September 26, 2011 - October 6, 2021
Wilhelmina Jane Schnetzler joined hands with Jesus on Wednesday, October 6th, 2021. She passed peacefully at home, surrounded by her loving family. Willie was born to Jason and Tara Schnetzler on September 26th, 2011, in Dublin, Ohio. This tiny 10-year-old warrior stood strong and resilient during her 18-month battle against brain cancer. The darkest days of this horrible disease did not dull her shining light. Her smile, her strength, her sass, and her wonderful spirit were ever present. She became beloved by each person she encountered. Willie loved to laugh. She loved to dance. She was the youngest. She did what she wanted exactly when she wanted. She cherished her big sisters. She was always surrounded by her dogs, cats, and chickens. She was quick on the soccer field and fast in the pool. Butterfly was her favorite stroke. Willie loved all of God’s gifts: worms, frogs, turtles, fireflies, and ladybugs all came to know the palm of her hand. She loved ice cream, candy, pasta, and parmesan. Sweet Willie loved Jesus. She faced treatment with a brave heart because she knew she was never alone. Wilhelmina Jane is survived by her parents, Jason and Tara, sisters, Estella and Lulu Schnetzler, her dogs, Tito, Charlie and Wally. Also surviving are her paternal grandmother, Kathy Schnetzler; maternal grandparents, James and Sandy Wells; aunt and uncle, PJ (Wells) and Peter Guldager; cousins, Ben, Ollie and Theo; uncle and aunt, Chris Schnetzler and Karen Weber; paternal step-grandmother, Bobbi Schnetzler and aunt, Samantha Jenkins. She is preceded in death by maternal grandmother, Karen "Nonna" Wells and paternal grandfather, Thomas Schnetzler. So many more will always keep Wille close in their hearts: extended family and friends from near and far, classmates and teachers at Liberty Tree Elementary, members of Powell United Methodist Church and her incredible team of nurses and doctors at Nationwide Children’s Hospital and The James. A funeral service will be held at Powell United Methodist Church at 10am on Wednesday, October 13th. A graveside service will immediately follow at Union Cemetery.
