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.

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.
