Ethel M. Schneider

August 10, 1935 — November 18, 2019

Ethel M. (Bailie) Schneider, age 84, was called home to be with the Lord at her residence in Lancaster, WI, on Monday, November 18, 2019, after a short battle with cancer. She was born August 10, 1935, at home in North Lancaster Township, daughter of Paul and Geneva (Vesperman) Bailie. On August 14, 1959, she was united in marriage to Robert Schneider at the First Baptist Church in Lancaster. He preceded her in death on February 1, 2010. Ethel was a devoted pastor’s wife and served the Lord faithfully for 52 years, doing whatever needed to be done. She was a homemaker and a babysitter to many of the area’s children; she considered them her children and grandchildren. Ethel loved spending time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She loved watching any sports teams that her kids liked and kept up with the Lancaster Flying Arrows because her babysitting boys played on the football team.

Ethel is survived by her four children: Jim (Kathy) Schneider of Avon, IN, Dave (Robin) Schneider of Alton, IL, Andy (Lori) Schneider of Wrightsville, PA, and Rachael Schneider of Lancaster; 8 grandchildren: Paul Schneider of Indianapolis, IN, Pam (James) Baskerville of Avon, IN, Cyndi (John) McCormick of Midland, MI, Beth Schneider of Knoxville, TN, Missy Schneider of Vine Grove, KY, Kayla (Jason) Squire of Bel Air, MD, Marie Schneider of Fairplay, CO, and Ben Schneider of York, PA; many great-grandchildren; a brother, James (Beth) Bailie of Hillsboro, IL; a sister, Linda (Bob) Folden of Greenville, TX; a sister-in-law, Helen Bailie of Wesley Chapel, FL; and many nieces and nephews.

In addition to her parents, Ethel was preceded in death by her husband of 50 years, Robert; an infant brother, Reuben; a brother, Clayton; and a sister, Alice (Andy) Rich.
