Harriett (Kuhn) Schmid Obituary

Harriett Marie (Kuhn) Schmid, 80, of Shelbyville, passed away Monday March 4, 2024 at Morristown Manor.

  She was born March 18, 1943 in Shelbyville, IN. to Emil Kuhn and Caroline (Wissing) Kuhn.

Harriett graduated from Manilla High School in 1961.  She retired as an accountant after many years of being in that field of work.  Harriett was a member of Zion Evangelical Church of Christ, Indiana World China Painting Association, Indiana Porcelain Art Teachers (IPAT), Porcelain Firing Squad, as well as, Bartholomew County Porcelain Artist Guild.  She had a love for China painting and she enjoyed teaching classes for the painting.  Some would say she was an expert due to her being taught by world renowned artists.  Harriett also loved to cook and she enjoyed the fishing trips up to the U.P. in Michigan.  Playing with her grandkids was a passion of hers.  She loved the times when the family was together and spending time with each other. 

She married Dick Schmid on July 23, 1965 and he survives. They spent 58 wonderful years of marriage together.

Harriett is also survived by  her daughter, Kara (husband, David) Bogemann; her son, Kevin (wife, Amy) Schmid; her daughter, Kelli (husband, Jerry)  Burnett; her grandchildren, Keegan Bogemann, Wyatt Bogemann, Katelyn (husband, Joel) Clapp, Taylor (husband, Michael) Cleveland, Ali Polston (significant other, Alex Hankins), Bailey (husband, Alex) Schnur, Madison Burnett (significant other, Jacob Broaddus); her great-grandchildren, Evelynn Cleveland, Emery Clapp;  her nephew, Pete (wife, Barb) Kuhn and her beloved Border Collie, Macki.

  She was preceded in death by her parents.
