Obituary for Patsy Ruth Schneider

Patsy Ruth (Armstrong) Schneider, 89, gracefully and peacefully shed her mortal coil on Saturday, December 2, 2017. She was born on April 12, 1928 to the late Earl Armstrong and Birdie Gibson. She was raised by her mother and step father Herbert Breedlove.

Patsy was preceded in death by her loving husband of 65 years, Richard V., (on March 8, 2012) and by son, Keith Andrew (on April 16, 1990).

She is survived by four children Larry (Debbie), Mark, Nancy (Karl Dahl) and Paul (Cassie) and by six grandchildren Megan, Jocelyn, Blair, Cory, Mary Anne and Nick.

Patsy was so much more than just a lifelong homemaker. She touched many young lives teaching Sunday School for many years at St. John's United Church of Christ and served on the church's Board of Christian Education.

She had excellent penmanship and was good friends with the daughter of the man who founded John's Hot Stew. In the early years of the restaurant, she had a summer job as a high school girl writing all their menus in cursive.

After graduation from Manual High School, she worked as a secretary for the now-defunct Schwitzer-Cummins.

Visitation will be on Wednesday, December 6, 2017 from 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM at G. H. Herrmann Madison Avenue Funeral Home, 5141 Madison Avenue, Indianapolis, IN. Funeral Service will be conducted following the Visitation at 1:00 PM. Burial will be at Crown Hill Cemetery. Memorial contributions may be made to St. John’s United Church of Christ.
