On May 4th, 2022, Arminda “Mimi” Schmidt (Domdoma), loving wife, mother, sister, and friend, passed away unexpectedly at 54. She was born on July 5th, 1967 in Manila, Philippines, daughter of the late Eduardo Domdoma Sr. and Teresita (Ochoa) Barreto. Mimi married Andrew Schmidt on May 8, 1993.
Mimi grew up in San Andres, Manila, and studied at Saint Anthony School and Letran University. Mimi moved to California in 1986 to create a better life for her family. She met Andy while living in California, eventually moving to Wisconsin, before finally settling in Georgia in 1992.
Mimi had a passion for animals and crafts. She was a loyal, avid fan of the Green Bay Packers. She was known for her quick wit, her ability to make anyone in a room a friend, and her drive. Mimi was well-known for her cooking, throwing annual BBQ and Christmas parties, that many of those who knew her looked forward to.
She began working at AT&T in 1987 and worked until her retirement in 2021. In her nearly 34 years, she became a Senior Project Manager overseeing many important projects. She made hundreds of friends throughout her years at AT&T.
