Gloria Jean Schmidt, 79, of Mechanicsville, MD passed away on October 23, 2020 at Washington Hospital Center in Washington, DC.

Jean married her beloved husband, Lewis Arno Schmidt, Sr., on June 16, 1958 and together they spent 62 blissful years of marriage. They welcomed 4 beautiful children into their family, and eventually they blessed them with 7 grandchildren and 12 great grandchildren.
