Alberta B. "Belle" Schneider was born on May 18, 1926 in Sidney, to Frank Ridgeway and Janna (Scharrel) Fletcher. Belle devoted her life to being a homemaker and mother and worked briefly at Memorial Hospital.

She graduated from Lodgepole High School in 1944 and attended Chadron State College that same summer. Belle was confirmed in the Lodgepole Lutheran Church in 1945.

On Oct. 8, 1945, she married Lewis W. Schneider and they spent most of their lives together in Sidney.

Belle Schneider was preceded in death by her loving husband of 58 years, her parents and her brother William.

Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?" John 11: 25-26 NIV
