Can't help you with Alma & Paul Rutz but - I am a volunteer family researcher at historic Forest Home Cemetery in Milwaukee. Three years ago a person requested information on another Rutz and was just wondering if that would fit in your line. He wanted to know about a William, an Ernestine. a child also named William plus a still born baby. Others with that surname buried at the cemetery are: ARNOLD O., ELSIE H. JULIUS F., MARTHA J., ARTHUR L., LINA, PAULINE, CLARA, ERNESTINA, LORRETTA, ROBERT, ELSA, GOTTLIEB, MRS. LYDIA A. & THEODOR. If any of these fit in, please feel free to contact me at my personal e-mail address.
I also read a lot regarding Milwaukee history. I find only an unnamed Rutz in the 3rd volume of William George Bruce's series and in Jerome A. Watrous mentions an Augusta who married an August Mueller in his 2nd of 2 volumes.

"seeking family ancestors of Alma REINECK who married Paul RUTZ in 1903."

Did Alma die in May 1934? There is an obit. in Milwaukee's German newspapers for an Alma Rutz. There are about 60 Reineck and 70 Rutz entries or references found in the local resource: "Milwaukee's German Newspapers; an index of death notices and related items" (1844-1950).
