In 1955, they returned to Indiana to set up their home out in the country near Francesville, IN. Chuck took employment at the local feed mill where he worked for about 7 years. He then went to work at N.I.P.S.CO where he was employed as a lineman to a heavy equipment operator. He enjoyed running the large crane, but said it was really scary setting those large electric poles. In 1956, Chuck and Mary welcomed their second child, a son, into the world on January 18, 1956, Charles J Schultz. Known to all as C.J. A few years later they designed and built their new home in Medaryville, IN; fondly called 'the little green house on the hill'!! That home was a haven for numerous animals from cats, dogs, birds, a lamb and many calves and lots of great friends they had over the years living there. In 1963, their youngest daughter, Joleen Marie, was born and grew up in that sweet home.

Chuck and Mary stayed in Medaryville, IN being very active in the Medaryville Methodist church. Chuck was quite active in the local Mason's where he served in every position and ended up as the Worthy Patron.  In 1976, Chuck and Mary celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary by renewing their vows. All the children were in attendance and a part of the ceremony. At the end of the service, a fellow parishioner took them for a horse drawn carriage ride around Medaryville.

Chuck and Mary enjoyed camping and dancing. Almost every weekend they went dancing with two other couples who were long term friends. In 1999, Chuck and Mary packed up a few of their collected treasures and moved to Sun City, CA where they shared many great times getting together with and getting to know some really awesome friends and neighbors. They lived in Sun City till 2013 when Mary passed after a long hard battle with cancer. Chuck then moved into a retirement home and in 2017 he moved to Georgia so he would be closer to his eldest daughter. Chuck became friends with many great folks while he lived in the Buford area.
