Mildred Davis "Mitzi" Schmidt, 94 of Honey Brook, PA, passed into the loving arms of her Savior, Jesus Christ, on Monday July 12, 2021 at Tel Hai Retirement Community in Honey Brook.
She was the wife of the late Owen B. Schmidt Jr. (“Jutes”).
Born June 20, 1927 in Bryn Mawr, PA she was the daughter of the late John M. Davis and the late Amanda Purring Davis.
Mitzi grew up in Narberth, PA and graduated from Lower Merion High School in 1945. She spent the majority of her life in West Chester, PA.
High school sweethearts, Mitzi and Jutes were married in 1946 while Jutes was on a one-week leave from the Army Air Corps. During their 60 years of marriage (before Jutes went to be with Jesus in 2006), they saved their pennies and were able to enjoy trips to many states and several National Parks across the U.S. One of their favorite places was Lake Wallenpaupack in the Poconos.
Over her lifetime, the job she loved the most was caring for her family. Before and after raising her two sons, Mitzi worked as a Bookkeeper at G.E., I.B.M., Shipley School, as well as an accountant assistant at a CPA firm in West Chester.
Mitzi was a Charter Member of Willistown United Methodist Church, where she served on numerous committees.
She enjoyed golf, bowling, baseball, reading, handiwork, and, most importantly, her family.
Mitzi is survived by her sons, Gary Schmidt (Lois) and John Schmidt (Mary Alice), her 3 grandchildren - Suzanne Blair (J.W.), Allison Wallenhurst (Baron), and Stephen Schmidt (Jorie), as well as 9 great-grandchildren – Megan, Ava, Xan, Wes, Nick, Baron, Guy, Henry, and Tatum. She is also survived by her step-sister Nancy Crawford, nieces Janet Bernard, Barbara Brake, Carole Verngren and their families.
She was preceded in death by her sister, Elizabeth “Betty-Rae” Bennett, and her step-brother, Jack Davis.
