Obituary

Kimberly Kay Schmidt, of Fort Myers Beach, Florida, passed away on September 6, 2020. She was 61 years old. Kimberly was born on March 7, 1959, in Indianapolis, Indiana, to Donald L. Schmidt and Patricia M. (Sullivan) Schmidt.

During her working life, she helped with running the family business, Overhead Door Company of Columbus Inc. She was a gymnast at Columbus North, a member of the Moose Lodge and had many wonderful friends at Bonita Bills.

Among many other things, Kimberly loved to go boating, swimming, skiing and especially loved to ride horses. She loved her horses, her dogs, Sullivan and Madison and her pot-bellied pig, Sir Diamond Bacon.

Kimberly loved her family, around which her universe revolved. She loved old friends and welcomed new ones. She always put her family above all other priorities, including taking care of her own self. She took great pride in caring for others which brought her joy.

She had conviction and confidence to spare. Her sense of humor was enough to make us all smile, no matter the circumstance and befriend those she may have barely known.

She also valued hard work, commitment and following ones dreams.

Her love was unconditional, as it was the fabric from which she fashioned her entire life.

Kimberly is survived by her parents, Donald and Patricia Schmidt of Columbus, Indiana and Ft. Myers Beach, Florida; son and daughter in law, Brandon and Carla Corya of Columbus, Indiana; son and daughter in law, Kip and Clare Corya of Mesa, Arizona; sister in law, Linda Schmidt of Columbus, Indiana; granddaughters, Adriana Corya of Columbus, Indiana, Myla, Taylor and Charlie Corya of Mesa, Arizona; and nephews, Griffin Schmidt of Los Angeles, California and Collin Schmidt of Columbus, Indiana.

She is preceded in death by her brother, Donald A. Schmidt, as well as her grandparents, John and Dot Jackson, Don and Bernice Schmidt, and Charles A. Sullivan (RIP).

No memorial services will be held at this time.

    I have known Kim since 6th grade. I lived in the same neighborhood, Riverview Acres in Columbus, In. Kim was a beautiful girl and so charming. She was confident and very stylish. Her parents were very warm and welcoming.
    When Kim had her 2 boys, I was their teacher at a Montessori school. She was a great mom.
    I was shocked to learn that she passed away. Her personality was one that could live forever. R.I.P. Kim, even though I have not seen you in a long time, I feel that we could have picked up where we left off many years ago. Much love to your family. My thoughts and prayers are with them.

    I have such happy memories of spending time with Kim in the 80’s. We were both young moms and our kids were in the same play group. She was beautiful, always smiling, fun loving - and a dedicated Mom. My heart goes out to her family and everyone who loved her!

    Ms. Kim,
    I have known you since I was born. I always heard my parents talk about how you made a whole dinner for the family when my Grandfather passed. You were such an amazing and beautiful woman. Gone too soon, but never forgotten. Love you!

    I knew Kim since about 8th grade, and though I haven’t seen Kim for many years, I will miss her just knowing that she was making this world a better place. A warm smile, a contagious personality, and an great sense of humor is what I will always remember. My prayers will be with the family and close friends of Kim.

    While I did not know Kim after High School since I left for the Navy 5 days after graduation, I always enjoyed her in class all through high school. Prayers go out to the family that you may be comforted.
