Sara was born March 31, 1967, and was chosen by Pat and Buzz Huewe to be a part of their family. As a child, she had a love for taking care of all her rabbits and dogs, and she was even spoiled enough to have a horse in her backyard. She graduated from St. Mary’s High School in Dell Rapids in 1985, Lake Area Tech in 1987, and Minnesota West Community Tech in 2009.
Sara worked many years helping the elderly. She found great self-worth in helping people. She had an amazing gift to comfort people who were struggling with life by giving a simple helping hand, a big smile, and using her gift to talk, talk, and talk some more. She had a way that it didn’t matter how bad of a day you were having, she could make you smile with her cheery attitude.
Sara gave birth to her pride and joy, Cody, on April 26, 1995. She married Wayne Schmidt and gained a step-daughter, Megan, on June 23, 2001, and moved to White, where they made their home until the time of her death. Despite her health issues, Sara took every opportunity to enjoy her life to the fullest.
She loved to spend time with her close friends playing games, doing crafts, talking, or just watching movies. She enjoyed the family camping trips, baking her holiday treats, and enjoying the company of her faithful furry friends Mickey, Oreo, and Abby.
She had many health issues – having her husband Wayne, son Cody, parents, and many friends by her side gave her great courage to handle everything with a smile and positive outlook.
Survivors include her husband, Wayne, and son, Cody, of White; step-daughter, Megan Schmidt-Guss (Jeremy); granddaughter, Lilley, of Wahiawa, HI; parents, Buzz and Pat Huewe of Dell Rapids; brother, Sam (Melinda) of Brandon; nieces and nephews; and pet dogs, Mickey, Oreo, and Abby.
She was preceded in death by her grandparents, Jake and Leona Huewe, and Irene McEneaney.
