Obituary Overview

Priscilla Earle Schmid

Schmid (Sewell), Priscilla “Gran”, of Dartmouth

It is with great sadness that the family of Priscilla Alison Earle Schmid, known to most as Gran, passed away peacefully on December 26th 2020 at the age of 86. She spent her final days surrounded and loved by her family.
Priscilla was born June 15, 1934 in Montreal, Quebec, a daughter of the late Stephen and Alison Sewell, High school sweetheart of the late Peter Schmid. Beloved mother of Wendy Kerr (Rob), Michael Schmid, and Susan Mills.
Priscilla spent many cherished years with her family on Lac Brule, Quebec where she grew up. In 1972, Peter and her family settled in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. For 40 years, prior to her retirement, she was an early childhood educator, working alongside her daughter Wendy at A Child's Place Daycare. Priscilla touched the hearts of many children who walked through their doors, and to this day still call her Gran.
 She had many passions in life; gardening, knitting, reading, crossword puzzles and spending summers at the family cottage in LaBelle with her grandchildren Brad, Pat (Paula), Sarah (Mike), Jenny (Gavin), Nick (Nicole), Maggie (Rickey), Becky (Jeremy), Peter (Mary). Her greatest joy later in life was her three great grandchildren in Ontario; Willow, Mya, and Gunnar. She is also survived by her sister Gerry Whitley and brother Stephen Sewell, and many nieces and nephews.
She was predeceased by her great grandson Rory; her sister Margaret, and brother David.
Cremation has taken place. There will be a small service planned at a later date. Gran's family would like to thank the nurses on 3 West at Dartmouth General Hospital for their compassionate care and support.
