Schmitt, Marie H. (19 AUG 1928 - 15 AUG 2011)


Marie H. Schmitt, 82, of Marshfield died on Monday evening, Aug. 15, 2011, at her home with her family at her side. She was under the Ministry Home Hospice Care Program.

Memorial services will be at 3:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 20, 2011, at Rembs Funeral Home with the Rev. Ken A. Dix officiating.

Family will receive relatives and friends from 1:30 p.m. until time of the service Saturday at Rembs Funeral Home.

Marie was born on Aug. 19, 1928, in the town of Green Grove, Clark County to Walter and Helen (Konhorst) Hake. She attended and graduated from Colby High School. Upon graduation, she attended beauty culture school and was the owner and operator of Betty's Beauty Salon in Marshfield.

She married Robert G. Neumann. He preceded her in death.

In May of 1954, she married Carl J. Schmitt. They settled in rural Marshfield and raised their family.

Marie will always be remembered for her creative talents with a hook needle, thread or other medium of hand work. She would often comment that her favorite charity was the Marshfield Senior High School Madrigal Singers. She designed and created costumes for that group from its inception in 1965 until very recent years. 

In her final years, she took great pride in creating and hooking rugs which she shared with family and a few special friends.

Marie is survived by her husband, Carl; children, Wayne R. (Vera) Neumann of Westminster, Colo., Christine Cook of Sandusky, Ohio, Catherine "Katy" Schmitt of Menasha, Corrine "Cubby" (Lonnie) Rice of Hilliard, Ohio; and one grandson, Carl J. Harmon of Columbus, Ohio. She is further survived by a sister-in-law, Elsie Hake of Curtiss; and numerous nieces and nephews.

Besides her parents and first husband Robert, she was preceded in death by a brother, Roland Hake, and a sister, Ruth Boneske.
