May 27, 1921 – August 18, 2020
I would like to thank the doctors, nurses and care aides that took care of Mom in her final days.
As one Doctor said, she is one very special tough lady. I also appreciate the kind help I received during that difficult time.
Though Mom had a lot of health issues she lived to 99 years of age and was a true testament of how tough those European farmers were.
Mom is the last of the direct line of her family, she was the 3rd of 8 brothers and sisters.
She is also pre-deceased by her husband Martin and sons Peter and Adam Schmidt.
Mom was born and married in former Yugoslavia during the outbreak of WW2. She outran the confusion, fear, and terror of the war. In 1950 she and her young family immigrated to Canada in search of a better life.
She is survived by her son Peters’ children, Jason and Bradley, great-grandchildren and great-greatgrandchildren; her son Adams’ child, Martin and great-grandchild; her daughter Rosemarie Girard, and her children, Marie, Kim and Jason, and great-grandchildren; daughter Katarina Hebold and her children, Wayne, Chris, Ira and even more great-grandchildren and a great-great-grandchild.
While mom was alive we were a 5 generation family, way to go mom.
Goodnight mom, and goodbye, you will be missed.
