Condolences To Schniederjon Family




Frank H. Schniederjon, 91, of Effingham, retired attorney and a U.S. Army veteran of World War II, died on Saturday at 12:50 p.m. at his home.


Mr. Schniederjon was active in the practice of law in Effingham for many decades.

He graduated from the University of Illinois and first became licensed to practice law on November 9, 1942.  He served as City Attorney for the City of Effingham from 1947 – 1960 and as was elected twice as State’s Attorney of Effingham County from 1960 – 1968.  He founded the law firm now known as Schniederjon, Weber & Orr.


He was preceded in death by his only son, the late Judge Frank G. Schniederjon.  Survivors include his wife, Genevieve, and daughter, Nila Weber.


The funeral will be held Wednesday at 10:00 a.m. at St. Anthony of Padua Church in Effingham.  Visitation is scheduled for Tuesday from 4:00 – 7:00 p.m. at Bauer Funeral Home, 1212 W. Evergreen Ave., in Effingham.  For more information, please contact the funeral home at 217-342-2177.



[Although I did not know Mr. Schniederjon well, I always will remember the compassion that he demonstrated to a fellow practitioner who had suffered a stroke and was residing in a local nursing home in the mid-1990s].
