HUDSON - Merrylin Justice Schmitz was born to Nicole and Brian Schmitz on April 26, 2005. She returned home to the Lord on Feb. 18, 2007, after a sudden accident. Her life was short but full and touched so many people's hearts. Everyone who saw the red-headed little angel was touched with how loving and giving she was.

She is survived by her loving parents, Nicole and Brian Schmitz of Hudson. She also is survived by two brothers, Devon and Brandon, both at home, who will miss their sister greatly. She also is survived by her maternal grandfather, Donald (Natalia) Fishler of Dubuque, as well as her paternal grandparents, Doug and Chris Schmitz of St. Paul, Minn., and paternal great-grandmothers. She is also survived by many aunts and uncles as follows: Katrina (Joe) Hammel of Cedar Rapids, Jessica (Eric) Trujillo of Dubuque, Kelly (Wayne) Davis of Hudson, Bil Schmitz of Hudson, Kim VanDee of Dubuque, as well as many great-aunts and uncles. She is also survived by many cousins: Taylor and Riley of Dubuque, Sarah, Justin and Jesse VanDee, Amber, Andy, Hannah and Madison Davis and Felicia Schmitz.

She was preceded in death by her maternal grandmother, Mary Fishler; her maternal great-grandparents, Ruth and Harold Schuldt and John and Irene Fishler; her paternal great-grandfathers, Robert Cooling and Leonard Schmitz; as well as a cousin, Maggie Marie.

Merrylin enjoyed so much of her life. She loved riding her horse, spending time with her brothers and cousins, everything pink, and most of all, spending time with her Daddy and Mommy. She came into our lives with a heart ready to love and left us with our hearts full and wanting more. She will forever be in our hearts and forever missed.

Services will be 11 a.m. Thursday at Community Church, Hudson, with burial in Mount Olivet Cemetery, Waterloo. Public visitation from 4 to 7 p.m. Wednesday at Parrott & Wood Chapel of Memories, an Overton Family Service, Waterloo.
