SHIRLEY J. (WADDELL) SCHNEKENBURGER 1-2-1931 to 8-2-2014 Shirley passed away suddenly from a heart attack while visiting her son in El Dorado, CA. Shirley was the most loved individual that anyone could be associated with. Shirley was a native of Riverside. She was one of ten children, five brothers and four sisters, in the Waddell family. She graduated from Riverside Poly High School in 1948. Shortly after graduation, she met her husband, Joseph, a SGT. from March A.F.B. They were married in 1948 and were together for sixty-five years. They had four children, Joseph III, born at March A.F.B., Gary Lee, born at Clark Air Force Base in the Philippines (deceased 1998), Linda Kay born in Fort Devens, Massachusetts, and Craig Todd, born in Chateauroux Air Force Base, France. During their Air Force career, the family traveled to the Philippines, Germany, France, Texas, and England for a total of 22½ years. She has seven grandchildren and seven great grandchildren. She was an accomplished homemaker, extremely good cook, seamstress, carpenter, and car mechanic. She was loved by everyone and was a very caring person. She will be buried at Riverside National Cemetery on 8-14-14 at 2pm. As per her request there will be no viewing. There will be graveside services only. A gathering of family and friends will be held immediately after the service. Her grandson, Daniel, will present a video of her life at that time.
