Lainey Jo Rose Schmitt was born on Friday, November 10, 2017, at 8:59 pm at the Mother Baby Center at United and Children’s Minnesota in St. Paul, MN. She weighed 14.4 ounces and was 12 inches long. Lainey’s family was blessed with almost two hours with her, before she went to her heavenly home. Lainey experienced cuddling with her mommy and daddy, hugs and kisses from her family, and being told “I love you” a countless amount of times. Lainey will always remain her parents’ precious miracle baby, and they will hold her again in Heaven one day.
Lainey joins her paternal grandfather, William Schmitt; paternal great-grandfather, Wayne Tollefson; paternal grandparents, Robert and Dorris Schmitt; maternal great-grandfather, Loren Derrick; and maternal great-grandparents, Robert and Joanne Seibel in Heaven.
Lainey is survived by her loving parents, Jared and Rebecca (Derrick) Schmitt; her twin brother William; maternal grandparents, Richard and Joan Derrick; paternal grandmother Lori Schmitt; maternal great-grandmother, Rose Derrick; paternal great-grandmother Barbara Tollefson; aunts and uncles Tom and Allison (Derrick) Leece, Jeffrey Derrick, Chase and Jessica Schmitt; and cousins Sonora, Isla, and Finnegan Leece; and Avery and Ariana Schmitt.
Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 11:00 AM on Saturday, November 25, 2017 at Immaculate Conception Church 151 S Washington Ave, New Richmond, Wisconsin. Visitation will be held for one hour prior to Mass at the church. Interment will be in the parish cemetery.
