Mae was born on April, 28, 1921, in Chanhassen Township, the daughter of Walter and Ida (Moldenhauer) Plocher. Mae was baptized and confirmed at St. Johns Lutheran Church in Chaska. On May 7, 1942, Mae was married to Floyd (Nushie) Schmid at St. Victoria Church.
Mae loved playing bridge and other card games, tending to her flowers, both at home and at her cabin outside of Nisswa, but most of all she loved harassing all the fish in Clark Lake! Maes most treasured memories were of family gatherings, the 25 trips she and Nushie took to the Big Island of Hawaii for the month of March and especially all the fun times at her Clark Lake cabin with friends and family. After raising her children, Mae worked for 27 years as a seamstress at John W. Hellers at Southdale.
