Edward “Buzz” Schelm, the son of Edward F. and Arlene (Roach) Schelm, was born on August 28, 1939, in Mapleton, Iowa.

Buzz lived his entire life near Ute, Iowa. He graduated from Ute High School with the class of 1958 and after graduation continued farming with his father Edward. In 1959, Buzz enlisted into the Army National Guard and served his country until 1965.

The couple made their home on the family farm located between Ute and Mapleton and were blessed with three sons: Bruce, Brett, and Brian. Buzz could always be found around Ute and Mapleton spending time with his friends.

Buzz was actively serving on the St. Clair Township Cemetery Board of Ute. His favorite past times included spending time with family and friends at a bonfire with good food and a cold beer. He was a family man who treasured every moment with his wife, sons and their families.

Survivors include his wife of 59 years Anita Schelm of Mapleton, IA, two sons Brett (Sheryl) Schelm of Climbing Hill, IA and Brian (Terri) Schelm of Hornick, IA; two granddaughters Shayna Schelm and Cali Schelm; two grandsons Michael (Leticia) Schelm and Nicholas (Renèe) Schelm; as well as many other extended family members and numerous dear friends.
