Brigitte was born November 25, 1948 in Bad Oldesloe, Germany to Oskar & Herta (Geruschkat) Noll. The family moved to Benton Harbor and she graduated from Benton Harbor High School, Class of 1966, and attended Lake Michigan College. On November 1, 1969 she married David Paul Scheffler at St. Matthew’s Lutheran Church in Benton Harbor. Brigitte devoted her life to her family, caring for her husband, her children, their home. Along with managing their home, Brigitte assisted her husband with the daily management of hundreds of acres of apple, peach, and cherry orchards which they owned together.

Brigitte was a member of Trinity Lutheran Church and was involved in the PTA at Trinity Lutheran School during the years her 4 children attended. She was an active member of St. Joe Kickers Sports Club and held roles of Treasurer and Food Service Manager during her membership. Brigitte helped form a women’s club named “The Ladybug Club” where women would gather to share ideas, crafts, food, laughter, and support. She enjoyed cooking, baking, traveling, gardening, spending time with her friends, and most of all enjoyed spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren.

Our sincere condolences go out to Lonnie, Werner, and everyone in the Scheffler and Noll families upon your loss. My wife and I regret that the current EO would not allow us to serve a "troestenmahl" for you at the Kickers Club. If there is anything else that we can do for your wonderful families, do not hesitate to ask. Aufrichtiges Beileid von unserer Familie.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family David. Brigitte was deeply loved and will be missed by many.

I’m so sorry I’m unable to attend her celebration of life. I pray that you will be comforted by God’s love and the knowledge that Brigitte is with the Father.

Until we see her again.
