On Saturday, December 26, 2020, Debra K Schmidt entered her eternal home with Jesus at age 66. Debbie was born to Keith and Martha Hooper on November 9, 1954, in Los Angeles, CA. Debbie met Greg Schmidt and they were married at the Candlelight Chapel in Vegas on June 14, 1980. They raised their two children, Bryan and Amanda, at their home in Glendora, CA. Greg and Debbie retired and moved to Henderson, NV. Despite years of health issues and chronic pain, Debbie held an unwavering faith in God and was a source of encouragement to many others. Although she is gone from this earth, her legacy of compassion and grace will live on with those who knew and loved her. Debbie was preceded in death by her father, Keith, her mother, Martha, and sister, Diane. She is survived by her husband Greg Schmidt, her two children Bryan (Angie) Schmidt and Amanda (Jesse) Martin, her four grandchildren Wesley, Molly, and Austin Martin and Maggie Schmidt, and brother Michael Hooper. Due to the pandemic, a celebration of life service will be scheduled at a future date for family and friends.

I was so blessed to have met Debbie in high school and left with so many memories of our adventures & shenanigans together with our great friends. We remained best friends, sisters of the heart, and became part of each other’s families. Debbie was always there for me through thick and thin, and I couldn’t have asked for a better friend. I loved my sister dearly and will miss her here on earth. But Debbie will remain forever in my heart until I see her again. And in the meantime, Greg, Bryan, Amanda and their families will all be part of my family. Love to you all,

Debbie was such an amazing friend. We served together on many Bandland committees and spent many nights chatting late, solving the world's problems! I will miss her terribly!

Debbie was the nicest most generous person to anyone. It was always so uplifting to see the joy in love for her grandkids. Her endless work in Glendora school system was one of her trademarks. My heart goes out to her family at this most difficult time. ❤

Love you Ma, not a day goes by I don’t think of you. Thank you for all the family trips you took me on and the slumber parties that kept you up all night. I can still hear your laugh and your voice calling out for “Manda Bear.” Most of all thank you for my best friend. I love you.

I’ve been in touch with Debbie over the years and was so sad to hear of her passing. Family and Friends are in my prayers. We were both Williams Warriors.❤

Momma Schmidt,

We love you so so much. Your kind heart and welcoming spirit were a respite for me in times of confusion and turmoil in my life. Your unwavering sweetness and unconditional love for all of God’s kids is a shining example of how we should all live and love. I will miss talking hockey with you so so very much. I love you.

You will truly be missed my dearest friend! I’m so glad we reconnected recently to share our joy of our grand babies and pride over our children. Always remember your beautiful face that was filled with such compassion for everyone! Blessings to all

I met Debbie our junior year of high school. She had recently moved to Azusa and we welcomed her into our circle of friends. She had a beautiful voice and was Mama Paroo in our school’s production of The Music Man. She was always kind, generous, and loving to so many people through her friendships, her children’s friends and the many places she volunteered. She was tremendously proud of her children, Bryan and Amanda, and her four grandchildren brought her so much joy and happiness. She and Greg loved their beautiful home in Henderson and seeing their grandchildren as often as possible. She will be truly missed.
