Anne Christine Schneck


Anne Christine Schneck, 46, of Colorado Springs, CO, died June 7, in her home. Born September 25, 1972, she was the daughter of Janice Ann (Frett) Schneck and Frederick Albert Schneck, Jr. of Clinton, Iowa. Never happy in a job that did not assist those less fortunate than herself, Anne worked in the Colorado Springs area as a social worker. She was also passionate for the musical and theatrical arts, having been active in various theater groups and choirs for much of her life. Her singing was particularly beautiful; a voice which can never be forgotten.

A single mom, the light of her life was her beloved son, Joseph.

In her early adulthood, Anne was active in local Iowa and Illinois theater, taking on a number of roles at the Clinton Showboat and elsewhere, including the role of Mother Superior in musical Sound of Music at the Circa 21 Theater. She assisted in the formation of a Christian acting troop in Clinton, for local high school students, to inspire them further in the arts. She was also active in the church choir for Prince of Peace Parish in Clinton. During these years, she was employed working for the Salvation Army in Sterling, Illinois. Her dramatic soprano voice was heard at many weddings, often featuring a rich solo of Ave Maria. Her siblings remember especially the beauty of her singing around the house with her mother, Janice.

Enjoying travel with her son, visits to the Garden of the Gods, Crystal Cavern, Gettysburg, were among her fondest memories. And, she especially loved theme parks - the rollercoasters, the atmosphere of many of the parks, and the lazy river rides, but by the end of the day it always the rollercoasters that called her back.

In 2010, Anne moved to Colorado Springs, an attempt at a new lease on life following the passing of her parents. Ever enthralled by her memories of vacations past, she loved the mountains, the people, and the atmosphere of Colorado. While in Colorado she completed her degree in social work and in that vocation worked in a number of projects for those in need, including working for a food bank, for low income housing, and providing care for at risk children. She found joy in helping the most marginalized and vulnerable.

Anne had a special love of angels, collecting statues and art that reminded her of the angels among us. She very much enjoyed reading, especially stories of mystery, adventure, and romance. She loved animals of every kind, especially cats, and found comfort in their company.

Preceded in death by her parents, Anne is survived by her beloved son, Joseph, her four brothers -- Eric Schneck of Huntsville, AL, Greg Schneck of Yorktown, VA, Paul Schneck of Deatsville, AL, Stephen Schneck of Washington, DC, her aunts Virginia Yoder of Aurora, IL, and Georgia Clifton, of Deatsville, AL, and her uncle, Richard Frett of Camanche, IA. Services will be held in Clinton, Iowa, at a later date.

Anne was a student of mine at Mount St. Clare in Clinton and shared a role in "My Fair Lady" on the Clinton Showboat one summer.
I loved Anne for her lovely voice and her real dedication to the arts. Her love of her son was so sincere and loving. I am sorry her life has so soon closed.
The family will be in my prayers along with my Franciscan sisters.

My thoughts and my prayers are with your family. Our friendship began in high school. I will always fondly remember working with Anne in theatre there. Her smile and her laughter could lift any spirit. It is no surprise that she dedicated her life to helping others. My deepest condolences to you all.
