Obituary: Teruko Schneider

Teruko Schneider (nee Uehara) passed away on March 6 at home peacefully, surrounded by family. She was 89. 

She was originally from a farming village in Okinawa and then settled down in Moorestown, where she lived for more than 60 years. She had worked at The Lutheran Home at Moorestown for many years. She will be remembered for always having a smile on her face and a kind, loving heart. The front door to her home was open to everyone, and she was fondly called “Ma” by many, many family friends.

Teruko was preceded in death by her daughter Nancy Stevens. She is survived by her son Thomas Schneider (Kathleen) and daughters Susan White, Carol Narbut and Ann Schneider. She is also survived by six grandchildren: Robert (Bo), Laura, James, Kellie, Deanna and Jessika; her sister-in-law June Neubert and niece Samantha. She will be dearly missed by everyone.

A memorial service will be held on a future date. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made in Teruko’s memory to the charity of the donor’s choice.
