She was born on September 8, 1939 in Waterville, WA, the daughter of Walter and Vera (Ogle) Schneider. Thelma was raised and attended school in Waterville.

In addition to raising four sons, she worked as a retail clerk and bookkeeper at Colville’s T.V. Center, Ramble’s Sport Shop and later at the Sears Catalog Store before retiring. She enjoyed snow-birding in Arizona, visiting on the telephone with her many dear friends and being at home surrounded by her beautiful flowers and loving family. She was a member of Immaculate Conception Catholic Church, where she was a member of the Altar Society.
