August 13, 1934 - February 5, 2020
Rosalie Mae Schneider, a small woman with a big heart, died peacefully with her family by her side on February 5, 2020 at the age of 85. Born August 13, 1934 to Ralph and Juanita (Johnson) Cortright, Rosalie grew up with a strong will and great understanding of the power of prayer. She became a nurse and worked at St. Lawrence and Hayes Green Beach Hospitals. She met her future husband in Lansing at Bradleys Dance Hall, and then June 8, 1955 she married Edwin Schneider. When they started their family they filled their home with love, caring, adventure, helping others, and the Word of God. Her family fondly remembers that she would pray with her Rosary…while driving. A strong, silent force about her, Rosalie cared for others all the time through her actions and enjoyed cleaning the church, organizing funeral dinners, making afghans for children, sewing clothes for her family, and making birthday and Easter cakes. Some of the things that Rosalie enjoyed include: camping, hiking, square dancing, polka music (especially the Beer Barrell Polka), swimming in the neighbors pond, baking, and tending her flower beds. After their retirement, Rosalie and Edwin enjoyed several trips to McAllen, TX, and a special trip to Alaska and Newfoundland. Rosalie is survived by her husband of 65 years, Edwin; children, Marcella (Mike) Haag, Marvin (Teri) Schneider, Dorothy (Ron) Schroder, Edward (Lynn) Schneider, Charles (Marlene) Schneider, and Kay (Parks) Preston; 21 grandchildren; 30 great-grandchildren; and siblings, Juanita Brassell and Cleo Cortright; sister-in-law, Rose Cortright. She was predeceased by daughter, Nancy; and siblings, Mayn (Marty) Cortright and Ralph Cortright. Friends are encouraged to support the Schneider family. Funeral Mass will be celebrated Monday, February 10, 2020, at 2:00 PM at St. Mary Catholic Church in Charlotte with Rev. Fr. David Rosenberg officiating. Visitation is Sunday, February 9, 2020, 2-4:00 PM and 6-8:00 PM, with a Rosary service officiated by Deacon Charles Schneider at 7:30 PM. If desired, the family suggests memorial contributions to St. Mary Catholic Church or the Alzheimer's Association. Friends and family are encouraged to share memories of Rosalie on her Tribute Page at www.PrayFuneral.com. The family is in the care of Pray Funeral Home, Charlotte.
