Elaine Sharon Schmidt (Shuttleworth) passed away on Sunday, August 23, 2020, at 82 years of age. Elaine leaves to cherish her memory, her children, Sandra Joubert, Diana Meister, Deb (Rob) Schmidt and Christina (Cam) Filion. Elaine was predeceased by her husband Hubert Schmidt, her son Shane Schmidt and her son in law Steve Meister.

There will be a Graveside Memorial Service for Elaine at the Kindersley Cemetery on Saturday, August 29, 2020, at 1:00 p.m. with The Rev. Piotr Strzelecki officiating.

On September 23, 1937 Annie and Alvin Shuttleworth welcomed a beautiful baby girl, who they named Elaine. She grew up in the small hamlet of Isham Saskatchewan. For her final three years of high school she attended boarding school in Kindersley and then went on to Business College in Saskatoon.

After schooling, she moved to Edmonton, applying her organizational skills to her job with the Alberta Driver’s License Issuing agency. While living in Alberta, Elaine met Hubert Schmidt, and they married October 5, 1957. They returned to Saskatchewan, living in Smiley, Kerrobert, Cavell and D’Arcy, during which they raised their family – Sandra, Deborah, Diana, Christina and Shane.

Elaine remained living in D’Arcy after the death of her husband Bert, continuing to work at the local Elementary school as janitor, secretary, librarian and teacher’s aide. Upon her retirement she moved to Calgary in 2014, to be closer to family. Over the next years, dementia and breast cancer played an ever increasing role in the course of Elaine’s life resulting in her move into an assisted living complex.

In early 2020 Elaine was reunited with her oldest daughter Sandra and it was a wonderful week of eating and family get-togethers. Then COVID hit, the end of family visits at Elaine’s residence and a minor fall, resulting in a broken hip. Upon Elaine’s discharge from hospital, she went to live with Deb and Rob and her grandsons, Trey and Beck, where she enjoyed the loving care and company of her family and the antics of their puppy.
