We are sad to announce the passing of Menno Schmidt at the age of 82 years in Vernon Hospice House, with his family by his side. He will be lovingly remembered by his wife Lorna of 57 years; and sadly missed by his three daughters, Marjorie Wood (Larry) Hauff, Joann (Terry) Gilmore and Carol (Tom) Gerling; all of Vernon. He will be fondly remembered by 8 grandchildren and 5 great-grandchildren, as well as extended family and friends. Menno was one of 12 children born to Abe and Emma Schmidt of Drake, Saskatchewan. Left to mourn his passing are 4 brothers and a sister. Menno worked as an electrician with the Department of Highways for thirty years, upon retirement Menno and Lorna enjoyed travelling, camping and fishing.
There will be no funeral by request. Memorial contributions in memory of Menno may be made to the North Okanagan Hospice House.
