6 thoughts on “Schnitzer, Madelyn C.”

  1. I made St. Louis my home in 1988 after I met wife, Carol, the daughter of Clarence & Madelyn Schnitzer. I have always addressed my mother-in-law, as Mom, because she was “my mother” away from home. Mom IS an epitome of a “Mother”. . . For the past 35 years, I emulated my parents-in-law on how they raised their family. Bountiful memories were built on togetherness & quality time spent with each other, at picnics, birthdays, holidays, and travels in and out of the country. On their 60th wedding anniversary, the family ventured on a trip to Alaska. . .Dad Clarence was not there but we all felt his presence. Now that Mom has reunited with him, they finally left a legacy for our family and friends to nurture and live by.

  2. After living 35 years as a neighbor to the the Schintzer family on Cordes Drive, I was greatful to have them as a neighbor. Condolences to the family and God be with you at this time and always.

  3. I did not personally know Mrs. Schnitzer, but in experiencing the great character, warmth, and dynamism of her daughter Carol’s large and beautiful family, especially her granddaughter Crystal and great grandchildren Madelyn, Meredith, and Nolan, I have personally experienced the legacy she has gifted to the world and I am grateful for it.

    Eternal rest grant unto her, O Lord,

    and let perpetual light shine upon her.

    May she rest in peace.
