Schmitt, Arlene L. (Hoover) (30 OCT 1932 - 17 FEB 2013)

Arlene L. Schmitt, 80, of Gilman, went to heaven on Sunday, Feb. 17, 2013, at her home surrounded by her family, and under the care of Hope Hospice.

She was born on October 30, 1932 in Potlatch, ID, the daughter of the late Wesley and Helen (Morrow) Hoover. Her family moved to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan when she was a young girl.

On November 13, 1950, Arlene was united in marriage to Russell Schmitt in Ontonagon, MI. The couple moved to Gilman and has resided there since. Arlene and Russell raised nine children. She was active in her faith, was an avid gardener and a great cook. In her later years, she cooked for events at Dot and Jerry's. She enjoyed her family, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, sewing her quilts and helping with the maple syrup. No one ever left her house hungry or with a hole in their jeans.

She is survived by her husband of 62 years, Russell, of Gilman; her children, Dan (Gail) Schmitt of Gilman, Judy (Terry) Erdman of Ladysmith, Sally (Jay Keeler) Schmitt of Green Bay, Rita (Mark) Gasior of Jump River, Wayne (Adela) Schmitt of Gilman, Lillian (Peter) Zach of Jump River, Dean (Liz) Schmitt of Gilman, Robert (Carolyn) Schmitt of Gilman and Raymond (Teri) Schmitt of Gilman; 29 grandchildren; 18 great-grandchildren; her brothers, Wesley Earl (Shirley) Hoover of Silver City, MI., Bobby (Jan) Hoover of Mass City, MI. and Bill (MaryAnn) Hoover of Racine; her sisters, Elsie Corey of Hancock, MI, and Betty (Joe) Golding of Louisville, KY.; and many nieces, nephews and cousins.

She is preceded in death by her parents and a sister, Dorothy Larson.

Funeral services will be held at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 24 at the Gilman High School gymnasium. Burial will follow in the Meadowbrook Cemetery. Visitation will be from 4 until 8 p.m. on Saturday, and from noon until time of service on Sunday, all at the Gilman High School gym. The Gilman Funeral Home assisted the family with arrangements.
