This is the Schneider-Farris Family's Blog. Keep up with what we are doing by logging into this site regularly! (The reason this site is called "Tragedy and Triumph" is that when I first founded this site, my husband, Dan, had been in a horrible accident, and he recovered. His recovery was a miracle! Go back to the 2005 archives to read our story.)

Edith Kadison Schneider's (my mom) memorial service will be this Thursday February 3, 2011.
Olinger Andrews Caldwell Gibson Chapel
407 Jerry Street, Castle Rock, Colorado 80104.
A reception will follow at the Schneider family's home in Larkspur, Colorado.
All are welcome.
In Lieu of Flowers...my dad has asked that gifts be sent to to either US Figure Skating's Memorial Fund or to the Rosalind Franklin University of Health Sciences/Chicago Medical School where he is on the faculty.
A second memorial service will be held in Long Beach, California on Monday, February 7, 2011. Details to follow.

Many of our family and friends have known for awhile that my mom, Edith Kadison Schneider, has been very, very ill.
My mom died early (at about 6:00 AM) this morning 1-29-11. Please keep my family and especially my father, Dr. Arthur Schneider, in your thoughts and prayers.
There will be a service in Colorado and also one in Long Beach, California in the coming week.
My dad wrote the following this morning to the staff at the Chicago Medical School, where he is on the faculty:
- 'I got a call early this morning, my wife Edie (Edith K. Schneider) died quietly this morning. Many of you know that she has been quite ill since early September, and her passing was not unexpected.
The most wonderful thing that ever hapened to me was having her with me since we first met in 1948. We met on a "blind date" while we were both undergraduates at UCLA. The next morning, she called me and asked if I could help her with a car problem. We have never been apart since then.
On the practical side, she will be transported from here to Colorado where we will have a service by the gazebo of our home in Larkspur, Colorado. It is very beautiful there. Two of our children and their families live nearby. Following that she will be transferred to Forest Lawn in Long Beach, California where we will have a second service. Our youngest daughter and her family live near there. Long Beach and Colorado are our "real" homes. So in a sense, she will be returning home.'

Our family had the best holiday weekend! Saturday wasn't really a holiday for us, since Dan worked, Jo Ann taught skating and did quite a bit of writing, and Annabelle also skated, but on Sunday and Monday we went skiing and played in the snow!

I will never forget 2010 because About.com sent me to the Winter Olympics as their sole media representative. Annabelle went with me. Going to the Olympics as a member of the media made me feel like I made the Olympics. It was an experience I will never forget.
