Gifts & Memorial Donations

Miriam “Mimi” Schrandt, 89, of Williamsburg, went to be with the Lord on February 13, 2020.  Mimi is preceded in death by her husband, Myron J Schrandt; her parents, Reinhold and Martha Fechner; and brother, Robert Fechner.  Mimi loved and served her Lord and Savior and was a member of the Williamsburg Community Chapel.  Her greatest joy was spending time with her family.  She was a passionate traveler, and although she loved seeing new places, her favorite place was Hawaii.  Mimi played both the organ and piano, sang in the choir at church, loved to quilt and enjoyed knitting and sewing, she was a true lover of the arts.  Mimi is survived by her son, Steven James (Cindi) Schrandt; daughter, Diana Lynn (Bill) Issler; grandchildren, Jenifer Habershaw, Jonathan Issler, David Issler, and Laura Issler; and great grandchildren, Kyle Issler, and Zachary Issler.  A service will be held to celebrate her life on February 29, 2020, 11:00 am at Williamsburg Community Chapel.  In lieu of flowers, the family ask that donations be made to the Hospice House and Support Care of Williamsburg.

    I have such fond memories of Miriam. She was a kind, talented woman who always saw the good in people. I have missed seeing her every Sunday at church, but I truly look forward to singing in heaven with her at the keyboard again. My love and prayers go out to all who loved Mimi.

    Aunts have no wands or wings, So they work with wisdom, love, and things. Having taken on this role, You loved me right down to my soul. You offered kindness And greetings with a hug and kiss, Each freely out of love which I will miss. I chose a twinkling star in the sky at night , To say a prayer for you to it’s bright light. You’re in God’s Heavens now and no longer in pain, In my thoughts, you’ll always remain How lucky I was, How blessed I’ve been, You were more than my Aunt, You were also my friend. I love you and miss you Aunt Mimi

    Mimi was my very first piano teacher in Hemet, CA. I still have many books with her handwriting in them. I am now 36, married, two children and one on the way. I graduated with a Master of Music in Opera performance and now teach at the collegiate level. Mimi was a big part of my journey! She was so lovely and talented - a gift from God! Sending love to her family.
