Janet S. Schmieder

January 9, 1956 — November 1, 2020

Janet S. "Jan" Schmieder, age 64, of Bloomington, Wisconsin, passed away Sunday, November 1, 2020, at her home in Bloomington. Jan was born on January 9, 1956, in Cuba City, Wisconsin, the daughter of Robert and Evon (Burbach) Dodds. She married Richard Schmieder on April 24, 1999, in Gotham, Wisconsin. Rich and Jan successfully operated their pyrotechnics business, Platte River LLC, for approximately 20 years before illness caused her to take a limited role in their business. Jan recently received care from the Divine Nursing Home and Rehabilitation Staff in Fennimore and it was her final wish to return to her home. With the support of Rich, she could not have been happier to return home before passing peacefully. She was a very strong willed, independent woman with regular moments of great wit and creativity. Rich and Jan shared over two decades of a beautiful marriage and enjoyed each other’s company to the fullest up until her final moments. She loved visiting with family, especially her grandchildren, and in her spare time enjoyed reading, crocheting, and camping at River of Lakes Campground in Bagley, Wisconsin.
Survivors include her husband Richard Schmieder, Bloomington, Wisconsin; three daughters, Erin (Dave) Hagen of Tomah, Wisconsin, Carmen (Joe) Wiezorek of Cuba City, Wisconsin, Mary Klauer of Platteville, Wisconsin; three sons, Jamie Donar of Oregon, Wisconsin, Craig (Jennifer) Donar of Cuba City, Wisconsin, Scott McWilliams of Minneapolis, Minnesota; one step daughter, Rachel Schmieder of Platteville, Wisconsin; her eighteen grandchildren, three sisters, Dianne (Curt) Axen, of Rochester, Minnesota, Deb (Bob) Nadler, of San Diego, California, and Lisa (Jeff) Arndt, of Oregon, Wisconsin; three brothers, Roger (Sharon) Dodds, of Waukesha, Wisconsin, Tim (Jean) Dodds, of South Bend, Indiana, and Randy (Kathy) Dodds, of Nekoosa, Wisconsin.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Bob and Evon Dodds.
