Dorothy L. (Petersen) Schneider

July 31, 1926 ~ June 22, 2019 (age 92)

SUN CITY WEST—Dorothy L. Schneider passed away
on June 22, 2019; three days before her 71st wedding
Dorothy was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 1926.
After graduating from South Division High School, she
took a course of study as “Cadet Nurse” during WW II,
becoming a Registered Nurse. She worked as a
Registered Nurse for 40 years, and retired after working
her last 3 years at Boswell Hospital in Sun City, ironically
passing away at the same hospital where she finished
her career.
Dorothy also worked as a Teacher's Aid at Ambruster
Elementary School in Greendale, WI. She said that
this was her best job, because she was able to work
with children.
Dorothy and her husband, Bob, moved to Sun City
West in 1987. Dorothy said, “Sun City West was like
heaven because there was no more scraping ice off
windshields and shoveling snow.” She had a good
sense of humor.
Dorothy was active in many activities in Sun City
West, including sewing club, weaving club, tennis and
Rhythm Tappers. Dorothy participated in tap dancing
for 9 years, often performing at the Sun Dome.
Dorothy loved the Lord Jesus Christ, knew Him as
Savior, and loved being active in Lord of Life Church.
She asked to be remembered as a loving, giving,
helpful Christian.
Dorothy is survived by her forever loving husband,
Bob; children David, Linda (Roger); grandchildren
Matthew (Michelle) and Joshua; Niece Karen (Tom), and
nephews Russell, Kenneth and Keith (Susan). She loved
them all very much.
Memorial Service will be July 3 at 11am at
