Jeffrey C. Schmieg

Jeffrey C. Schmieg, 61, of Waterloo, IL, passed away March 5, 2021, at de Greeff Hospice House. 

Jeff was born December 14, 1959, in St. Louis, MO and moved with his family to Waterloo at 3 years old, where he lived the rest of his life.

He is survived by his sisters Linda (Jim) Bader, Donna (Tom) Moye, Becky (Bill) Byington, and Patti Akande; aunts Fern (Fred) Kinzinger and Charlene Waligorski; nieces and nephew Becky (John) Dickneite, Aimee (Steve) Skundrich, Amanda (Adam) Morgan, Jason (Paula) Byington, and Madison Schmieg; cousins; and great nephews James, Noah, Vincent, Colin, Donovan, and Finnegan.

Jeff is preceded in death by his parents Clinton C. & La Verne (nee Thornton) Schmieg.

He was a member of SS Peter & Paul and graduated from Gibault High School. Jeff was a fun and generous man. A gentle giant. He was witty, loved to read, and enjoyed trivia. Jeff followed in his fathers footsteps working at Cerro Flo Products for 42 years, something he was very proud.

As an expression of sympathy the family prefers memorial contributions to:

Jeff was one of the first people I met when I went to Gibault. He was friendly and helpful to me. Always very quiet but was helpful. Sorry to hear he was ill. Have not seen him since pandemic.
