Saline Native Richard Schaible, Husband, Father of 2, Worked on the Family Farm


Richard Leon Schaible, age 71, of Ann Arbor, Michigan passed away peacefully at home with his family by his side on Wednesday, February 21, 2024.

Richard was born on May 22, 1952 in Saline, Michigan to the late Leon and Esther (Wolfe) Schaible.

Richie took over the family farm when he was 25 and spent his life working the farm and teaching his children and grandchildren about what mattered most – putting your heart into whatever you do and showing up for those you love. He was always a kid at heart with a great sense of humor and could make you laugh at any given moment. He was known for his great dance moves and spinning his wife around the dance floor. He loved sports of all kinds, especially Michigan – Go Blue! He passed along his passion for sports to his children and grandchildren and enjoyed attending as many of their athletic events as possible.

He is survived by his beloved wife, Jody (Munsell) Schaible, whom he married on September 3, 1977; his two children Michelle (Jason) Miner of Pinckney and Jason (Summer) Schaible of Saline; his five grandchildren Jayden Schaible, Jacob Miner, Cameron Schaible, Justin Miner, and Paige Schaible; his brother John (Deneine) Schaible; his father-in-law Everett “Keith” Munsell; and a host of extended family and friends who will cherish his memory. He was preceded in death by his parents Leon and Esther Schaible, his nephew Christopher Schaible, and his mother-in-law Jean Munsell. He was a member of Salem Evangelical Lutheran Church in Ann Arbor.
