Genevieve was born September 20, 1921 in Mercer County, the daughter Michael and Agatha (Haegele) Heier. She attended Liberty School #23 through the eighth grade. Jenny helped on the family farm until she was 25. She loved to bake when mom and dad went to town. On July 22, 1947, Jenny married Nick Schumacher at St. Benedict Church by Fr. Bernard Eichner. The rest of their wedding day was celebrated at a farmhouse and dancing in a barn. Twenty-five years later they celebrated their marriage again at a farmyard. Jenny and Nick had no children but shared their farm with many nieces and nephews, who they loved like their own. Jenny enjoyed reading, sewing and baking homemade bread at the farm. She enjoyed the animals, loved gardening -raising their own food, and she took pride in the up-keep of her yard. In 1983, they purchased their home in Glen Ullin. They farmed until 1989 when they held an auction sale. They enjoyed doing some traveling together and appreciated the goodness of their small community. Jenny was a member of the Sacred Heart Parish welcoming committee. Jenny hopes to be remembered for her cooking and she always said, ‘good water makes good soup.’
Genevieve is survived by one sister, Delphine Schumacher of Beulah and numerous nieces and nephews. She will be dearly missed.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Michael and Agatha; husband, Nick: brother, John Heier; sister, Barbara Volk.
