Schneider, Marycarla, 64, of Wheeling W.Va., died Sunday, April 8, 2018.
She was a lifelong resident of Wheeling, born March 11, 1954, in Wheeling, a daughter of L. June “Mona” Schneider living in Virginia, and the late William H. “Doc” Schneider.
She started the 4th generation of the Schneider family in Wheeling. She was a 1972 graduate of John Marshall High School in Glen Dale, and a 1975 graduate of the Pittsburgh Art Institute of Interior Design with a degree in interior design. She worked many years in Wheeling for Neeley’s Grocery, Furniture Galleries, and Stone & Thomas. As she refined her craft and rose to the top, she became a designer for the Festival of Trees, the Showhouses, the Oglebay Christmas Shops, and the Cotillion Ball. She also was a cancer survivor.
For the last 5 years, she worked for Florence Crittenton, Jamboree in The Hills annually, and yet always found time for her family and friends. She will be missed beyond words. She is now resting with GOD.
In addition to her father, she was preceded in death by her paternal great-grandparents, Ludwig “Louis” and Mary Niess Schneider who owned the Butcher Shop at the Lower Market House in the late 1890’s, her maternal grandparents, Jacob A. and Ethel R. McCracken Slonaker, her paternal grandparents, Carl R. and Gladys Kasserman Schneider, who owned the Schneider’s IGA on Eoff Street in South Wheeling from 1928-1992, and her Uncle, Raymond C. Schneider.
In addition to her mother, she is survived by her sister Jana and her husband Dirk Stickdorn living in Virginia; nephew Jacob and his wife Andrea Yackenovich with their two children Emily and Jacob living in North Carolina; nephew Jeremiah and his wife Catherine Yackenovich with their son William living in Virginia; and 32 cousins and their families.
Marycarla at age 10 with her attention to detail saw what others could not, found by the eyes of a child. We love you “Mia”.
