Julie Ann (Ranek) Schmidt was born on Monday, June 28, 1965 to Basil and Beverly (Schmoll) Ranek in Tyndall, South Dakota. On April 21, 2000, Julie was blessed with one daughter, Ariel Ann Hood. On December 31, 2009, Julie was united in marriage to Roger Schmidt in Yankton.
Julie lived in Yankton and spent most of her working career there, serving at Burger King, Baldwin Filter, and many other businesses. She enjoyed having her nails done, a good cup of coffee, and talking about her daughter. Her greatest joy was spending time with Ariel.

She is survived and remembered by her husband Roger Schmidt of Yankton; daughter Ariel Hood of Yankton; brother Tim (Dawn) Ranek of Conroe, TX; sister Joanie (Willie) (Ranek)Crews of Tyndall; brothers-in-law Donavon (Jeannie) Schmidt of Crofton, NE, and Charles (Paulette) Schmidt of Crofton, NE; and several nieces and nephews.

May the dear family of Julie find comfort in knowing that she now rests, and will continue to do so until Jesus calls for all in the grave to come out. (John 5:28, 29; 11:11, 43) They will awaken to earth and be able to live the life originally intended for humans, that is, living forever on a paradise earth. (Psalm 37:29; Genesis 1:28; Isaiah 33:24; Revelation 21:4) Take care and please accept my sincerest condolences.

I worked with Julie at Baldwin Filters. We called her Phillips Dilller because of her poofy hair. She was always eating candy mostly life savors. I remember when her mom was sick I felt so bad for her because my mom's been through cancer 2 times already. I still have her so I' m lucky. Her daughter was her pride and joy and my heart goes out to her. You'll be missed and remembered by many. God Bless all the family and friends. You're all in my thoughts and prayers. God Bless you.

I only knew Julie for 2 years, but I had the honor of spending many hours with her. In those 2 years I saw her work hard to be a better person, mother, wife and friend to all in her life and I saw her reestablish her close and loving relationship with God. I know she loved her daughter, husband and family. My heart is broken for the loss of one of God's beautiful kids. My thoughts and prayers are with Julie's daughter Ariel, and all who loved her.
