Obituary of Emile Schmid

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Emile Schmid.  He passed away peacefully in the Welland Hospital on Monday, January 21, 2019 at the age of 72.

He is survived by his wife of 52 years Jenny, his children Cari (Doug) DeRoos, Rodney Schmid, Marcel (Janet) Schmid and Joyska (Randy) Tkachyk and his 8 grandchildren.

Emile came to Canada in 1965 and has served in various churches and ministries. His greatest passion was serving the Lord where he was called and whatever God asked him to do. His impact is widely felt and he will be greatly missed by all.

A special thank you to the staff at the Welland Dialysis Department for the excellent care he received over the last few years.
