggled with her own self-worth despite the many friends and family members whom she influenced and who loved her very much. Throughout her life, Ellen was referred to as a caring daughter, a beautiful wife, a loving mother and a dear friend.
Ellen is survived by her husband, Christopher Carl Schulze and their daughters, Maya Ellen (age 4) and Shiloh Rose (age 8); as well as her mother, Terry Woodward, and father Karl Dieker. She is also survived by her parents-in-law Clarence and Genea Lynn Schulze, and countless friends and relatives.
She is preceded in death by her grandmother, Ellen Margaret Rybaski, whom she deeply cherished and loved beyond measure.
She will forever be remembered and loved.
A graveside service will be held Wednesday, November 29, 2023 at Pebble Mound Cemetery on
