April 30, 1925 – January 12, 2021

Mary Schmidt, aged 95 years, formerly of Drake, SK passed away at Central Parkland Lodge in Lanigan on Tuesday, January 12, 2021.

Maria Lillian (known as Mary Lillian) Schmidt was born April 30, 1925 on the family farm near Drake, SK to Zacharias and Emma Bartel.

She is survived by her son Barry Schmidt, grandson Steven (Marie) and great grandchildren Daniel, Allison and Matt of Watrous, SK, sister Emma Bartel, brother-in-law Art Driediger and many nieces and nephews who were very dear to her.

Mary was predeceased by her husband Bill Schmidt (2003), parents Zacharias and Emma Bartel and step mother Mary, brothers Herold (Lorena), Harvey (Linda), sisters Adeline (Bob Clardy), Elsie (Walden Neufeld), Luella (Menno Gerbrandt), Iris (Art Driediger), brother-in-law Orren Bartel (Emma), and by her nephew John Bartel.

At age eighteen she was baptized at North Star Mennonite Church at Drake, SK where she remained a faithful and active member all her life. As a child and youth she taught herself to play piano. This was an ongoing joy to her as she played piano for church and many other groups and continued on until age 95. She loved to visit and created a lot of joy around her. For many years in retirement, she and Bill hosted a coffee hour daily at their home which was open to one and all. Her sense of hospitality and warmth continued all her life, with her love for family, friends, and kind acceptance of anyone whose path she crossed. She will be lovingly remembered for this legacy of openhearted love and her joy of life.

A Private Family Funeral Service was held at North Star Mennonite Church, Drake, SK on Thursday, January 21, 2021 at 2:00 p.m. Interment in North Star Cemetery took place at noon. For online condolences or tributes please visit

So sorry for you and your families loss. Mary was such a sweet and caring person. My daughter Devyn and I along with our dog Lexi enjoyed our weekly visits with Mary at the lodge. We truly treasured our visits and Mary enjoyed watching Lexi preform the new tricks that she learned each week.

A note to Barry: We are sad to hear of your Mom's passing this week. She will be missed by you and everyone who knew and loved her. She was a great lady and was always up for a visit, share some stories and a few laughs. She is now in eternity and in the presence of the Lord and together with your Dad and many loved ones.
