Dorothy Jean Snyder

May 19, 1919 – Oct. 5, 2017Snyder, Dorothy

In loving memory of our mother, Dorothy Snyder, whose earthly life ended Oct. 5th – 2017. She was born May 19th, 1919 in Bixby Oklahoma to Thomas and Frona Coonce. After her family moved to Rocky Oklahoma and she graduated high school she met and married our dad Roland “Bud” Snyder on June 24th, 1941. They made their home in Oklahoma City and together had five children – Loren, Carolyn, Gary, Linda, and Tommy. Mom was a great cook, a good gardener and an accomplished seamstress and she loved to fish! Dementia removed the spirit of our Mom in her last years, leaving us with only memories of the great mother she was. She is preceded in death by her husband Roland, her sons Gary and Loren, her grandson Todd and great-grandson Avery. She will be lovingly remembered by her three children Carolyn and son-in-law Gerald Childers of Edmond Oklahoma, Linda and son-in-law Russell Carroll of Claremore Oklahoma, and Tom and daughter-in-law Angie Snyder of Oklahoma City. Nine grandchildren, eighteen great-grandchildren and 2 great-great-grandchildren. Graveside services will be held Wednesday October 11th at 2:00 p.m. at Memorial Park Cemetery in Oklahoma City.
