August 2021 Posted in Uncategorized

Maureen Schmidt, 78, passed away July 26, 2021 surrounded by her family in Silverton, Oregon. She was born in Hartington, Nebraska in 1942.

Maureen met and fell in love with Bob Schmidt at the young age of 16 in Mount Angel, Oregon. They married on June 1, 1963. The couple raised their two children, Jeff Schmidt and Rachel Schmidt Long, in Silverton, and they continued to live in the same home, surrounded by their beautiful flower gardens for the last 46 years.

Maureen’s home has been host to many large family reunions and countless holidays where her grandchildren, Jake Schmidt, Zoë Schmidt Noe, Brendan Long, Meghan Long and recently her great granddaughter Penelope Noe will always remember ‘Grandma’ welcoming them with a smile as they drove in and spoiling them with endless love and pride. They will also always remember her famous chocolate chip cookies and spicy pickles.

Maureen was a hairdresser for over 50 years. She loved gardening, walking every morning and she loved caring for her Sophie Dog. But most of all she loved her family.

Maureen will also be missed by her siblings, Mick Fischer, Annette Brier, Randy Fischer and MaryKay Bielemeier; her daughter-in-law, April Schmidt; her son-in-law Scott Long; and countless other relatives. Maureen is predeceased by her parents, Rose and
Edgar Fischer.

A Celebration of Life will be held on Sunday, Aug. 22, 2021 at 1 p.m. at the Mt. Angel Event Center, 210 Monroe St., Mount Angel, Oregon.
