On Nov. 18, 2021, Beverly G. (Melbo) Schmidt was reunited with her husband Arne Schmidt and daughters, Renae Nelson and Lori Williams.
In her 86 years, she touched many lives with her hugs, prayers, and love of cooking. No one ever
went home hungry when visiting Grandma Chick- en’s kitchen. Bev’s social- izing nature, good humor and feistiness touched many people over the years. She enjoyed playing cards, square dancing and entertaining during the holidays for her friends and family.

of Lino Lakes and Robert (Shelley) Schmidt of Harris; her nine grandchildren and 13 great grand- children; and son-in-law, David Williams. She was preceded in death by her daughters, Renee Nelson in 2002 and Lori Williams in 2021; husband, Arne in 2004; one sister; and three brothers.
