Obituary for Patricia Ann Schneider
Patricia Ann (Bashore) Schneider passed away April 17, 2021 at Sarah Bush Hospital, Mattoon, IL with her children by her side. Patricia was born on June 23, 1936 in Decatur, IL to Thelma C. and Leon D. Bashore. In June of 1956, Patricia married Earl J. Schneider (Bud). They had six incredible children: Amy (Charles) Revilla of Champaign, Kyle (Julie) Schneider of Kauai, Hawaii, Angela (Rob) Jamison of Champaign, Andrea (Randy Cooper) Wilsey-Cooper of Rantoul, Alisa (Chris) Fiorentino of Lawrenceville, Georgia, and Arin (Robert) Scott of Mundelein, IL. Patricia had 19 beautiful grandchildren and 21 great grandchildren, all of whom she spoke of with tremendous pride. In 1982, she received a degree in nursing from Louisiana State University (LSU-S) in Shreveport, LA, and she spent the next 30 years as an OR Nurse, a Traveling Nurse, and eventually retired as the Supervisor of Nursing at Lincoln’s Challenge, Rantoul, IL. She is preceded in death by her parents and her husband, who passed away in 1972. Patricia lived a full and adventurous life; her sister-in-law Theresa (Schneider) Chayko described her best as "the ultimate survivor." The family would like to thank the staff at Hilltop Skilled Nursing and Rehab Facility in Charleston, IL for the wonderful care given to Patricia as she recovered from a near fatal fight with Covid-19 in September of 2020. They also thank the nurses, doctors, and staff at Sarah Bush Hospital for the care and comfort given to Patricia and her children during this sad time. Due to Covid restrictions, a private service will be held for her family and close friends.
