Denise L. Schneider
May 2, 1956-February 23, 2016
Denise L. Schneider passed away at her home in Newark, DE on Tuesday, February 23, 2016 at age 59, when her battle with brain cancer ended. Denise was born in Bradford, PA and was the daughter of the late Charles J. and Patricia Kopp Schneider, also of Bradford.
She received her Bachelor’s degree in Accounting and a Master’s degree in Marketing from Indiana University and was last employed as a financial analyst in the Payroll, Records Management and HRIS Department at the University of Delaware when she retired after 22 years of service.
She is survived by her husband Robert Jessie of Newark, DE, together for 26 years, her sister Sara Schneider Harrison (Michael) of Gilbert, SC. And her sister Christine Schneider Clifford of Camden, SC, as well as her trusting dog Harley.
As many of you know, the three Schneider sisters were all born on the same day and celebrated their birthdays together each year doing what they liked best, eating and gambling. And no, they weren’t triplets.
She is also survived by her brothers-in-law Arthur Olsen (Patty) of Daytona Beach, FL, Gary Olsen (Darenda) of Franklin, TN, Stephen Scheer (Stephanie) of Cape May, NJ and sisters-in law Laurell Fleming of Newark, DE, Laura Barber (Phil) of Avalon, NJ, Sim Sulecki (Phil) of Winter Haven, FL and Mary “Kathy” Clark (Engelbert) of Elkton, MD, as well as many nieces, nephews and cousins.
Denise also wanted to let all her wonderful and generous family and friends know how much she appreciated them standing by her and helping with rides, outings and “venting”. She couldn’t have done it without all of you.
A Memorial Service will be held on Saturday afternoon, February 27, 2016 at 2:00 pm at the Spicer-Mullikin Funeral Home, 121 West Park Place, Newark, DE, where friends may visit from 1:00 pm until 2:00 pm. Additional and final services will be held in her hometown of Bradford, PA at a later date.
