Ralph T. Schmidt
Ralph Theodore Schmidt, 88, entered his heavenly home on Thursday, January 11, 2018 in Oconomowoc, WI. He was born in Watertown, WI on August 13, 1929 to Theodore and Elsie (Bruegger) Schmidt.
Ralph is survived by his best friend and loving wife of 64 years, Mary Lou (Haseleu); sons Ralph (Tracy) and Jeff (Ellen); sister, Lucille Huber, six grandchildren, ten great-grandchildren (two more on the way); nieces, nephews and other loving relatives.
He was preceded in death by his daughter, Annemarie, and his parents, Theodore and Elsie.
Ralph worked 34 years for State Farm Insurance, most recently as a claims adjuster. Upon retirement his main hobbies were wood working, delivering for Meals on Wheels (always brightening people's day) and helping his sons and their families with their various "projects". Family and friends were his life, willing to help anyone at anytime with, of course, a laugh and smile. Ralph was also a long time member at St. Matthew's Lutheran Church in Oconomowoc, where he served his Lord as Chairman of the Congregation and on other boards and committees, including most recently the finance committee and as an usher.
Ralph's ability to laugh and talk will be remembered by all.
Visitation will be held from 2:00 p.m. until the time of the church service at 5:00 p.m. on Sunday, January 14th at St. Matthew's Lutheran Church in Oconomowoc, WI (818 W Wisconsin Ave.). Light dinner and fellowship to follow service.
Memorials can be donated to St. Matthew's Lutheran Church - Forward in Faith, WELS Missions or the View at Pine Ridge in Oconomowoc.
