Eldora Belle Snider Xanthis Obituary
ELDORA BELLE SNIDER XANTHIS was born September 23, 1931 in Riverside, CA, the daughter of Robert Griffee Snider and Gertrude May (Wagner) Snider and granddaughter of Charles Wesley Snider and Viola Belle Nichols Snider and Charles Frederick Wagner and Eldora Susan Shute Wagner. She passed away, October 12, 2015 at Birch Tree, MO at the age of 84 years, as the result of a stroke. She was united in marriage to Theodore Anthony Xanthis in Yuma, AZ in 1951 and to this union one daughter was born. She was preceded in death by her parents Robert and Gertrude Snider; one brother Robert Snider, and two sisters Marjorie (Snider) Mapes and Muriel (Snider) Cordier. She is survived by one daughter Sylvia Hathaway and husband Robert of Winona, MO; two brothers Carl Snider of Santa Rosa, CA and Ralph Snider and wife Mary, who lived in Riverside, CA for many years; and numerous nieces, nephews and other family and friends. Eldora received her Associate Degree from Riverside City College. She worked as a data entry clerk for Bourns Inc. in Riverside California for many years. Eldora lived in Louisiana for several years prior to moving to Birch Tree, MO in 2009 to be close to her daughter Sylvia. Eldora enjoyed listening to bluegrass and folk music, reading, working crossword puzzles, and researching genealogy and history. She was shy and quiet, but had a good sense of humor and was a devoted mother. She was an intelligent woman who qualified to join MENSA, but chose not to join the association. She loved animals, especially dogs and cats, and the animals found a true friend with her. Memorial services will be planned at a later date. Arrangements were under the direction of Duncan Funeral Home of Winona, MO. Online condolences can be sent to www.duncanfuneralhomes.com
