In Loving Memory of Robin Kristine Schmidt

Robin Kristine Schmidt was called to her home with the Lord April 12, 2019, at the age of 62. She was born on June 6, 1956 and graduated from Central Kitsap High School in Silverdale, Wash., in 1974.

It was in Silverdale that Robin met her husband of 44 years, Kenneth "Kirt" Schmidt. The couple was married in 1975 in Bremerton, Wash., and were blessed with two children, Jeremy and Jenna. They made themselves homes in Bremerton, Tacoma, and Onalaska, Wash.

Robin continued her education and graduated Magna Cum Laude from Washington State University with a degree in Education. Robin became an educator, herself, teaching at Onalaska Middle School.

Robin was an active and energetic person best described as a "go-getter." She served as a mentor for young cheerleaders, coached school athletes, and joined home-building missions to Mexico. She was a dedicated Christian and was a member of Mountain View Baptist Church in Centralia.

With a bright and uplifting spirit, Robin touched those around her with kindness and warmth. She had a beautiful smile and a wry sense of humor.

She was also a world traveler. Robin and Kirt set off on adventure after adventure; from cruises on the high seas, to visiting the high altitude perch of Machu Picchu in Peru, and the birthplace of Jesus in Israel. She loved America, too, visiting the splendor and beauty of scores of National Parks as well as the fun and funky tourist attractions that dot our country.

Robin was preceded in death by her daughter, Jenna K. Schmidt; and parents Robert Reid and Gloria Lou (Decker)Kenlon. She is survived by her husband, Kirt; her son, Jeremy Bowen Schmidt and his wife, Teri; and granddaughters, Emma and Casey of Edmonds, Wash.; brother-in-law Andy Schmidt; sister-in-law Deah, from Aliso Viejo, Calif.; brother-in-law, Tim Schmidt; and sister-in-law Jonie, of Fort Collins, Colorado.

A Celebration of Life service will be held at 11 AM, Saturday, May 4, at Mountain View Baptist Church in Centralia. Donations may be made to the Lewis County Animal Shelter in Robin's memory.

I’m in shock. Robin, my heart hurts. You were one of the most beautiful women I’ve ever had the pleasure of serving next to. My heart would fill with so much joy when I’d see Bruce’s truck coming down the road, knowing you were coming to pray with us. I’ll cherish the talks we had and the moments we shared in Mexico. You truly shined the light of God where ever you went. You’ll be missed. RIP Robin

What a great group of kids on the Onalaska track and field team. Today at our meet in Adna we all wore ribbons in remembrance of Mrs. Schmidt, but then it was suggested that we have a moment of silence before we started. We went to the finish line and made a tight circle, holding hands while a prayer was said. We decided to ask meet management if they could do a moment of silence before the start of the meet. Yes...a tribute to Mrs. Schmidt and a 1min moment of silence for her. Thank you Adna Pirates and thank you Onalaska track and field but mostly, thank you Mrs. Schmidt, you touched so many and so many will miss you

Heaven has gained and we have lost our beautiful sister in Christ, Robin Schmidt. Words cannot express the pain, shock, and heartache that we are experiencing as we have lost one of our founding board members, sister in Christ, passionate prayer warrior, and servant of the Lord. Robin loved people and her Lord more than we can even put into words. We can find hope and peace in knowing that she is in the arms of Jesus, reunited with her beautiful daughter. However, we are grieving today as we have lost our faithful friend, sister, wife, mother and missionary. Robin started going on our Mexico trips almost 30 years ago and was a faithful participant and board member since that time. Her passion for prayer impacted every person on our Mexico trips and her smile, joy, and excitement for the Lord will be felt for years and years to come. Tears are being shed, hearts are broken, but Jesus is still Lord and we have peace and hope in him alone.

Laying in bed, trying to go to sleep, but waves of grief keep washing over me.
Luke said to me yesterday, “Mom, I’m having a rough time...Robin just is that person you think will always be in your life...” and Lane said tonight, after his Ninja challenge, “She would have thought this was cool and would have told me that.”
I began thinking, how many times Robin Schmidt and Kirt Schmidt have come to one of my boys’ performances or events. How many fundraisers have they been involved in or helped with? How much of an impact did both of those people make in not only my life, but also Luke, Lane, and Josh’s life? I am so honored that Robin not only shared in my life, but my entire family as well.
Robin’s life certainly touched so very many people...like a ripple that keeps going. I want to live like Robin. I think that could be my way of honoring her life. To live life to the fullest and give of myself to others selflessly and find laughter in every moment and to shed tears with no apologies and try every day to have compassion for others and try to make the world a better place and know God is always good. If I could only be an ounce of how awesome Robin was, I will consider myself lucky.
