Mrs. Schneider, prior to her marriage to Anton Schneider on Thanks Giving Day, 55 years ago, was Miss. Margaret Weber. Her parents were Mr. and Mrs. John Weber, and at her birth they resided on North Second Street. He was a Union Veteran of the Civil War and for many years farmed in the Portage and later in the Boschertown neighborhoods. After her marriage, her parents moved to Norborne, Mo. She lived here her entire life.
The deceased lady is survived by her husband, three sons Frank of West Highlands, Oliver and Joseph Schneider of Detroit, Michigan, five daughters; Miss Tillie Schneider, Mrs. Joe Reeves, Mrs. Charles Mudge and Mrs. Charles I. Dietz of this city and Mrs. Rapier Hayden of Dennison, Texas, also 20 grand children and 4 great grandchildren. Her brother Ben Weber is a resident of Fower, Kansas and her sister Mrs. Mary Boschert resides near St. Peters. Her sister-in-law is Mrs. Barbara Weber of South Eight Street, this city.
Mrs. Schneider had been in poor health for several years and took worse suddenly on Christmas Day while attending a dinner party at the home of her daughter Mrs. Dietz. The immediate cause of her death was from a stroke of paralysis. She was taken to the hospital on December 30, where her daughters have been at her bedside day and night, also her sons Ollie and Joe, who responded to the call that their mother's death could be expected and arrived here Tuesday night. Her daughter Mrs. Mudge was with her when the Death Angel arrived to relieve her from the cares of this world. The other relatives arrived shortly after.
All was done that could be done for her comfort and God's will is best. Her passing is regretted by all who knew her and who held her in the highest esteem and heartfelt sympathy is extended to the bereaved family. Their loss is great and sad.
Her daughters Mrs. Hayden of Denison, Texas, on account of illness, will not be able to attend the funeral.
