Nola Kremer Schmidt was born June 14, 1923, to John and Sarah Yeackley and went to her heavenly home on Monday, August 31, 2020, at Memorial Hospital in Seward, Nebraska at the age of 97. 

They lived on the family farm southwest of Milford where she attended Country School District #47.  Her parents both loved to sing, and their singing was one of their favorite past times. Nola learned and loved to sing at an early age with the assistance of Aunt Eva.  At the age of 16, Nola lost her mother and her family was forced to carry on without her.  Nola was united in marriage to Archie Kremer and to this union two sons were born, Darrel and Jerry.  Together they lived on the family farm and later moved 3 miles south where Nola was a farm wife and homemaker.  She was also employed as a seamstress with Formfit Company in Crete for a few years. 

Archie passed away in 1987, and Nola continued to live on the farm until her second marriage to Rudy Schmidt.  Nola and Rudy resided in Goessel, KS and were married for 16 years before his death in 2010.  She moved back to Nebraska to be closer to her family in Milford and most recently resided in Seward.  She was a life-long charter member of the Beth El Community Church, and enjoyed sewing, quilting, baking and being active in her church.  Nola also volunteered at the Et-Cetera Store, both in Goessel and Seward. 

Survivors include her son and daughter-in-law, Jerry and Marcy Kremer, of Seward; five grandchildren and spouses; Darrel’s children, Sean (Stacy) and Nicole (Shaun) Kremer; and Jerry’s children, Wendy  Kremer, Amy (Kris) Schulz, Kelly (Shawn) Stutzman, 8 great-grandchildren, Cole, Cameryn and Raeleigh Kremer, Colby and Austin VanDerslice, Hadyn Schulz, Grant and Carter Stutzman, numerous nieces, nephews and a host of other relatives and friends. 

Nola was preceded in death by her parents, husbands, Archie in 1987, Rudy in 2010, her son, Darrel in 1999, brothers, Melvin and Joe Yeackley, and a sister, Erma Burkey.
