Born Anna Petrie on her parents farm in the town of Mishicot, July 28, 1867, Mrs. Schimmel was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Petrie. She lived at home until her marriage to Michael Schimmel in 1894, when the couple settled on a farm in the town of Two Rivers. They have lived on the same farm ever since. Mr. Schimmel retired from active farming 17 years ago, at which time a son-in-law, Roland Meissner, took over the operation of the
farm with Mr. and Mrs. Schimmel continuing to make their home there. The Schimmels celebrated their golden wedding anniversary two years ago this past January.

Surviving, in addition to the husband, are a son, Allie, and a daughter, Mrs. Roland Meissner, both of route 2, Two Rivers. There are 10 grandchildren and one great grandchild.
Also surviving are a brother, John Petri of route 2, Two Rivers, and two sisters, Mrs. Katie Giefer of Two Rivers and Mrs. Joseph Steiner of Manitowoc.
