    GREEN BAY, Wis. -

    An autopsy is planned for Tuesday to determine what killed an elementary school principal as she left Lambeau Field on Sunday.

    Jennifer Semmann, 43, of Grafton, collapsed Sunday as she was leaving the NFC championship game, Brown County Medical Examiner Al Klimek said.

    Semmann, principal for the last seven years at MacArthur Elementary School in Germantown, had no significant medical history and was sitting in indoor skybox seats.

    “She wasn’t exposed to the elements,” Klimek said. “She was exiting the stadium after the game and just went down. We have to figure out what happened here.”

    Germantown School District Superintendent Dr. Victor Rossetti said Semmann has a husband and two daughters. He described her as a warm woman who was dedicated to children and education.

    “If you would have known Jennifer, or if you would have seen her working, you would have thought, ‘She’s not working, she’s just having fun,’ ” he said. “She was just enjoying herself. She loved what she did, and I think that’s what made her so outstanding.”

    Ashwaubenon Public Safety Cmdr. Jim Skorczewski said medical personnel were dispatched at 10:24 p.m. When public-safety crews arrived three minutes later, Semmann wasn’t breathing and didn’t have a pulse.

    Skorczewski said medical personnel faced serious challenges because of the cold.
    Oxygen masks and devices use to help the patient breathe froze, and rescue workers — working without winter gloves — lost dexterity as their fingers became numb.

    Skorczewski said Semmann’s condition did not change while rescuers were on scene.

    43 is too young to go, but I can't think of a better way.
    To simply drop dead on the hallowed grounds of Lambeau Field, no doctors,hospitals or suffering involved, that's how I'd like to go.

    It warms my heart to hear everyone say 43 is young.

    I haven't seen the results of the autopsy made public. Any updates??

    Emotions can play havoc on your health and there certainly was emotion all that day and then the unthinkable end to the game.

    God called her home for a reason.
