PUNTA GORDA, FLA. — June Schneider, 92, of Port Charlotte, Fla. died Friday at Life Care Center in Punta Gorda.
She was born June 30, 1915 in Cleveland.

She had a natural talent for music and enjoyed playing the piano and singing. She shared her songs and cheerful nature with all who knew her. She will be remembered for her love of music and interest in people.
She is survived her daughters, Joan (Earl) Sengstock of Port Charlotte and Sally (Richard) Mumford of Jacksonville, Fla.; a son, Jim (Cindy) Schneider of Sebring, Fla.; several grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
