Galion, Ohio

 Jeanne Schneider, 94, of Galion passed away Sunday evening, May 16, 2021 at Mill Creek Nursing in Galion.

She was born July 29, 1926 in Livingston, Illinois and was the daughter of Earl Roy and Rose Minerva (Kuntz) Lear. On February 5, 1949 she married John L. Schneider and he preceded her in death after 61 years of marriage on December 10, 2010.

Jeanne graduated from Iberia High School and from the Marion Business College. She worked as a bookkeeper for the former W. E. Lott Garage in Galion.

They remained very active with the American Legion in Sun Lakes.

Jeanne enjoyed golfing, crafts and was an amazing seamstress. She and John spent many years enjoying antique shopping and craft shows.

She is survived by a sister-in-law, Marian Hoffman of Kentucky; nieces, Deb (Mark) Farina of Galion and Christine (Mark) Maxwell of Lexington and several great nieces and nephews.

In addition to her parents and husband, she is preceded in death by a sister and brother-in-law, Betty (Paul) Sherman and an infant brother, Kenneth Lear.

There will be a graveside service at 2:00 p.m., on Monday, May 24, 2021 at Mt. Calvary Cemetery in Galion with Father Paul Fahrbach officiating.
