Sarah B. Shultz, 97, of Boiling Springs, passed away on Wednesday, December 28, 2011, at Sarah A. Todd Memorial Home, Carlisle. She was born on Monday, May 4, 1914, in Boiling Springs, a daughter of the late Jacob B. and Nellie (Beltzhoover) Meixel and the widow of Lawrence M. Shultz, who died May 24, 1994.

Sarah was a 1932 graduate of Boiling Springs High School and was a devoted wife and mother.

 Sara was the roommate of my mother-in-law Maxie Casey at Sarah Todd Home. She seemed like a lovely woman, and by the care and concern and attention her family gave her in those years at the Home, Sarah must have been a thoughtful and loving mother and grandmother. My mother-in-law will miss Sarah greatly, and I wanted the family to know that.
