Gaylene Yvonne Schmidt



It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Gaylene Yvonne Schmidt, who departed from our lives on Sunday, July 9, 2023, at the age of 85. Gaylene was a resident of Milestone/Lang and is survived by her twin brother Gaylord (Donna) Lautenslager, as well as several nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her husband Joseph Schmidt, infant grandson Kristopher Eric, parents Peter and Elsie Lautenslager, sister Lila (Harry) Panasuik, and in-laws Amelia (Norman) Yoner, Grace (Andrew) Marcia, and Mary Schmidt.

Born on August 13, 1937, Gaylene spent her early years on a farm in Lang, SK. In 1944, the family moved south of Weyburn before returning to Lang in 1951. On April 6, 1956, she married the love of her life, Joe Schmidt. Gaylene dedicated her life to being a farm wife, loving mother, and doting grandmother. Family was of utmost importance to her, and she always cherished moments with loved ones and eagerly listened to their stories. Additionally, Gaylene had a deep passion for her garden, yard, and the friendships she cultivated throughout the years.

In 2012, Gaylene transitioned from the farm and settled into Carrington Court in Milestone. There, she found joy in visiting others and enthusiastically participated in community activities. A service to honor Gaylene’s life will be held at Lang Hall in Lang, SK on Monday, July 17, 2023, at 11:00 a.m. She will be laid to rest at Regina Memorial Gardens in Regina, SK. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Stars Air Ambulance. To share an online condolence, please visit wwww.speersfuneralchapel.com.
