Mary Ellen Schneider

June 26, 2015


Mary Schneider, 74, formerly of Dickinson, died peacefully on Friday, June 26, 2015 with her family by her side at Bethany Nursing Home in Fargo, ND.


Mary was born November 18, 1940, to William and Elsie (Schaible) Fiedler.  She grew up in Mott, ND and graduated from Mott High School, in 1958.  After high school, Mary attended college at Dickinson State University for two years before moving to Bismarck, ND where she worked at Midwest Motor Express for seven years. During this time, Mary went on a blind date, through the help of mutual friends, where she met her future husband. Mary married Robert James Schneider on Oct. 21, 1967, in Dickinson and raised three children William, Steve and Pauline.  Mary was a stay-at-home mom and participated in many charity events within the Catholic Church and schools.  Her greatest joy was spending time with her family as well as enjoying her morning coffee breaks “therapy sessions” with her circle of friends.

Mary is survived by her three children; sons William, Anchorage, Alaska; and Stephen, Minneapolis, Minn.; and daughter, Pauline, Fargo; and brother, Jim (Betty), Pelican Rapids, MN; and sister, Donna, Bismarck.  Mary was preceded in death by her husband, Robert; and parents, William and Elsie.

    Bill, Steve, and Polly,

    Your Mom, my Aunt Mary, was such a loving and caring person. When I and my brothers were children, she always made sure we all got a hug from her before we would leave after a visit to your home in Dickinson.

    When I was working at the bookstore here in Bismarck, I was able to visit several times with Aunt Mary when she and your Dad would come into the store so she could get the books she wanted to read (she loved the old-fashioned romance novels.) If possible, I would take a break so we could sit and talk over coffee in the cafe.’ And, she would (like when I was a little girl) give me a hug before they left.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
