Patricia Ann Duncan SNYDER

1934 - 2015 Obituary Condolences
SNYDER, Patricia Ann Duncan
Patricia Ann Duncan Snyder passed away peacefully on Monday, May 4th in Austin, Texas. Born August 6,1934 in Adamsville, Tennessee to Thomas Duncan and Margaret Story Duncan, her family moved often when Patricia was young but settled in West Memphis, Arkansas so that she could attend (a single) West Memphis High School. During her time on earth, she was a sister, student, stewardess, wife of an Air Force Fighter Pilot, homemaker, Mother of two, Grandmother of two and animal lover. Patricia lived a rich, wonderful, perhaps stoic and quiet life. She was beautiful, intelligent, artistic and strong. Saddled with lung disease due to complications from measles at an early age, she overcame many obstacles to live a full life, raising a family and studying at several universities throughout the United States studying fine art and French. She completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from The University of Texas at Austin in 1981 and her beautiful paintings adorn her home in Southwest Austin. She enjoyed traveling abroad with her husband and was particularly fond of Paris, France and Scotland.

She is preceded in death by her parents, Thomas Duncan and Margaret Story; her son, David Snyder. Patricia is survived by her husband, Colonel Phillip D. Snyder; son, Paul Eric Snyder; sister, Evelyn Sigler; grandchildren, Paul Robert and Emily Rebecca.

Graveside Service will be at the Fort Sam Houston National Cemetery, San Antonio Tx, Tuesday May 12th at 2:00 pm.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests a donation in her honor to The Lady Bird Johnson Wild Flower Center 4801 La Crosse Ave, Austin, TX 78739.
