Verde Ann Schneider was born on June 29, 1928 to Frank and Frances (Andres) Schneider in Little Falls, MN. The family lived in Randall where Verde attended elementary school. She attended and graduated from Little Falls Community High School with the class of 1946. Verde Ann married the love of her life, William "Bill" Mahling, on July 8, 1948 at St. James Catholic Church in Randall. The couple first made their home in Randall then Little Falls.
Verde was passionate about serving others during her life. She worked at St. Gabriel's Hospital for years. She was active and involved in many organizations and groups. Her door was always open to family and friends. With a strong cup of coffee and a good piece of pie, she listened to, laughed with and loved the people who came through her door. Verde enjoyed the simple things in life: reading, bowling, traveling, fishing trips to Canada; time playing cards, trying new recipes and was the best baker. She was an avid dog lover and spoiled every dog she owned. More than anything, Verde Ann treasured her time spent with family especially her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Verde is survived by children: Steve Mahling of Cushing; Terry Mahling (and Rob Schmidt) of Minneapolis; Maureen (and Michael) O'Brien of Loomis, CA,; siblings, Robert Schneider of Arizona; Mary (and Al) McKeown of Kentucky; William "Bill" (and Jennifer) Schneider of Ontario; grandchildren, Erin (and Matt) Cox; Ryan Mahling (and Phuong Tran); Colin (and Becca) O'Brien; Allison (and Mike) Ryan and Sean (and Brooke) O'Brien; great-grandchildren, George and Verde Ann Cox, Andie O'Brien and Callum Ryan.
