Louisville - Joann Burnett Schmidt, 86, of Louisville passed away on Saturday, October 6, 2018.

Joann was born on February 8, 1932 in Cooper, TX. A proud Texan, she settled in Louisville where she raised a family and became a successful business entrepreneur. Joann owned the Hodgepodge, one of the early antique and furniture consignment stores located in St. Matthews. This venture would be the beginning of a life-long career as a personal property appraiser. She founded the Kentucky Chapter of the American Society of Appraisers, became the first female auctioneer in Kentucky and mentored many others who followed her. She also owned and operated Brick Oven Pizza in Plainview with her late husband, Fred K. Schmidt, Jr. Joann loved traveling, dancing and listening to classic country music.

She is preceded in death by her husband of 55 years Fred K. Schmidt , Jr.

Joann is survived by her children, Michael Coffman, Fred Schmidt III (Jeanette), Holly Schmidt (Dean) and a cherished granddaughter, Sylvia. Her family would like to extend their gratitude to those who cared for and were very special to Joann, including the wonderful staff at Magnolia Springs and Kelly Vaughn, dance instructor at Dance Louisville.

Guests are invited to attend a visitation from 12-3 pm and 5-8pm on Wednesday, October 10, 2018 at Arch L. Heady & Son at Westport Village, 7410 Westport Rd.
