She married Robert L. Schwartzkopf in Scottsbluff March 24, 1984. Robert died October 5, 1995. In addition to her family, friends and zest for life, her greatest joy was her "boys" Yogi, Benji and Charlie.

Ranette is survived by her brothers Randy and Marianna Schneider of Aurora, Colorado and Brent and Ginger Schneider of Gering; three step daughters Kathy, Renee and Lorie and numerous grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles and Benji and Charlie.
Preceding Ranette in death were her husband and mother and father.
Ranette's family would like to acknowledge and especially thank our cousin Cindy, whose loving support and caring ways fulfilled Ranette's wish to remain in her home as she courageously struggled with cancer.

Although taken from us too soon, Ranette will be remembered for her faith, generosity and strength and will be sadly missed by family and friends.
