Maureen A. Schneider, of Yonkers, passed away on Sept. 5, 2021. Beloved wife of Robert J. Schneider. Loving mother of Jennifer (Keith) Snyder and Mickey Schneider (Stacy). Devoted grandmother of Daniella Schneider, Brooke Snyder, Jake Schneider, Jackson Snyder and Chase Schneider. Dear sister of Patti Shanahan, Michael Shanahan, Anne Ingram and the late Richie Shanahan. Maureen touched everyone she ever met with kindness and generosity. No matter who you ask, they would describe her as the most selfless person they’ve ever met. Her happiness was derived from simply making other people happy. A mainstay at Tuckahoe and Eastchester little league games, basketball games, soccer, track meets, plays, concerts, awards ceremonies and dance shows, she was known and loved by so many in the local community. She also has remained loyal and close with friends she’s had since her teenage years in the Bronx, as well as new friends she’s made at her home away from home LBI, New Jersey. Her driving passion was her family, and she devoted herself to making them feel happy, special and loved. She will be missed tremendously by everyone, but we know she will be smiling down upon us all from above.
