Jenifer was born on January 7th, 1983 in Saint Joseph, Michigan to Richard Collis Jr. and Lisa Werdowatz. She grew up in Coloma, Michigan, attending Lake Michigan Catholic and Coloma Public Schools. Jen worked at Pleasure Pools for 18 years and at Four Seasons Spa and Pool Service as well. Her hard work ethic was always noticed. Her strength, courage, and resilience were admirable. She always persevered with independence and determination. She had a love for music, art, and creativity. Jen had a sense of humor and brought light and laughter to those around her no matter the situation. She enjoyed nature, the beach, collecting beach glass, shells, and Indian beads. Her twin, Jaime, wasn’t just her other half, she was her best friend and growing up you could always find them side by side. Jen’s spontaneous and bubbly personality will be deeply missed.
Jenifer is survived by her significant other Joel Schmidt, his two daughters Abigail and Delilah Schmidt, mother Lisa Werdowatz, siblings Shiloe (Jeremy) Wines, Jaime Mcquillan, Jacqueline Collis, Mark (Danielle) Hampton, Matthew Hampton, and Alyssa (Sean) Shelton.
She was preceded in death by her father Richard Collis Jr., grandfather Richard Collis, and grandparents Edward and Marie Werdowatz.
