Kay (Daugherty) Schmidt

Saturday, July 20, 2019

Kay (Daugherty) Schmidt, 83, of Glenshaw, Pennsylvania, passed at home with family on July 20, 2019, following a courageous battle with dementia and brain injury. She was born to Robert (Doc) Daugherty and Mildred (Staub) Daugherty on New Year’s Eve 1935. She married Albert J. Schmidt, her best friend, chief accomplice, and love of her life, on July 18, 1959. She is loved and missed by her sister and brother-in-law, Mitzie and Bill Lindner; her children, Robert (Kathy) Schmidt, Beth Schmidt, and Patty (Matt) Raymond; her grandchildren, John Borthwick, Stephen Russell, Alex Schmidt, and Hannah Kay Schmidt; and a troop of nieces and nephews. Kay was a retired secretary/office manager, an active volunteer, an avid puzzle solver, a remarkable wife and mother, and a reluctant housekeeper. Her absence will be felt in the neighborhood, at church, at the gym, at card club, at a variety of antique stores, at Denny’s, and at home. She will be remembered fondly forever by cousins, high school friends, the Scouts group, volleyball ladies, bowling friends, and bowling kids. She will be missed on holidays, especially St. Patrick’s Day, and every day of the week, especially Tuesdays.  Join us Wednesday, July 24 (1-3 p.m., 6-8 p.m.), at Bock Funeral Home, Glenshaw, and Thursday, July 25 (10:00 a.m.), for mass at St. Bonaventure Church, Glenshaw, followed by lunch in the social hall.
