Mary B. Schneider, 63, of Beechwood, passed away on Monday, Nov. 29, 2010, from injuries received in an automobile accident.

She was born on June 4, 1947, in Milwaukee, the daughter of the late Rev. Carl and Henrietta (nee Koehler) Knorr, and on Sept. 3, 1966, she was united in marriage to Manvill "Bud" Schneider at St. Stephen’s Lutheran Church in Batavia with her father presiding.

Mary was a member of Immanuel Lutheran Church in the town of Scott, the Altar Guild and the Women’s Evening Guild.

She was a devoted wife, a loving mother and grandmother, a cherished sister and a good friend to many. Her grandchildren were her pride and joy.

She loved her "Willow Flowage." She will be deeply missed by her husband, her family and by all who knew her.
