Obituary for Maxine June (Schmidt) Hulick

Maxine June (Schmidt) Hulick, 86, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, October 30, 2019. She leaves three daughters, Terry Fogle, Sharon Hulick, and Cathy Hulick; son-in-law, Dean Teasdale; two granddaughters, Kate Fogle and Rhiannon Hulick; grandson, Chris Klarmann; brothers and sisters-in-law, Mel and Jackie Schmidt and Loren and Penny Schmidt; and many wonderful nieces, nephews, and friends. She was preceded in death by her parents; sister, LaVina Hensley; beloved husband, Bob Hulick; son and daughter-in-law, David and Carol Hulick; and granddaughter, Michelle.

Maxine was born in Isabel, South Dakota and moved to Coeur d’Alene with her parents, Otto and Frieda (Klein) Schmidt, when she was two years old. She was a 1951 graduate of Coeur d’ Alene High School, a 1953 graduate of North Idaho College, and a 1987 graduate of Lewis Clark State College (she fulfilled a lifelong ambition to get her bachelor’s degree). She married Bob Hulick in 1955 at Trinity Lutheran Church and they celebrated 57 years together.

While Bob was stationed with the Air Force, the couple lived in Palmdale, California and started their family. In 1965, they decided to move home to Coeur d’Alene and traveled north in a U-Haul truck towing a 1963 Rambler station wagon, with four kids and a beagle named Fritz. They spent their first year back in the north living in the Schmidt Apartments in Spirit Lake, Idaho, before Bob was hired as a postal clerk at the Coeur d’Alene Post Office. The family settled in at 809 Coeur d’Alene Avenue and Maxine resided there for over 50 years.

Maxine had a long career with the Bureau of Land Management in Coeur d’Alene and then retired in 1994 to spend time with Bob, traveling and visiting with friends and family. The two of them were known for their walking treks throughout the neighborhood, the downtown, and around the lake.

Maxine will always be remembered as a pillar of kindness, acceptance, and love. Her adoration of family knew no bounds. She accepted everyone with open arms and never passed judgment. She often quoted her father who said, “Maxie, treat everyone as you would want to be treated.” She was an amazing mother and grandmother who attended every band concert, sporting event, and school function for four children and her grandchildren. She believed in helping others and donated to many causes that were dear to her heart. Her passing leaves behind many broken hearts.

If flowers grow in heaven,
Lord, then pick a bunch for me.
Then place them in my mother’s arms
and tell her they’re from me.
Tell her that I love and miss her
and when she turns to smile,
place a kiss upon her cheek
and hold her for a while.

At her request, no service will be held, but memorials may be made in Maxine’s memory to the Hospice of North Idaho Schneidmiller Hospice House, 2290 W. Prairie Avenue, Coeur d’Alene, Idaho 83815,
