Erna Anatha Schneider was born on Thursday, December 20, 1923 to Paul and Rosa (Dewald) Hieb in Hutchinson County, South Dakota. On January 30, 1947, Erna was united in marriage to Donald L. Schneider at Frieden’s Reformed Church in Tripp and together they made their home on the farm north of Tyndall. Following Donald’s passing in 1959, Erna continued to care for the farm. With the help of her daughters, they raised cattle, chickens, and nurtured a large garden. As a farmwife and mother, Erna always provided for her family. Later in life, she moved into Tyndall. She loved to sew and made many hand-sewn quilts throughout the years. For a time she also worked as a seamstress for the dress shop in town as well as for many people in the community. Erna cherished her family, especially her grandchildren whose concerts and sporting events she rarely missed.
Erna passed away on Thursday, April 9, 2015 at the Good Samaritan Society of Tyndall having attained the age of 91 years, 3 months, and 20 days.
She is survived and remembered by her four daughters: Donna (Vern) Kaul of Springfield, Rita (David) Jemming of Kalispell, MT, Wanda Schneider of Pleasanton, CA, and Barbara (Craig) Cromwell of Grants Pass, OR; seven grandchildren; thirteen great-grandchildren; and one sister Lillian Burfeindt of Avon.
She was preceded in death by her husband Donald Schneider, parents, one brother, and one grandson.
