SCHMIDT, Edith Schmidt   - Our beloved mother Edith Schmidt née Panek passed away peacefully on April 9th 2021 at Lakeridge Health Oshawa at the age of 91. 

Edith was born on March 2, 1930 in Koeniginhof, Czechoslovakia where she lived until she was 15 years old.

Before settling in Canada in 1954, she lived in Germany for seven years. 

She leaves behind her children Sylvia (Steve), Monica (Frank) and Gary.

She was a loving grandmother to Alexander, Andrew (Vincent), Karina and Nicholas.  

She will be remembered as devoted mother, a humble, kind and elegant lady who never uttered an unkind word to anyone. She was an avid reader and was well informed about world events.

Our mother will be greatly missed but she is now reunited with our father. 

A private service will be held for Edith on Friday April 16th, 2021, in Whitby Ont. A burial will follow.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Alzheimer’s Society of Canada.
