SNOW Dr. Corinne "Mickey" McLaughlin Snow, who practiced family medicine in Delmar, N.Y. from the 1950s through the 1970s, died in Midvale, Utah of cancer on January 23, 2008. Mickey earned her B.S. in zoology from Mount Holyoke College, magna cum laude, in 1946 and her M.D. from Albany Medical College in 1950. She married Alex W. Snow June 18, 1950. In her medical practice, she tended the sick without regard to payment; made house calls and counseled those in need; volunteered at Planned Parenthood and a street clinic in Albany, N.Y. She helped gain recognition of the dangers of exposure to the chemical PCB. Mickey was a person of intelligence and faith, who provided a living example of Christian values. She believed in equal rights for all, regardless of a race, color, religion, sexual orientation, or lifestyle choices. She remained actively involved in church throughout her life. She also loved nature and the outdoors. She was an avid hiker, backpacker, and skier. She and Alex passed their love of the outdoors to their daughters, teaching them to hike, canoe, ski, and care for the environment. In her later years, Mickey loved to travel and explore back country roads. Mickey moved to Salt Lake City after Alex's death in 1997, to be near her daughters and grandchildren. She spent much of her last year caring for others in her Senior Living Center. Dr. Snow was preceded in death by her parents, Erwin R. and Corinne Reims McLaughlin; her husband, Alex; and her eldest daughter, Karen Mary Snow Larsen. She is survived by daughters, Marit Snow Sawyer and Nanci Snow Bockelie; sons-in-law, Bob Larsen, Mike Bockelie and Eric Sawyer; and grandchildren, Amanda Larsen, Adam Bockelie, Josette Bockelie, Forrest Sawyer and Wesley Sawyer. A memorial service will be held for Mickey on Friday, July 25, 2008 at 3:30 p.m. at the Mountain View Cemetery in West Dover, Vt., followed by a celebration of her life at the house she designed, at 63 Windy Hill Road in West Dover.
