Mrs. Snyder had strength and stamina to have survived teaching us at CHJH ! I'm glad she lived such a wonderful long life, she was an excellent teacher. I actually managed to learn algebra under her patient guidance. My thoughts and prayers are with her family during this sad time.

My condolences to the family. I had the pleasure of being in Edith's Bible study group and crochet group at Aldersgate when I was a member there. I have surely missed her since moving to Georgia. I always referred to her as "The Energy Bunny" because she just kept on ticking and moving regardless of how she felt.
God certainly has a terrific "ANGEL" with him now!!
God's blessings to the family.

I am so sorry for your loss. I absolutely loved Mrs. Snyder! I had her for 7th grade math and 9th grade algebra. She was one of the reasons I loved CHJH so much. I have thought about her so many times over the years, and enjoyed 'bumping' into her this past year at Chappy's.
