Marianna C. Schmidt


DUNBAR, Wis. — Marianna “Marie” C. Schmidt, 97, of Dunbar, passed away Thursday, April 12, 2018, at Florence Health Services.

She was born in Germany on Dec. 7, 1920; daughter of Josif and Rozalia Leptich. She came over to America at the age of 3 on a ship called President Roosevelt.

Marie had a few residents in the Dunbar area that were her special friends and helped her out.

She is survived by a few close neighbors: Zibby DP, Dave (Diana) Schultz, Darcy (Gary) Powell, and Dave (Janice) Reed.

She is preceded in death by her husband, Anton “Tony.”

Family and friends may call from 10 a.m. until the time of the funeral service at 11 a.m. Thursday, April 19, at Dunbar Community Bible Church. Pastor David Coats will officiate. Interment will be in Memorial Gardens Cemetery, Dunbar, at a later date.
