Gainesville, FL - Carol Winegar Schmitt, age 69, passed away on Saturday October 25, 2008 at her home in Gainesville, Fl. She was born in Buffalo, NY on June 6, 1939 and moved to Gainesville in 1981. She met her husband, Pete, in Sunday school. They graduated from Amherst Central High School where they were sweethearts, and were married in 1962. Carol was a 1961 graduate of Buffalo State Teacher's College, but her teaching career actually began when, at age seven, she would gather up the neighborhood kids and teach class. She was a loving and devoted wife and mother, and a totally dedicated professional elementary school teacher of 45 years. She taught because she loved her students. She is survived by her husband Peter vH. Schmitt, son Thomas vH. Schmitt, and daughter Kathleen E. Schmitt of Gainesville, a brother Nelson F.
