Jayne L. Schonhoff, age 71, of Dubuque, passed away suddenly on Wednesday, March 22, 2023, in Dubuque. In keeping with her wishes, no services will be held. Behr Funeral Home is entrusted with the arrangements.
Jayne was born on December 27, 1951, in Sioux Falls, SD, daughter of Julian and Eleanor (Christopherson) Wickre.
Jayne graduated from Dubuque Senior High School, Class of 1969, and then attended NITI where she earned her CNA certificate. She enjoyed working as a CNA for decades for numerous employers including Lady of Lourdes, Dubuque Healthcare, Bethany Home, Sisters of the Presentation, Mercy Hospital and Hospice of Dubuque. She was united in marriage to the love of her life, Mark Schonhoff, on June 23, 1989, at St. Matthew's Church. Jayne loved her work, but her most valued job was the one of Mom, Gammy and Nana to her daughters, grandchildren and great-granddaughters. In her free time, she was an avid reader, loved watching classic TV, hosting holiday dinners and spending time with her fur babies, Mindy and Munkey. Jayne loved visiting with family and friends and looked forward to her monthly luncheon with long-time friend, Debbie. She will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved her.
