We are sad to announce the passing of Agnes Schmidt. She passed away peacefully into the arms of her Lord who spared her the pain that is usually associated with her illness.
She will be deeply missed by Jacob, her husband of 64 plus years, children, Marilynne (Alan), Richard (Kathy), Darryl (Diane), and their families, as well as many siblings, nieces, nephews and friends.
Born in Winnipeg, Manitoba on August 13, 1937, Agnes was the sixth of nine children. She had a passion for gardening, hosting, making friends, and will be remembered for her great cooking, beautiful smile and contagious laugh. She was also an active volunteer for many church and community organizations, and truly made a difference in all areas she was involved with. Agnes was an amazing wife, mother, gramma, great-gramma and friend. She always had a story to share, was an active listener and had a deep sense of caring. She will be deeply missed.
The family would like to thank all those who've prayed for and supported us during this difficult time, along with the medical team at Riverview Medical Centre who provided exceptional care.
A Celebration of Life will be held on October 23, 2021 but due to new Covid restrictions, will only be open to double vaccinated immediate family.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to MCC Canada, 134 Plaza Drive, Winnipeg, Manitoba, R3T 5K9; a volunteer organization she cared deeply for. If donating online, please go directly to
