Obituary of Theresa Schmidt
Theresa Schmidt, 90, passed away Sunday, April 16, 2023 in Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick, NJ.
Born in Jersey City to the late John and Tillie Guzy, Theresa grew up in Linden graduating from Linden High School. She went on to enjoy working for Nabisco, Exxon and the USGA. She shared a residence in Bridgewater, NJ and Frye Island, Maine and loved traveling with “her guy” Albert, who predeceased her in March of 2016.
Theresa enjoyed spending her summers in Maine, watching the sunsets, listening to loons, her noodle, boating and swimming to the kissing rock. She especially looked forward to hosting her friends and family and making their trips special. She enjoyed fun times with island concerts, lobster dinners and s'mores by the fire.
Theresa also had a deep faith and was a member of the Millington Baptist Church in Basking Ridge. She was a generous and giving lady and a mother to many children. Mother's Day was her special day! She had an exceptional ear for listening to others' stories and loved helping friends and family. She also enjoyed ice cream, playing the piano, dance fitness classes, completing puzzles, playing cards as well as visiting the Jersey shore.
She will be remembered for her enjoyment of the simple life, impeccable dress, incredible deviled eggs and the kindness she shared to all she met. She truly enjoyed seeing everyone else happy!
