Aldine Laura (Park) Snyder, age 91, a guest at the DuBois Nursing Home in DuBois, Pa., formerly of Toad Town Road, Summerville, Pa., passed away on Monday, March 27, 2017.
She was born Aug. 27, 1925, in Brookville, the daughter of Humbert E. Park Sr. and Anna R. (Brocious) Park.
At a young age they moved to the family farm off Route 36 in Rose Twp., Jefferson Co., Pa. She was a farm girl, and later was employed with Sylvania, and then the G.C. Murphy store in Brookville.
She met her future husband, John F. Snyder (who passed away on July 18, 2008) at the former Pilgrim Holiness Church in Brookville where she was the pianist, and he was the Sunday School Superintendent. They were married on Sept. 4, 1963, at the Strattanville Pilgrim Church. They were married nearly 45 years.
Aldine was a member of the Pleasant Hill Bible Church in Summerville, Pa., and a devoted Christian, being an avid student of Bible Prophecy. She attended the Crate School in Rose Twp., Jefferson Co., Pa., and was a graduate of the Brookville Area High School Class of 1942, completing her education in 11 years.
She took piano lessons in her youth from Mrs. Harry Shick SR, and played piano at the Nazarene and Pilgrim Holiness Churches in Brookville, and later occasionally at Pleasant Hill Bible Church in Summerville. She played piano for several weddings. She also played the guitar and harmonica, enjoyed family car trips to several states in her youth, gardening, and canning food. She enjoyed completing word find puzzles, and unknown to many, enjoyed watching auto racing.
