Janet L. (Horton) SchneiderAugust 16, 1926 ~ August 2, 2021 (age 94)
The family and friends of Janet Schneider mourn her passing on August 2, 2021 of complications of a stroke. She was two weeks shy of her 95th birthday.
Janet was born on August 16, 1926 in Elyria, Ohio. Upon graduation from high school in 1944, she joined the U.S. Cadet Nurse Corps, and became a registered nurse. She met and married the first love of her life, Henry Schneider, in 1948. They raised two children, Carol and Bill (deceased 1992).
After the family relocated to Pittsburgh in 1963, Janet began working at Presbyterian University Hospital. She was in the first cohort of nurse practitioners to train at Presby, serving her patients with energy, compassion and skill.
Janet lived an adventurous life. Widowed after 34 years of marriage to Henry, she traveled the world. She and second husband Bob Dalecki explored the US. Upon his death, she married Don Stoicovy; passports in hand, they ventured to multiple European countries. The last love of her life was Jim Baney, whom she married at age 84. Together, they also traveled and enjoyed his large, loving family and circle of friends until his passing in 2019.
Above all, Janet is remembered as a woman of faith and an active member of the Lutheran Church. Non-judgmental, she always chose to be warm, kind and gracious to everyone she met. We will miss her energy, joie de vivre, and steadfast example of faith in action.
Janet is survived by her daughter, Carol Schneider (Walt Tauche); their son Dan Tauche and his fiancée Nataleigh Colton; beloved daughter-in-law Linda Schneider and her two children Laura Schneider (Michael Hsu) and Andrew Kemp.
The family requests that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the Animal Rescue League or the charity of your choice. And we acknowledge with great gratitude the caring staff of Redstone Highlands for serving Janet with devotion in her last days.
