Posted in Spring Valley Obituaries



Funeral services for Louis Schmidt were held 10:30 a.m. Thursday, January 22, 2015 at Faith United Methodist Church in Spring Valley, Minn. Burial will take place in the Spring Valley Cemetery. Visitation was held 5 - 7 p.m. Wednesday, January 21, 2015 at the Hindt Funeral Home in Spring Valley, Minn. and one hour prior to the service at church.

Louis Schmidt, age 94, of Spring Valley, Minn. passed away Sunday, January 18, 2015 at the Spring Valley Care Center.

WWII US Army Veteran, Louis K. Schmidt died in his sleep Sunday morning, January 18 at Spring Valley Senior Living Center. A Fourth Armored Division hero with many medals, including the Bronze Star for Valor, he raised his children with a strong sense of patriotism and love for the United States of America.

A highlight of his life was his Freedom Flight to Washington D.C., where he toured America’s sacred sites; sites secure today because of his service to our country. Very involved in his community, including the VFW club, his church, Faith United Methodist and his political party, The Democratic Farmer Labor party, Louie was admired and loved by many. Among the politicians he enthusiastically supported were Hubert Humphrey and Andy Anderson.

A mechanic his entire life, he was employed by Earl “Hoot” Gibson and Carlisle Challgren at the Spring Valley Oldsmobile garage. He was a Big Cat and Uke mechanic at the Babbitt Taconite mines. He was an airplane mechanic at Gopher Aviation in Rochester and retired as a supervisor of mechanics at FMC Northern Ordinance in Fridley, Minn.

After spending retirement years on Lake Mary in Howard Lake, Minn., he and Lenora returned to Lenora’s home, Spring Valley, wintering many years in Tucson, Ariz. During his stay at Spring Valley Senior Living Center, he daily warmly greeted residents, nursing staff and other employees, as well as neighbors who came to visit.

He was born April 8, 1920 in Bon Homme County, S.D. to Caroline Schultz and Adolph Schmidt. Moving to Spring Valley when he was 20, he worked for Bert Bly helping to crush rock at the quarry and saw logs on the Fillmore County 1 property. There, he fell for the pretty youngest daughter of Bert, Lenora Anne, and they were married November 30, 1943. She passed away August 9, 2013, after almost 70 years of marriage.
