March 11, 1930 - June 12, 2021
Elisabeth Ruth Schneider (Liesel) age 91, died June 12, 2021. She was born March 11, 1930 in Pforzheim, Germany, the daughter of the late Heinrich and Augusta Wagner. She married Helmut Schneider on September 6, 1952 in Alfdorf , Germany. In 1956 Liesel and Helmut, with their two toddler boys left all of their family and close friends and came to the United States in search of a better life. Together they built a beautiful life. Family and friends were the foundation of their lives. They traveled extensively and made many return trips to Germany to visit family. They spent many weekends and holidays at their cottage in Lewiston with their dear friends the Schucks and the Jorgensens. Liesel was an impeccable housekeeper, her home was always immaculate. She was a wonderful cook and her family loved her homemade spaetzle, which she made frequently at the request of her grandchildren. She loved flowers and her yard, like her home was perfectly weeded and edged. She was devoted to her family and was the quintessential “Oma”. She was happiest when she was spending time with her grandchildren. She was always upbeat and positive, and was a joy to be around. The last 7 years of her life, her health continued to decline and Helmut became her sole caregiver right up to the time of her death. Their love and devotion to family and each other continue to inspire all who knew them together. She is survived by her husband Helmut, two sons Bernie Schneider (Jeannine), Werner Schneider (Laurie), and daughter Evelyn Schneider. Four grandchildren, Dan Schneider, Ken Schneider (Korey), Tim Schneider (Serena), and Maggie Hobbs (Kevin). Four great grandchildren Bodhi Schneider, Zaslo Schneider, Chance Schneider and Jack Hobbs.
