Loving and cherished wife of 65 wonderful years to William Schmidt.

Predeceased by her beloved son Robert, her parents Frank and Lydia, 5 brothers Bill, Martin, Edward, Ernie, Vic and 2 sisters Kay and Ellen.
Clara was a loving wife and mother, a long time member of Holy Cross Lutheran Church, an avid gardener and the best pie maker around. She was immensely proud of her sons and grandchildren and a devoted wife. In her many years of living in Elmira she enjoyed working at the down town bank as a bank teller and at the local donut shop serving coffee in the early morning hours where she made many friends among the police force in town.
The family is most grateful to all the caregivers at Winston Park long term care home for their dedication and the wonderful care given to Clara during her stay there.
