Cora Phyllis Schneider

August 22, 1925 – November 20, 2018
Her life of 93 years has been a blessing to many for 14 years in the Waverly and since 1961 in Chilliwack, living with her parents Chris (1967) and Rennetta (1995) first on a luscious peach orchard from Williams street to CSSS, before Rotary Street and houses were built. She and her mother were the first to move into Sepas Court on Nowell and Bole. They were active in three women’s groups, Elder College and much else. She is survived by her brother Walter born Nov 27, 1929 and her sister Myrtle Macdonald June 5, 1921.

They grew up at Vegreville AB where they helped their parents become Master Farmers in 1955. Walter has two children and 2 grandsons in Kelowna and a son with two granddaughters in Ontario. Myrtle has a daughter, late son-in-law, three grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren in Montreal. Her late son Timothy and family lived in Rosedale and Chilliwack for several years where two of his five children were born and two went to school there. Now 3 are in Regina with 2 children and 2 in Saskatoon with 7.

A Service of Remembrance is booked for 2 pm Saturday December 8 Waverly 8445 B by Young Road. Please let all her old friends know. As soon as we have had coffee or tea and light snacks, we will proceed to place Cora’s sacred ashes.
