Jan. 16, 1926 — Aug. 23, 2014

Naomi Ruth Schmidt (nee Volland) passed away peacefully on Saturday, August 23, 2014, at age 88.

She was the beloved wife of the late Carl for 62 years; dear mother of Grant Schmidt, Carolyn (John) Danek, Greg Schmidt and Joanie (the late Terry) Edwards; cherished grandmother of Joshua (Mel) Edwards, Jessica (Gabe) Edwards, Katie (Joe) Susler, Jeff Danek and Scott Danek; and great-grandmother of Isabella Edwards, Aaron Susler and Harper Rae Edwards. She is further survived by a sister, Dorothy Bauer, and sister-in-law Genevieve Volland.

Naomi was preceded in death by a grandson Dustin Grant Schmidt and son-inlaw Terry Edwards.
