Goldie Baum Schimdt
Goldie, a long-time STH fan and poster girl for many of our senior movement programs, passed away October 14 in Hollywood, Florida. She was laid to rest there next to her husband, Solomon Schmidt. Her daughter, Cissy Schmidt, and family were there with her during this peaceful passage.
Goldie believed in moving, all of her life, every day. She studied yoga and practiced water aerobics until the very end of her days. Although Goldie was a holocaust survivor, her horrific experience during the war never dampened her love and enthusiasm for life, art, nature and her family and friends. Goldie was an inspiration to us all and a joy to be around. In her honor, we have planted a grove of trees in her much loved Kentucky to help with the reforestation efforts there and that "she may continue to add beauty and love to our world."
