Today is…Lillie Katherine Schuetz Adam’s Brithday

Grandpa, Grandma and me

Today is my Grandma’s birthday!

Grandma said she always looked forward to her birthday because it was the only day she was allowed to sleep late. The bad part was she always woke up early.

Lillie Katherine Schuetz was born 8 September 1895 in a cedar log house in Kendalia, Texas. Her parents were Henry and Emma Bauer Schuetz. She had two brothers, Alec and Harry. As a young adult, she loved to go dancing and would go to dances with her younger brother Harry. They would go on horseback, horse and buggy or by car. One time they were headed to a dance in Kendalia when a spinning wheel zipped past the car. They thought that was so funny until they realized it was from their car! She met Willie Adam at one of those dances.

She married, my grandfather, Willie Adam on 16 March 1919, in San Antonio. Returning from their honeymoon in San Antonio they stopped by Willie’s parent’s house and received a special treat to welcome them home, homemade peach ice cream! They settled on a farm down the road from Willie’s parents.

I loved to go to her house for Sunday Kaffeeklatsch. She made the best raisin spice cake. I wish I had the recipe. She made cutout cookies that she kept in an owl cookie jar. You couldn’t eat just one cookie. They were lip smacking good! Now, all I can think about are the dishes she prepared, homemade noodles, fig preserves, homemade bread, homemade pickles. My mouth is watering…

Happy birthday, Grandma!
