1939 ~ 2021
One of our Lord’s most faithful servants, Barbara Mae Schneider, an amazing Mother and an advocate of women’s rights, passed away Monday morning, June 21, 2021, at her home in Arizona. She lived a life of courage and service to our Lord.
Barbara was born on March 23, 1939 in Winona, MN to Gerald and Evelyn Schneider. Barbara was married and has 3 children, sons Michael “Mick” Cyert, Mitchell Cyert, and daughter Melinda Cyert (De Vorak).
Her work for the Veterans is a matter of care and love. Barbara was very proud and dedicated to her volunteer work at The Casa and to God. Her success was, at least in part, attributable to her strong will and her passion. Her insatiable appetite to learn and gain knowledge to help our world. She was devoted to her family, her faith, to people in need and committed to integrity and professionalism to the restaurant business.

What a beautiful lady she was. I loved when she would come stay at Melinda”s in the summer and I could visit with her. I’m so sorry for your family’s loss. Hugs and many prayers to you all
I remember a wonderful time sitting in the park with Barbara and her dad, who was visiting. That Sunday afternoon was full of laughter and fun. That’s how I will always remember Barbara. God Bless my friend!

We will miss her greatly. She was always there to listen to us and offer advise during our “Happy Hours” time. We loved her blue smiling eyes. Always a twinkle in them. Here’s to you, Barb, as we raise our martini glasses and toast to you. You touched our lives and will always be in our hearts.
Mick. So sorry to hear about the passing of your mother. Prayers for you and all the family.
