Elva Jewel Schneider was a caring mother, grandmother, great grandmother and friend who left this world on December 16, 2020 after a long and fulfilling life. Elva was born on April 26, 1934 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, and was proud of her Cherokee heritage.
Elva started her career at the Interim Home of San Angelo, which was the first step in what became the San Angelo Children's Emergency Shelter. Elva spent more than 20 years providing a safe and loving environment for abused children. Her mentoring and motherly nature, with a down to earth approach, gave children in more than 40 counties a place of safe haven. While working at the Children's Emergency Shelter, Elva worked closely with law enforcement, Child Protective Services, Department of Human Services, CASA, and others to provide the best outcome for these children. At 50 years old Elva completed her GED, an accomplishment of which she was very proud. Elva enjoyed spending time with her family and friends. Elva was an amazing cook and enjoyed spending time in the kitchen, a passion she passed on to her children. She also enjoyed traveling, camping and boating. She enjoyed volunteering at Angelo Civic Theatre and during Christmas at Ole Fort Concho. She had lifelong friends that became her family. Maggie Gomez was like the sister she never had. Liz Diffey and Shirley Sweat were her close friends for over 40 years.
Elva is preceded in death by her sons Bernard Beadling and Charles Geiser. She is survived by her children Jacki Howard, Tammy Jeschke and Tommy Bryant. Her grandchildren Cody Geiser, Jordan Howard, and Haleigh Bryant. She is survived by four great grandchildren Evangeline, and Dominick Williamson, Dalacie Page, and Lena Geiser.
The family wishes to thank Sue Harding for her dedication, care and love that she provided to Elva for several years. Sue you were her best friend until the end! The family wishes to thank Dr. Cornelius Chinn for his endless care and kindness. Thank you to the staff on 5 North at Shannon Hospital and the Palliative Care Services for all their compassion. You are true angels. Elva was an incredible person and will be sorely missed by all. In lieu of flowers the family requests donations be sent to the Children's Advocacy Center of Tom Green County.
