Sherwood, WI

Jean Marie Schindel, 55, of Sherwood, Wisconsin, passed away unexpectedly the morning of Friday, February 26th, 2021, at her home.  She was born June 27th, 1965, to Charles and Lynn Milheiser.  She married Jeffrey Schindel on May 8th, 2004.

Jean was a loving and caring mother, wife, daughter, sister, and friend.  She would do anything for anyone without question - a life-long care giver.  In her younger years, Jean ran her own day care center and treated each one of “her kids” as her own.  Jean gave of herself unconditionally and cared for both her mother and mother-in-law in their times of need.  Jean had a passion for baking and started her own home bakery, which she enjoyed immensely.  She also liked spending time with Jeff on his motorcycle. Her daughter and son brought her much joy, and she was so happy to be a grandma to little Blythe.  We will all miss her dearly.

Jean is survived by her husband, Jeff, of Sherwood, WI; her father: Charles Milheiser of Chilton, WI; two children: Kaitlin Horn (Jeremy Book, Jr.) of Chilton, WI, and Adam Horn (Jami Tippett) of Hilbert, WI; one grandson: Blythe Horn; one sister: Jennifer Derks (Eric); two brothers: James Milheiser (Cheri) and Joseph Milheiser (Shellie); Jeff’s mom: Nancy Schindel; Jeff’s biological father: Edward Mitchell; a brother-in-law: Ed Mitchell, Jr. (Christine); nieces & nephews; along with several aunts, uncles, cousins, and special friends, especially Zeus, Bailey, and Binks.

Jean was preceded in death by her mother, Lynn; her first husband, Gerald Horn; and Jeff’s father, Ralph Schindel. 

A funeral service will be held at 7:00pm on Friday, March 5, at the Wieting Family Funeral Home (411 W. Main St.) in Chilton, with Pastor Joel Brassfield presiding. Friends may call at the funeral home from 4:00pm until 7:00pm on Thursday, March 4, and again at the funeral home from 4:00pm until 7:00pm on Friday, March 5. Jean will be laid to rest next to her mom at High Cliff Cemetery at a future date. Those who wish may watch the service live, view flowers given, or watch a recording of the service by clicking HERE

In lieu of flowers, a memorial fund has been established in the name of Jean Schindel. Cards and memorials may be sent to the Wieting Family Funeral Home, ℅ Jean Schindel, at 411 W. Main St. Chilton, WI 53014. 

“Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass...it’s about learning to dance in the rain.”  May peace find you and may the pain leave you.  We love you to the moon and back.


 
Our family will not be the same without you. Till we all meet in heaven, we miss you. We will be expecting some of your awesome cookies when we see you again.

Jeff,
My deepest sympathy on your sudden and unexpected loss of Jean. I truly enjoyed her posts on facebook. She made me chuckle so often.
My prayers are with you during this very difficult time.
Sympathies to you and all those that loved Jean so much.

I received several encouraging messages from Jeannie over the years that I will always appreciate and exchanged several commiserating messages on how to handle the awful migraines that we both struggled with frequently. All my love and sympathy for the family.

Jean was a lovely lady and a beautiful soul, she will be missed.

Too many to list, I'm going to miss your laugh so much.
