Ed was born on the family farm on June 17, 1922, in Luxemburg, the son of Nicholas and Elizabeth (Friedman) Schieltz. He was educated at Holy Trinity School in Luxemburg. Ed married Alice Mae Lake on Nov. 16, 1948, at Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Luxemburg. Together they raised seven children on their farm north of Luxemburg. Ed spent his entire life in Luxemburg and was a life-long member of Holy Trinity Parish.

Ed spent his early years as a carpenter, but his life-long passion was farming. He farmed until his later years and remained involved with his sons’ and grandsons’ farms. Ed was active with the Clayton County Farm Bureau, Clayton County Extension Office, Holy Trinity Parish Council, RHCL and Leo High School Boards. He was very proud to be a Eucharistic Minister at Holy Trinity parish and was a long-time member of the church choir. Ed loved spending his early mornings “up town” at the 4-Way having orange juice and conversation, watching his beloved Chicago Cubs, cheering for Iowa sport teams and spending time with family and friends, especially the wonderful memories with his card club group. He was a loving and devoted husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather.
