M. Schmidt

It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Maurice Schmidt, formerly of Trochu, just short of his 85th birthday. He is survived by his wife of 61 years Donna and his three children Theresa (Dan), Susan and Robert (Lisa). Also survived by his seven grandchildren Danny, Bonnie, John, Darren, Heather, Brieanne and Josh. Survived by his brother Roger(Leita) and his sisters Carol(Dave)and Linda(Bob). Also survived by bothers- in-law George(Cheryl), Jim(Theresa) and sisters-in-law Carol and Joan along with many nieces, nephews and cousins.

While in Trochu he worked at K & F Motors, drove school bus and had a cream route. He was a member of the Trochu Community Band and Trochu Volunteer Fire Department. In his free time he loved to go fishing with his father-in-law. At the end of 1969 Maurice and Donna relocated to Calgary where Maurice enjoyed a very successful 45 year career in real estate. He and Donna also had a Property Management Company which Donna carried on until the end of 2019. In 1994 he discovered the joy of travelling around Canada and the USA by RV. He and Donna were members of WIT and Alberta Wild Rose travel clubs where so many long lasting friendships were made. We also thank Bow-Crest Care Centre for all they did for Maurice. At this time no services planned. Arrangements in care of Calgary Cremation Service (Leyden’s Funeral Home).
