August 8, 1946 – February 10, 2023
Ann Schneider, loving mother, wife, friend, and grandmother, passed away at age 76 on Feb. 10, 2023. Born to Dorothy and Holmes Fowler on August 8, 1946, Ann graduated from Woodward High School and obtained her BA in English Literature from Ohio Wesleyan University. She helped countless families and children through her long career as a skilled and caring social worker in foster care and adoption. She was happiest spending time with her family, and is survived by her husband, Jerry, her son, Matt (Jessie Johnson), her daughter, Sarah Fullen (Scott), and grandson, Eli. She was preceded in death by both of her parents, her brother, Lee Fowler, and her stepmother, Margaret Fowler.
Ann was a beloved part of her circle of friends who, after decades of loyal friendship, considered each other sisters. She was a voracious reader and rarely missed a meeting of her monthly book club. An extremely talented seamstress, she created and donated beautifully intricate doll outfits for the Salvation Army Toy Shop Auxiliary. As a young woman, she was a gifted and passionate ballet dancer and, later in life, stayed active and strong with her Pilates practice. Her love of theatre led her and Jerry to frequently volunteer as ushers at the Cincinnati Playhouse.
Ann adored animals, from her “grand-pups” to the deer family who lived in her backyard, and even the bears she encountered in the Great Smoky Mountains. She loved spending time outdoors, and exploring mountains and beaches with her family and friends. Her unwavering kindness, outstanding sense of humor, and love of fun and adventure were contagious.
A celebration of Ann’s life will be held at Drees Pavilion in Devou Park on Sunday, February 19th at 1 pm. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation in her honor to the Library Foundation of Cincinnati and Hamilton County or to the Salvation Army of Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky.
