Niccole Lea Morgan Schmidt, the only child of David W. and Pamela A. Morgan was born on October 4, 1981 in Des Moines, IA. After years of struggle, she lost her battle for life at age 39 from the effects of Huntington’s Disease Chorea, (the same genetic disease that also attacked her mother), on September 17, 2021.
Niccole grew up in Lamoni, IA and graduated from Lamoni Community Schools in 2000. She attended Graceland University and Des Moines Community College. Niccole had various jobs in the state of Washington, Las Vegas, Nevada and Des Moines, IA until her illness prevented her from working. Niccole had a unique sense of humor, enjoyed laughing, eating great food and being with her loved ones. She was a very private person, yet, drew people to her with her non-judgmental, gentle and kind personality. She was a fiercely loyal friend. Even in her darkest hours, she kept a positive attitude and was concerned about her caregivers, friends and family more than she was about herself.
Niccole married Christen Nicole Schmidt on January 25, 2011. Together they shared their love, faith in God and joys and sorrows of life. Niccole’s wish was to be in her home with Christen by her side when she left this life. That wish was granted.
She leaves behind her loving and devoted wife, Christen Schmidt, Osceola, IA, her father, David W. Morgan (Lisa McLain), Lamoni, IA, mother-in-law, Cindy Jackson, (Darrell Jackson), Redding, IA, brother-in-law, Michael Schmidt (Elizabeth Schmidt), nephews, Ethan and Christopher Schmidt, Leon, IA, brother in-law, William Noble, nieces and nephews, William, Jasmine and Roman Noble, Leon, IA, Gary Noble (Velda Noble), Leon, IA

A Celebration of Life Service will be held at the Armstrong Funeral Home in Mount Ayr, IA at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, September 25, 2021. Private burial with family will follow. Memorials will be established at a later time.
