Obituary for Francine Schmidt

Francine Schmidt
Of Arlington Heights

Francine Schmidt age 57, of Arlington Heights passed away peacefully February 9th in the loving arms of her daughters Gabriella and Samantha, surrounded by her adoring family, after a long courageous battle with ALS.

Fran, a devoted and proud mother and grandmother, loved spending time with family. Her determination to live, unwavering faith in god, the love, prayers and tremendous support of family and countless friends helped support and carry her through her days.

Throughout Fran's own struggles she graciously reached out to others who were also afflicted, to provide strength, and brighten their days. Fran encouraged people to live each day to the fullest. She participated in 3 walks, attended support groups, and participated in several research studies, all in hopes of helping to find a cure.
She lived life joyfully, often putting others needs before her own. Her beautiful spirit truly inspired everyone around her. If you met Fran once, you knew you had a friend for life. Fran was a true fighter and carried out her final days with tremendous courage, beauty, grace and strength.

Fran is preceded in death by her loving grandparents Gabriel and Minnie (Amico) Amore, whose loving arms welcomed her.
Fran is survived by her parents Frank and Ann (Amore) Udell, Daughters Gabriella (Tony), and Samantha Schmidt. Grandchildren Arianna, Gianna, and Dominic. Her partner for over 13 years John Antoni, Sisters Nancy Harris, Annette Udell and Jackie (PJ) Kelly. Nieces Holly Lippold, Haleigh Hunger and Toni Kelly, nephews Nicholas Harris, Joseph Kelly and great nephew Wyatt Harris. Her Uncle Frank and Auntie Sandy Amore along with numerous cousin.

She will be dearly missed by all those who knew and loved her. Fran's spirit shall live on in all of us. We can take comfort knowing she is our angel watching over us.
