She was born March 19, 1937, in Bloomington, daughter of Don and Martha Elise Edgar Massie. She married Bill Schnittker on May 3, 1959 at Wesley Methodist Church in Bloomington. He preceded her in death.

Surviving are a daughter, Barbara (Jeff) Fowler, Normal; a son, Doug (Ashley) Schnittker, Bloomington; a brother, Don Massie Jr., Burbank, Il; four grandchildren, Stacie (Curtis) Koehler, Scott (Rachel) Fowler, Mickey Schnittker, and Maggie (Steve) Perkins; and five great-grandchildren, Caden, Kendyl, Nathan, Wyatt, and Emma. She was preceded in death by a brother, Charles Massie.

She worked at Youthful Shoes/Luers Stride Rite for more than 20 years, fitting countless children into their first pair of shoes. She volunteered at Carle BroMenn Hospital, was actively involved in the Bloomington Women's Club, and loved going to The Barn Dinner Theater and the ARC Activity and Recreation Center.

She could often be found in her favorite chair, knitting an afghan or weaving a basket, and she loved bringing her family together on Friday nights for pizza.

The family would like to thank the staff of Heritage Health for their care and compassion over the past two years.
