Nadene M. Schultz, 88, of Clarkston, Wash., a former Baker City resident, died May 12, 2009, at her home of stomach cancer.

At her request, there will be no service.

She was born on July 5, 1920, at Enterprise to Oscar and Myrtle Poulson Davis.

She married Joe A. Dunn in 1939, they divorced, and she then married Herb Hanson in 1946. They were divorced several years later.

She then married Russell “Dutch” Schultz and was married to him until his death in April 2001. The couple celebrated 50 years of marriage.

In her many years in business, she operated a tavern at Enterprise and a nightclub in Baker City. She was a homemaker at Halfway and also a member of the Order of Eastern Star.

During her time as an owner and operator of many businesses, from a restaurant at Diamond Spring, Calif., to a motel at Newport, Wash., Nadene made many friends and acquaintances throughout the Northwest. She will be missed by many, her family said.

Survivors include her children, Jerry and Wanda Dunn of Mattawa, Wash., Robert and Sandra Schultz of Clarkston, Wash., and Marlene Partei of Reno, Nev. She had five grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Russell L. Schultz.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorial contributions to Lewis-Clark Animal Shelter, 6 Shelter Road, Lewiston, ID 83501.
