Audrey Schmidt's passing
Please join me in expressing our sincere sympathy and condolences to Gerald Schmidt and family on the passing of his wife Audrey at Toronto General Hospital, Sunday, September 16th. Audrey had been suffering from Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis and was on the waiting list for a lung transplant for quite some time. Unfortunately donor lungs did not become available in time to save Audrey's life. I got to know Audrey and her husband Jerry (Gerald) and they both kept their hopes alive with a positive outlook to the very end.
Audrey is resting at the Gilbert MacIntyre & Son Funeral Home (Hart Chapel), 1099 Gordon Street, Guelph where the family will receive friends on Wednesday, September 19 from 2-4 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. A funeral mass will take place at St. Joseph's Church, 409 Paisly Road, Guelph, on Thursday, September 20, 2007 at 10 a.m.
As expressions of sympathy, donations by cash or cheque to the Lung Transplant Program at Toronto General Hospital would be appreciated by the family (cards available at the funeral home 519-821-5077) or send condolences on line at Gilbert & MacIntyre & Son where you can also find the official obituary notice and directions.
