Born in Ellice Township on February 28, 1924 to Conrad Schneider and Lydia Wilhem, Stan will be deeply missed by his beloved wife of 71 years, Edith (née Gross); daughters Susan (Terry) Flynn, Linda (Erik) Vaartnou,  Jennifer (Mark) Zornes and Nancy (Louis) Eckert; and grandchildren Galen, Kaylie (Edgar), Tiiu, Levi, Khonrad and Anneleis.  He is also survived by sister Kathleen Riehl and sister-in-law Betty Gross and was pre-deceased by brothers Ken (Viola) Schneider and Morris (Madelene) Schneider and brother-in-law Ted Riehl.
