September 12, 1970 - June 22, 2019
Jeremy Shane Smith, age 48, of Michigan City, IN passed away at home on Saturday, June 22, 2019. He was born on September 12, 1970 in Galesburg, IL, the son of Janet E. Monville and step-father Roy Monville.
Jeremy was a graduate of Ellison High School in Killeen, TX, and received his bachelor’s in Nursing from the University of Iowa in Iowa City, Iowa. He worked as the director of nursing at Cottage Hospital in Santa Barbara, CA. Most recently, he spent his later remaining years doing what he loved the most - going to Nova (and spending time with friends from the Hobbit/Lord of the Rings League), perfecting his gaming skills, spending times with his Yorkies (Penny, Jar Jar and Luke) and enjoying time with his wife.
Jeremy was a lifelong learner, and he spent a lot of his time expanding his mind on various subjects. He was passionate about his work as a nurse and took his job in the medical field with seriousness and intense care. Jeremy was a fighter, who never backed down both in his illness and in life in general. Even as a child, Jeremy was headstrong. Jeremy was never lost, he always knew exactly where he was at.
On May 4, 2012 in Michigan City, IN he married Patty who survives in Michigan City, IN.
Also surviving are four step-sons, Bobby Victory of Colorado, Christopher (Kristy) Victory of Clinton, IA, Brandon Victory of Iowa and Marty (Cassandra) Victory, II of Iowa; two sisters, Janeen Chambers of Oquawka, IL and Julie Smith of Kalamazoo, MI; two brothers, James "Scott" Rhinehart of Biggsville, IL and Jeffrey "Steve" Smith of Kalamazoo, MI.
