In loving memory ~
On May 29, 2023, Ingeborg "Inge" Theresia Schmidt passed away at the Regional Hospital in Saint John, New Brunswick. She was born on April 29, 1934, in Komotau, Czechoslovakia.
Ingeborg lived in Czechoslovakia until 1945, after which she lived in Germany until 1959. In the late forties and early fifties, she worked on a farm in Switzerland, and while there learned seamstressing. In the mid-fifties, she became a nurse in Germany and worked in a pediatric unit for five years. In 1959 she came to Canada to marry her husband Frank in Vancouver, British Columbia.
Inge lived in Vancouver until 1968 when she, her husband, and their three children moved to Courtenay, B.C. on Vancouver Island. She had two more children in the Comox Valley and lived there until 2000. From 2000 to 2006 Inge lived in Victoria, B.C. In late 2006 she and two of her sons moved to Saint John, New Brunswick, having purchased a house there. She had a very comfortable retirement. In 2022 Inge suffered a major stroke but recovered remarkably. But in April of this year, she had to be hospitalized for an illness from which she did not recover.
Ingeborg is survived by her sons Gery, Randy, and Mike, daughter Jenny, son-in-law Chris, grandchildren Isaiah and Maclean, and family and friends in both Canada and Europe. She was predeceased by her son Frank in 1986, and by her husband of forty years, Frank, in 2000.
