Siblings include Rose Schneider of Washington, D.C., Theresa Eubank (Cliff) of Crescent Springs, Kentucky, Chris Rider (Gary) of Crescent Springs, Kentucky, Joe Schneider (Cathy) of Beavercreek, Ohio, Tom Schneider (Shaun) of Fort Wright, Kentucky, Mary Ruberg (Don) of Edgewood, Kentucky, Philip Schneider of Crescent Springs, Kentucky, Pat Helmer (Steve) of Ludlow, Kentucky, and Paul (Paul) of Leesburg, Virginia.
