Charity was born Sept. 30, 1945, in Cedar Rapids, the daughter of Fred and Emily (Tomas) Philipp. She graduated from Notre Dame Academy in North Omaha, Neb., in 1964. Charity was united in marriage to Terry Ray Schneekloth on June 1, 1968, at St. Ludmila Catholic Church in Cedar Rapids. She worked at Park Lane Root Beer Stand, Collins Radio, Square D, and retired from Wilson Foods/Farmstead in 1990. Charity then became a religious educator and the housekeeper for the priests of St. Ludmila. She was a member of several circles at St. Ludmila and a lifelong, devoted member of the St. Ludmila Parish.

She enjoyed cheering for the St. Louis Cardinals and loved to do puzzles in the morning. She liked scratch off lotto tickets and was always hoping for a winner. Charity enjoyed baking kolaches for the St. Ludmila Kolache Festival. She loved fall and enjoyed making blankets for friends and family. Charity was a collector of many things, such as cardinal figurines and Precious Moments. Above all, she loved being with her family and was an especially devoted grandmother and godmother.
