Mrs. Catherine Schmidt, the venerable mother of Dr. A.A. Schmidt of this city passed away at Postville Hospital at 1:30 o'clock on Monday morning at the ripe old age of eighty-two years, her demise being due to the failties incident to age.

Deceased came to Postville some years ago from Richmond, Minn., and those who formed her acquaintance found her to be a most friendly and gracious lady, with a cheery greeting for all who chanced to come within the circle of her acquaintance.

Dr. Schmidt of this city was her only child and during her somewhat extended period of failing health she has been given every tender and thoughtful care that a dutiful son could give.

Deceased was a life long and devout member of the catholic church and died fortified by its rites. The funeral was held from St. Bridget's Catholic church in this city at 9 o'clock on Wednesday morning, Rev. P. Hogan officiating. Interment was made in the Catholic cemetery at Garnavillo.

~Postville Herald, Thursday, March 9, 1933

The biography of her son, Dr. A.A. Schmidt (Portrait and Biographical Record of Dubuque, Jones and Clayton Counties; 1894 - see on the Clayton co. IAGenWeb site), gives her maiden name as Schulte & her husband as Dr. Henry Schmidt.

The burial place in her obit (St. Joseph's Catholic cemetery) is in conflict with the cemetery given in Mr. O'Brien's sources. Researchers should independently verify the correct cemetery.
