Inge H. Schachtschneider, age 86, passed away August 3, 2017, at 4:15 pm, at Liberty Health Care. Inge was born October 16, 1930 in Berlin, Germany to Kurt and Johanna (Schaffarzyk) Jordan who preceded her in death. On September 4, 1948 she married the love of her life, Horst Schachtschneider who preceded her in death on September 22, 2015.
In 1963 she and her husband, with their two children and one on the way, traveled to the United States in search of a better life. They settled in Lima and they have lived here ever since. Inge was a friend to many at the Shawnee Country Club. She had worked there for 40 years in many different capacities. She loved her bar tending years and was the best hostess ever. She also loved reading stories to the children at Christmas time as she played Mrs. Claus. Inge enjoyed entertaining and cooking. Most of all she loved spending time and playing poker with her family. She will be remembered for her spunkiness and her witty humor.
Inge is survived by her children; Nancy (Shawn) Croft, of Lima, OH and Uwe (Marcy) Schachtschneider of FL, 5 grandchildren; Samantha (Nick) Gruber of Lima, OH, Alexis Croft of Lima, OH, Hans Schaschtschneider of Nashville, TN, Kris (Amy) Schachtschneider of TN and Nick Schachtschneider, a great grandson, Aden Gruber, a brother, Wilfried (Doris) Jordan of Lima, OH, a sister in-law, Elvira (Charles) Whiting of Lima, OH, a favorite niece, Angie (Barry) Clark of Lima, OH, a great niece, Katie Clark, several other nieces and nephews and a special friend, Donna (Rex) Hawkins, of Lima. She was preceded in death by her son, Lothar Schachtschneider and a sister, Helga (Leonard) Weaver.
At the request of Inge, there will be no public services held. There will be a private family service at a later date.
