Susan was born on November 30, 1949 in Sioux City, Iowa to Charles E. and Avon (Morley) McKnight.  She received her education in Sioux City before her marriage to Milo “Rich” Schnee on June 15, 1968 at the Whitfield Methodist Church in Sioux City.  With an exception of one year in Mannheim, Germany, while Rich served in the country, Susan was a life-long resident of Sioux City.  

Susan worked in retail, and was the final inspector at Pech Optical before her retirement.  She enjoyed being a Girl Scout Leader, and helped revitalize the PTA at Cooper School in Sioux City.  She had hobbies of crocheting, baking, fishing, camping, but found her greatest joy in watching her children play sports.
