Life Legacy

Constance M. "Connie" Schmidt passed peacefully from this life at 2:15 am October 4, 2011 at Colonial Assisted Living and Rehabilitation Center, Vincennes, Indiana, with loved ones at her bedside.

Connie was born January 15, 1922 in Olney, Illinois to Clementine L. Greathouse and William T. Robards. Later on, she knew the love of a wonderful step-father, A.C. McDowell of West Salem, Illinois. She was an only child.

On November 23, 1947, Connie was united in marriage to Claude E. Schmidt and they made their permanent home in Palestine, Illinois. Being a child during the "Great Depression" Connie moved frequently and attended a different school almost every year. This developed in her a great inner strength and independence of spirit. Connie loved animals and was an avid reader. She found politics fascinating and greatly enjoyed the :Mash" television program. She loved to travel and her suitcase was always packed. She was a kind, sweet, generous woman and a Mother Extraordinaire.

Connie is survived by a daughter, Melissa and her three beloved cats, "Little Mom", "Miss Thing", and "Scamp". She was preceded in death by her parents and her husband.

The last 20 months of her life, Connie was tremendously blessed by the kindness and compassion of Dennis Kordes, Jodie Wiest, Bonnie Adams, Mary Ann Lukens, Martha Norris, the excellent staff at Colonial and Vista Care Hospice. Her wish to be cremated will be honored and no formal funeral service is planned. Pulliam Funeral Home in Robinson, Illinois is in charge of the arrangements. Interment of Cremated Remains will be in the Oak Grove Cemetery at a later date.
