Obituary

Claudia Lee Rodgers Schulz, 63, of Dothan, Alabama, is at peace, and finally made whole through Christ on July 30, 2020. She and her family embraced the belief that the only way to experience true peace, love and satisfaction in our lives is to know and have a relationship with Jesus Christ.
Claudia, was born October 26, 1956 in Austin, Texas. She grew up in Austin, and moved to Kingwood with her family her senior year. She studied art at Southwest Texas State University in San Marcos, Texas where she met and fell in love with Ed. Claudia, while dating, was instrumental in bringing her own loving husband, Ed, to the Lord. They married at the end of her freshman year. She was a beautiful and loving wife to Ed Schulz, and mother to two precious children, Ethan and Becca. She was also mother in law to Becca’s husband, Ben Begley of Scappoose, Oregon, and affectionate grandmother “Lee Lee” to Barnabas, Abe & Fionn Begley. She also practiced for many years as a transcriptionist with several firms and practices.
Outside of her main calling as a mother and housewife, Claudia was a marvelous artist and musician and home veterinarian to several beloved pets. She left all of us with a greater appreciation for God’s creation, and a taste of His brilliant creativity in and through her work. When Claudia came into the room, the party came with her. Her smile, charm and loving heart enriched every life she touched.
Despite Claudia’s many health problems, she would want others to know that Jesus was the most important person in her life and that Jesus bore her sins, and provided each human being a way to live forever with Him.
She was preceded in death by her little sister, Dorothy Nell Belew in 1998, and her father, Wayne R Rodgers in 2016, whom she sorely missed and dearly loved. Claudia is also survived by her mother, Rebecca Joan Rodgers of Kingwood, Texas, her brother, Gordon Wyatt Rodgers of Ft. Worth, Texas, her sister Becky Sue Rodgers Stephens of Spring, Texas, mother in law, Joan Schulz of Deatsville, Alabama, and brother and sister in law, David and Linda Schulz and Jonathan their son, from Prattville, Alabama.
There will be no funeral services due to the Covid Epidemic, but there may be a memorial service in Texas later in the year. Our hope is that you would be encouraged by Claudia’s life to pass her love and the spark she added to life onto others who are in need right now.

(continuation of Kelley McClintock's previous post...accidentally hit the "Post Now" option)
believe that Jesus was the only way to God. Claudia, tired and needing a few hours of sleep, handed me her Bible and told me to read chapter 14 of the gospel of John. Then, at about 2 a.m., she gently kicked me out of her room. I sat in the dorm hallway outside of her room for several more hours, reading, telling God how offensive and narrow He was, then finally uttering a very angry yet honest prayer, "God, I don't like that Jesus says He's THE way, THE truth, and THE life, but I guess if You and He are really God, maybe You can make the rules. But, You're going to have to show me. Amen."
Because Claudia loved Jesus and spoke for Him, my life was transformed, and I entered into a relationship with my Creator. Claudia and I made more memories as she and Ed allowed me to be the third wheel during our freshmen year activities. I was privileged to attend their wedding on August 23, 1975, and to have Claudia as my matron of honor in my wedding on August 20, 1977. Even though far away from each other over the past four decades, every time we reconnected it was never awkward. I cherish the last time we saw each other face to face at Claudia's parents' home back in 1999 or 2000. It was a real joy to hug Ed, Claudia, Becca, and Ethan, and to get to visit with Wayne, Becky, Becky Sue and Matthew, and several of Dottie's children as well. It was a preview of what heaven will be like, and I do long for such a reunion. In the meantime, my continued prayers go out for all who love Claudia and whose hearts are sore without her. My love to Ed, Becca, Ethan, Becky Rodgers, and Becky Stephens especially.

One of the first memories I have of Claudia is how tall, lovely and poised I thought she was, and what a classy sense of style she had. It was the fall of 1973 and we were both new to Humble High School; she was transplanted from Austin, TX, and I from Alief, TX; not an easy thing for young women in their senior year. We had several classes together; Claudia introduced herself to me as being a "newbie," too, and our friendship began. Not long afterward, when hanging out one day, Claudia shared that she had been praying for a friend, and that she believed I was an answer to her prayers. I felt shocked. My parents had relocated our family from Alief to Kingwood in order to separate me from my drug-using crowd. I'd expressed a desire to quit using drugs, and they believed a complete change of environment would help. I told Claudia about my background and how very non-Christian I was. She said that wasn't a problem and set about explaining the true meaning of being a Christ follower. Not only did Claudia teach me biblical truth while challenging my pagan belief system, but she lived out her faith before me. Claudia's strong convictions combined with her vibrant personality destroyed the caricatures I'd formed of Christians being boring. I began reconsidering the spiritual understanding I'd come to by way of researching and participating in the occult, Hatha yoga and transcendental meditation. I desired to know more about this God that Claudia seemed to know, and began reading the Bible she and another friend, Nancy, had gifted me with. As a result of our good friendship as seniors, Claudia influenced me to attend the college she'd been accepted to: formerly Southwest Texas State University, now known as Texas State University at San Marcos.
As we went off to college, my only regret was that I'd been accepted late and couldn't be Claudia's roommate. However, she and I would spend hours in her dorm room having deep spiritual discussions. Late one October night, I pinpointed the reason I couldn't become a Christian; having studied many other religions, I couldn't

Ed, It is with heavy heart that I saw the loss of your wife. On the same day five years ago I lost my Lucy to the Lord. I feel your loss and my prayers are with you my brother. May she RIP. God bless you and the family.

I am so saddened to hear of Claudia's passing. She was my neighbor in Texas during high-school. We lost touch but she recently found me on FB. I'm sad our rekindled friendship was so short. My condolences to the family.
