    Notes 
    • Carol M. Schmidt, "Tweet", age 76, passed away Saturday, August 23. 2003, surrounded by the presence of those she loved.
      Tweet was born on June 10, 1927. She was united in marriage on September 22, 1948, to Ray Schmidt. They were together for almost 55 years. Ray has always said they have had a very, very good life together, enjoying their wonderful family and friends.
      Carol is survived by her husband, Ray; two daughters: Jane (Joe) Kaufman, Kaukauna; Julie (Dan) Bongers, Little Chute; and two sons: Albert (Shirley) Schmidt, Kaukauna; and Wallie (Amy) Schmidt, Arlington, Virginia. She is also survived by grandchildren: Paul (Jaime) Kaufman, Appleton; John and Carol Kaufman, Kaukauna; Jackie Bongers, Chicago; Michael and Greg Bongers, Little Chute; Maria and Christopher Schmidt, Kaukauna; and Charlie and Sam Schmidt, Arlington, Virginia; and two great-grandchildren: Claire and Marie Kaufman, Appleton. She is further survived by two sisters, Phyllis Nelson and Marian Van Groll; a brother-in-law, Mike Verhagen; sisters-in-law, Margaret and Maggie Zornow; Ray's family: Art (Glady) Schmidt, Helen Lenz, Mary Ann Austin, Eleanor (Marv) Hietpas, Marge (Ed) Mentzer, Bill (Barbara) Schmidt, Florence (Mike) McKenna; and many nieces and nephews. She is also survived by special friends, Audrey and Marv Huss; and a special niece, Kathy
      Kennedy, who donated her kidney, a life-saving gift, to Carol in 1989.
      She was preceded in death by three children at birth: Mary, James, and John. She was also preceded in death by her parents, Walter and Dory (Jansen) Zornow, Little Chute; her father-in-law and mother-in-law, Albert and Margaret (Wanke) Schmidt; a sister, June Verhagen; brothers, Jack and Bill Zornow; and brothers-in-law, Ignatius Lenz and Frank Austin.
      Tweet and Gladys Schmidt shared the accounting responsibilities for Schmidt Oil Company for the first 14 years. Tweet and Marian were very instrumental in starting the Riverview Nursing Home Auxiliary. Tweet was the Girl Scout Cookie chairman for the City of Kaukauna for many years. She was also a very active volunteer at St. AI's. Together with Ray, she co-chaired the parish picnic and the school pizza sale for many years. She was a member at Fox Valley Golf Club. She enjoyed sewing, knitting, baking, cards, bingo, puzzles, and especially telling jokes. Tweet and Ray have been very supportive of the Maxie Fund for the research of juvenile diabetes. Research of juvenile diabetes remains a primary concern for the Schmidt family and all who loved Tweet. She was an insulin dependent diabetic for 53
      years.
      A special thanks to Tweet's sister, Marian, who spent thirty years of Thursdays eating, drinking, and talking smart with Tweet at the Lox Club, while Ray was practicing for his hole-in-one. The family would like to thank St. Elizabeths Hospital for the special care and concern given by the nursing staff and Drs. Misty Johnson and John Butitta.
      A memorial is being established in Carol's name.
