Nancy Rumsey Schmidt

Nancy was born on September 12, 1941, and went home to meet Jesus on February 6, 2019. Nancy passed peacefully in her sleep at her home in Wren, Mississippi. Nancy will be missed by all those whose life she touched. Nancy was a member of Tranquil Methodist Church where she served as a Sunday School teacher, chair of the Helping Hands committee and a loyal member of the Tranquilizers. Nancy was born in Allegan, MI. She attended Otsego High School and Michigan State University. After raising two children and spending 20+ years as a 4H leader in the Allegan area, Nancy moved to Titusville, FL. While living in Titusville, Nancy worked for NASA at the Kennedy Space Center. Nancy was support for many Space Shuttle missions at the Space Center. She always admired America’s astronauts, the Space Shuttle program and the still functioning International Space Center. After retiring a little early from the space center, Nancy joined her husband(Glenn) in breeding Trakehner sports horses. Nancy adored the new foals and treated them with love. She assisted with their training and was rewarded with two Horse of the Year plaques and a Grand Champion mare at the Trakehner National Convention. Nancy’s other passion was therapeutic riding. She was instrumental in starting two programs in her life. One was located in Allegan, Mi. and the other was located in Cleveland, TN. Nancy’s skill and intuitive feel for the needs of physically or mentally challenged children, youth and adults produced many miracles founded on God’s grace and mercy. Nancy was a NARHA certified riding instructor for over thirty years and trained many other riding instructors. Nancy is survived by her husband, Glenn, a daughter Joyce, a son Ed, a sister Laura, a stepson Jason, a stepdaughter Jessica, a foster daughter Tammy and seven grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
