Laurie was born on September 14, 1961 to Wayne and Rose (Sivumaki) Jacobson in Great Falls. She married Fred Schedel and worked as an attendant for a daycare provider.

She was a wonderful wife, mother, and grandmother. She loved all animals, especially cats and her dog, Jasper. She enjoyed fishing and dancing. She was a computer nut and avid googler. She enjoyed the simple things in life, to include rides in the country, anything patriotic, and a history buff.

Laurie enjoyed spending time with her three grandkids. She was very social, but those in her circle knew her best. You always knew where you stood with her.

She is survived by her parents; husband Fred Schedel; son Kyle Schedel; daughters Jessey and Jammie Jacobson; sisters Karla Merenz and Kim Marie Jacobson; grandchildren Kaydence, Aidyn, and Kale; and several nieces and nephews.

Laurie was preceded in death by her brother, Wayne Jacobson “Pal” Jr.; grandparents; stepmom Penny Jacobson; and stepdad Michael Duff.

Dear Rose, Wayne, Karla & Kim

What can you say. I wasn't in touch with Laurie but whenever we ran into each other it was like "old home week", we could pick our friendship up and continue like we had never left. I will always love Laurie. I have some great memories of the time we hitchhiked home from "The Mall". One of the GF Policemen picked us up, and gave us holy heck for hitchhiking on 10th Ave. So. He said he was going to report back to Wayne - that scared us plus the horror stories of the young teens that went missing from 10th. We were shaking in our boots. Then there was the trip to California for the Little League National(?) playoffs. We all were crunched into your car Rosie...but what a wonderful experience...and to have Pal there, on the team....Too many many memories to write down here. When we lived next door, Laurie always took me under her wing because our "older sisters" would always leave us behind. That was Laurie...always watching out for me when the other kids were older. I will miss her being on this planet. I hope we meet again, so that maybe she can take me under her wing & show me the ropes!
