Nature 25

Jennifer Susan Schmidt

November 30, 1977 ~ May 25, 2023 (age 45) 45 Years Old


It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Jennifer Schmidt at St. Boniface Hospital on May 25, 2023 after a brave battle with cancer.   

Jennifer will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by her mother Louise, brother Aaron, sister Krista, aunts Eunice Skanderberg, Gladys and Anne Schmidt, uncle Kenny (Mary) Flatt as well as well as numerous cousins, friends and neighbours and of course her fur baby Jersey. 

She is predeceased by her father Norman, grandparents Adam and Evelyn Flatt and Jack and Caroline Schmidt. 

Jennifer was born on November 30, 1977 in Gladstone, Manitoba.   She was baptized and confirmed at Zion Lutheran Church in Plumas, Manitoba.  After graduating from WMCI in June 1995, she worked for local businesses (Courts Greenhouse, Saan Store and the Plumas Solo Store) before moving to Winnipeg. In Winnipeg, she attended Herzing College where she received her diploma as a Legal Assistant.   Upon graduation she secured employment with Thompson Dorfman Sweatman and later moved to Meyers LLP where she spent the next 20 years, resigning in December 2022 due to her failing health.

Jennifer had a warm, kind personality and touched many lives.  She was always very caring and thoughtful and held a strong faith.  She found great joy in the simple things in life.  She had many different talents that required a lot of patience and she took great care in any project she took on.  She completed many different cross stitch pieces which she gifted to family and friends.  She loved to bake and decorate cakes.  At Christmas time, her freezer would be full of goodies she made that she would gift to her colleagues, friends and family.  She loved to garden and spend time working in her flower beds or doing reno projects on her house. 

A Funeral Service will be held at Zion Lutheran Church, Plumas, MB on Friday, June 2 at 1:00pm.  Internment following at the Plumas Cemetery.  If so desired, donations may be made in her memory to the Zion Lutheran Memorial Fund, Box 278, Plumas MB  R0J 1P0 or to CancerCare Manitoba Foundation, 1160-675 McDermot Avenue, Winnipeg, MB  R3E 0V9.

The family would like to thank Pastor James Vosper for his care and concern for Jennifer during her illness, the doctors and nurses at CancerCare (HSC and Grace Hospital), the palliative care department at the St. Boniface Hospital and Clarke’s Funeral Home for handling the arrangements. 

Lunch will be served at the Plumas Community Hall after the internment.

Friends and family have shared their relationship to show their support.
