Mary Rose Schmidt, age 93, of Maple Glen, died Saturday, May 14,2016 at her home. She was born in Manchester, N.H., to Jose and Clutilde Santos. A faithful member of St. Alphosus Church in Maple Glen, Mary found God and Pope Paul to be influential in her life. She found great joy playing Bridge with her husband. They had huge Bridge parties at their home with multiple tables of other passionate bridge players. Mary was also an "expert" at word jumbles and did not need the large print version. As "head cheerleader" for her children and then her grandchildren Mary attended every sporting event she could, regardless of any inclement weather. She was a volunteer for many years at Abington Memorial Hospital as well as the hospital's June Fete which she helped organize. Mary was also a former member of the Old York Road Country Club and the Colony Club of Ambler. She will always be remembered as a loving, caring, thoughtful, giving and humble mother, sister, aunt and grandmother. Preceded in death by her husband, Raymond E. Schmidt, three brothers; Joe, Mac and Tony Santos, she is survived by her loving sons; Bruce E. Schmidt, of Maple Glen, Bobby (Alison) Schmidt, of Gorham, ME., her dear sister, Dolly (Robert) Stewart, of Manchester, N.H, brothers; George Santos, of Manchester, N.H., and Jim (Kay) Santos, of Goffstown, N.H. and four cherished grandchildren; Ian (Tracy), Mark, Zach, and Andrew Schmidt.
