Barbara was born Dec. 15, 1930, in Swampscott, Mass., to Thomas and Florence (Killiam) Barker. She graduated from Swampscott High School in 1948 and the attended secretarial school. After her education, she worked for a doctor, General Electric Co., and at Civilian Navy at Charleston Navy Shipyard in Boston.

She met her future husband, Bill, at a USO dance in Boston while he was in the Navy. Barbara married William "Bill" L. Schneider on June 26, 1954, in Swampscott, Mass. They drove to Niagara Falls for their honeymoon in a 1949 Ford and came to live in Auburndale several months later after Bill's discharge from the Navy.

Barb worked as a secretary for a few years before starting a family. Barb and Bill had three daughters. Barb was a good wife, mother and homemaker. She had been a 4-H leader for many years and taught many children how to sew, crochet and knit. Barb also volunteered at New Visions Gallery and the Ronald McDonald House for many years. She enjoyed spending time with her husband, children and four grandchildren. She also enjoyed walking, crafts, playing Chinese checkers, and visiting Algoma in Door County with Bill.

She is lovingly survived by her husband, Bill, Auburndale; and their daughters, Norma (Mike) Sabel, Auburndale, Christine (Gerald) Weber, and Lisa (Mike) Behling, all of Marshfield. She is also survived by their grandchildren, Tom Sabel, Luke, Jillian and Noah Behling; and a sister, Betty Chandler, Marblehead, Mass. She was predeceased by her parents.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be designated to Wells Nature View, Saint Joseph's Palliative Care Unit or Faith Lutheran Church.

The family wishes to thank all the staff at Wells Nature View, Saint Joseph's Palliative Care, Ministry Home Hospice, and the pastors at Faith Lutheran Church during this difficult time.
