Barbara J. Schneider
A beautiful force of nature left this earth on July 6, 2018 after a hard-fought battle with lung cancer. Born March 19, 1939 in Queens, New York, Barbara was the spirited youngest daughter of the late Evelyn and George Fouse and was twice married to the late Richard Schneider. She is survived by devoted daughters Donna Bracy (Dewey) and Karen Schneider (Tom Maitland), beloved grandsons Eric and Connor Bracy, loving sister Patricia Barhold (Tom) and special niece, Susan Beck. Also missing her are her four legged family members, Sadie and Roscoe.
Originally residing in New York and then New Jersey, she moved to Cape Coral in 1973. Barbara had a long, rewarding career in the restaurant industry and worked in various management level positions with Perkins restaurants and other local establishments, including the iconic Veranda. At one time, she was the proud owner of her own eatery, The Good Egg, in Ft. Myers. She was happy for the lifelong friendships she formed during her working years.
Barbara will be remembered for her generosity and concern for others, even during her own difficult times. Through faith and sheer will she overcame many personal struggles and maintained an attitude of positivity and gratitude. We will miss her sage advice and unwavering love. The world has lost someone very special.
Donations in her memory may be made to a Hospice organization of your choice.
