Florence Nightingale May Schulmeister

Florence Nightingale May Schulmeister

May 12, 1931 – March 13, 2014

It is with great sadness that we had to say goodbye to an amazing Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother, Sister, Sister-in Law, Aunt, Cousin and Friend.

Florence was born in Edmonton, Alberta in 1931 where she lived until she was six. From there she moved to the lower mainland in BC. In 1956 Florence moved up north to Kitimat, where she met the love of her life Leo Schulmeister.

(Florence was predeceased by her husband Jacob Leopold Schulmeister.)

Florence spent the remaining years of her life up north, eventually moving to Terrace where she and Leo raised their seven children.

She was an active member of the Happy Gang Centre for many years and enjoyed working in the kitchen, singing in the glee club, playing cards and creating memories with great friends.

She leaves behind to cherish her memory her brother Jock (Margaret), her sister Joyce and her brother-in-law Brian. Her seven children, Christopher, Richard, Stephen, Joyce (Roland), Paul (Rhonda), Thomas (Pat), David (Rae). Her grandchildren Scott, Tanis (Steve), Samantha, Kirby, Miranda, and Ryan. Her great grandchildren Tanner, Brooklyn, Kody, Leo, Cooper, and Stryker. And her many nieces and nephews and great nieces and great nephews.

Florence was predeceased by her brother Noel (Doreen) and her sister Bea, her brother-in-law Paul, her daughter-in-law Rachel and her granddaughter Roberta.

Our family would like to thank the staff at McConnell Estates, Northern Health Home and Community Care, and the Mills Memorial Hospital for their support and care in the recent months.

In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the Terrace Street Cat Rescue.

Always in our thoughts and forever in our hearts.

You will be missed.
