Mrs. Schmidt asked that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the Freedom House - a shelter for battered women in Parker County. PO Box 1626, Weatherford, Texas 76086 or call (817) 596-7543.
She was born in New York on Nov. 19, 1933, and moved to Weatherford 44 years ago with her husband, Angelo. She has resided on their family ranch ever since. She was a fiercely independent woman and was an immensely positive influence on her large circle of family and friends. In the early days of her time on the ranch in Weatherford, she helped her children become active in many activities including 4-H. She taught scores of children how to cook and simple home economics. Later she decided to attend classes at Weatherford College and began working at an H&R Block office in Fort Worth. She prepared taxes for a loyal list of client more than 30 years until age 79.
She was preceded in death by her husband.
Survivors include her children, Louise, Stephanie, Ronald, and Alan; siblings, Charles, Bernabe, Roland, and Tessie; eight grandchildren; and seven great-grandchildren.
