September 8, 1965 - June 13, 2019
Funeral Home Maurina-Schilling Funeral Homes -Abbotsford
Gail Louise Meyer passed away at her home shortly after midnight on Thursday, June 13, 2019 after a 7 year battle with cancer. She is at peace now, but will be sadly missed by her family and many friends.
Gail was born on September 8, 1965, the youngest daughter of Mark and Delores (Schreiner) Schmitt, in Marshfield, Wisconsin. She attended 8 grades at St Mary’s School, graduated from Colby High School and earned a one year degree from North Central Tech. She married Dean Meyer on July 16, 1994 at St Bernard Catholic Church in Abbotsford.
Gail worked several years at Tombstone Pizza in Accounts Payable, until that department was outsourced. She later worked at Marathon Cheese until she had to leave due to health issues.
Gail was an inspiration to a lot of other cancer victims. From the time she was first diagnosed with stage 4 cancer, she told everyone she didn’t want any pity; she was going to fight this disease with everything she had. She went out of her way to comfort other people and helped to organize many fund raisers to assist them with their medical bills.
Gail loved to go camping and hunting, cheering on the Packers, sitting around a campfire with family and friends, growing and arranging flowers, cooking special recipes, doing glass etching and wood burning. She loved getting together with her friends and having a good time. She vowed to live life to the fullest, and that’s what she did as long as she was able to. She had a bucket list of things she wanted to do and places she wanted to see with her family; most of which she accomplished before God called her home.
Gail is survived by her husband Dean, her daughter Samantha Meyer, Medford, sons Joseph Rudolph, Medford and Steven Augustiniac, Hartford, her mother Delores, Colby, brothers Jeffrey (Linda) Schmitt, Greenwood & James Schmitt, Colby, sisters Kimberly (Gene) Hull, Joliet, Mont, Linette Hastie, Ankeny, Iowa, Laurie Aichele (Charlie Kuehn), Fall Creek, Pamela Reynolds, Colby, her sister-in-law Cheryl Meyer, Dorchester, brothers in law Terry Meyer, Sheboygan, Doug (Cathy) Meyer, Dorchester, Kevin (Shelby) Meyer, Medford, Jay (Chris) Meyer, Lublin, Rick Rinehart, Dorchester and 6 grandchildren.
Gail was preceded in death by her father Mark, her sister Gwen, father & mother-in-law Roy & Marilyn Meyer, sister-in-law Denise Rinehart and brothers-in-law Brian Meyer, Conrad Aichele and Doug Hastie.
A memorial service will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, June 22 at the Maurina-Schilling Funeral Home in Abbotsford. Family and friends are welcome from 9:00 a.m. until time of service Saturday at the funeral home.
Gail’s family would like to extend their gratitude to the nurses from Hope Hospice for the excellent care they gave her in her last days.
