Ellen Schmidt Obituary

It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Ellen Maureen Schmidt at 68 years old.
Ellen passed peacefully at the Chinook Regional Hospital in Lethbridge on November 6th , 2023.

Ellen believed in family first. Her family circle was large and not always blood related. She always said
it’s the people that want you, the ones that accept you for who you are, the ones who make you laugh
that are important in life. She loved hard and made sure her home was always full of love, laughter and

Ellen was the loudest mom and grandma at every game. She cheered her kids on fiercely in their lives,
on and off the stands. If she was in a room you knew it, not necessarily because you saw her but
because you would absolutely hear her coming. Ellen was a larger-than-life personality. She loved
cooking and baking, and she loved her garden. She loved every dog that ever crossed her path. She was
always excited to share her latest recipes and creations she made with her husband, Brian of 50 years. Her sense of
humor and quick wit will be missed forever.

Within the community she helped organize and host events, and always helped various organizations
with fundraising. She always told her daughters how proud she was of them, and never missed a chance
to talk about them or her grandkids to various people she met. Her smile, sense of caring, and heart
healing hugs will be missed forever.

Later in life Ellen developed a love for Quilting, a labour of love. Everyone in her life were benefactors of
her amazing display of colours and design.

Ellen is survived by her loving husband Brian, her children Brandy (Bryan), Kristen (Chad), Nicole
(Benjamin), and Mallorey, as well as her brother Richard (Kim), Ian (Denise), and Dean (Charlyn). Ellen also
left her treasured grandchildren Kerigan, Zackary, Brooklyn, Aiden, and Zoey.

Ellen is predeceased by her Mother Eileen, Father Cal, Sisters Georgina and Patricia (Keith), Sister-in-law
Gail (Dan) and her grandson Nicolas.
