Betty A. Young-Schneider

Betty Ann Young-Schneider, age 74, of Farley, Iowa, completed her earthly journey on December 28, 2020, at her loving sister Mary’s home in Dickeyville, Wisconsin.  To honor Betty’s life, a private family service is being held.  The Tri-State Cremation Center is humbly serving Betty’s family.


Betty was born on October 14, 1946, in Balkow, Missouri, a daughter to Katherine (Seifert) Graves.  Betty’s family eventually made their way to Dubuque, where she met George Young.  The couple was united in marriage in 1965 and soon blessed with 2 children, Lynn Marie Young and Dale William Young.  Betty invested many of her working years at the Bar-X, before finally moving to Finley Hospital where she spent her final years until retirement.  She was also blessed with many wonderful years with her 2nd husband, Don Schneider.  Betty possessed a continuous quick wit and contagious sense of humor which the memories of will surely help to bring healing into the hearts of all who knew and loved her.  We are grateful for the opportunity to spend one last Christmas together and may peace find its way into our days ahead as we wait to see our dear Betty once again.
