Rayna was born on September 26, 1977 in New Ulm to Gary & Mila (Puri) Schmid. She was a 1996 graduate of Waconia High School. Rayna then attended the University of Minnesota, graduating with a degree in retail design and marketing. She enjoyed golfing, playing cribbage, shooting pool and hoops, spending time with her friends and her beloved black lab, Doogy. Rayna had a passion for exploring nature and collecting unique rocks she would find along the way. Most of all, Rayna had a gorgeous smile, an infectious laugh, and would do anything for anybody. She truly was a beautiful soul who was taken from us too soon. May she rest in peace and her beautiful soul dance for eternity. Happy trails, Rayna.
