     Delmore Lee Schmidt was born on 24 January 1929 at Gray Co. (probably), KS. He was the son of Samuel Peter Schmidt and Maybelle Messenger. Delmore Lee Schmidt married Betty Lou McFadden, daughter of Frank D. McFadden and Vivian A. Rundell, in 1948. Delmore Lee Schmidt died on 30 August 2010 at Alaska at age 81 Delmore (Del) Lee Schmidt died Aug. 30, 2010, at the age of 81. He was a Homer resident since 1984.

A Pioneers of Alaska service was held Sept. 3, 2010. Burial will be in the spring in Anchorage.

Born in Kansas on Jan. 24, 1929, Del met his wife Betty in high school. They married in 1948 after Del joined the Air Force. They were transferred to Elmendorf AFB in 1952 and fell in love with Alaska. After leaving military service, the family remained in the state, built four homes off Boniface Road and worked a family commercial fishing site out of North Kenai. Del experienced the 1953 Mt. Spurr eruption, Alaska statehood in 1959, the 1964 earthquake and the 1967 Fairbanks flood.

After retiring as a Civil Service logistics officer for the Air Force, Del relocated to the Homer area; he and Betty built a home on Bear Creek Road. Del was a member of the Elks Club, the Pioneers of Alaska and the Homer Garden Club. His garden and apple orchard were his pride and joy.

Del served as Pioneers of Alaska's Grand President in 1995 and was especially proud of his contribution to "In those Days," an important local history book about the pioneer families on the lower Kenai Peninsula.

After Betty's death, Del met Janie Myers and they were life companions for 15 years. Janie was steadfast in her support for Del and they married in 2009. In Del's last years his illness robbed him of much of his strength and stamina but he was recognized for always keeping his sense of humor in the face of great physical difficulties.

In addition to his three daughters, Linn Schmidt Seidel of Anchorage, Gayle Young of Sitka and Sonya Schmidt (now Artemis BonaDea) of Gustavus, five grandchildren and two great-grand children, Del is also survived by his wife, Janie Myers of Homer and Janie's daughter Dori and her children.

Del was dedicated to the Pioneers of Alaska organization and he asked that any memorial donations be made to the Pioneer's of Alaska's Sunshine Fund.
