Amy Lynne Schmitt

February 13, 1968 - June 30, 2019

Amy Lynne Schmitt died Sunday, June 30, 2019 at Tabitha Journey House, at age 51.

Amy graduated from Crete High School, Doane College, and Doane College’s Master's Degree Program. She worked in various businesses, but she had one common thread in work and life- the enjoyment of people. Amy’s laugh was infectious, her energy boundless and her impact on those she encountered, immeasurable. That love of others permeated everything she did, whether it was for her daughters, the students while she worked at Doane, the customers at her bakery, or almost anyone she took time to connect with.

Amy enjoyed raising her girls, singing, dancing and teaching them how to be great cooks, and good people. Her enthusiasm pervaded into her immense love of sports- Husker football, Kansas City Chiefs football, baseball, basketball and St. Louis Blues hockey. Her cancer fight was arduous, but Amy persisted with a positive attitude, a strong faith and a resolve that one of her oncologists marveled she had “fought this harder than anyone” he had known.

Amy is survived by her children Kelsey and Emily, husband Douglas (Martell, NE), sisters Jill Messman (Des Moines, IA), and Stacey Messman (Lincoln, NE), father Darrell Messman and his wife Julie (Lincoln, NE), father-in-law Randall Schmitt (Hamilton, MT), sister-in-law and brother-in-law Tracy and Chad DeVall (Hamilton, MT) and seven nieces and nephews.

Amy’s celebration of life will be July 8, 2019, 10 am at Lincoln Berean Church Chapel. Amy asked that attendees wear bright colors in remembrance of her cheerful nature. Cremation, no visitation. Memorials are encouraged to be sent to the following charities: and
