Arlene R. Snyder


Edmond, OKla. — Our mother, Arlene R. Snyder, found peace in the loving arms of Our Lord early Christmas Day, December 25, 2012. Born November 2, 1922 in Haverhill, to the late Marie and Matthew Ryan.

Arlene found the love of her life with our father, Charles E. Snyder Jr. Mom could not resist the handsome man in his Army uniform. Mom and Dad lived in many countries during their Army years. Mom continued her travels after Charlie died. She visited Norway, Egypt and cruised Alaska. Our favorite trip was to Yellowstone where Mom had her first snowmobile ride at age 81. She was always willing to try new adventures. Mom spent her life doing volunteer work and helping charities of all kinds.

Greeting Mom in Heaven is husband Charlie, infant son John, brother Donald and her parents. Left behind to remember her unique spirit are daughters, Jeanne Kline, Mary Wheeler (Russell), Lisa Haugen (Casey), Anne Charron (James); sons, Charles Snyder (Kathy) and Mark Snyder; and childhood friend of 80 years Mary Thayer.

ARRANGEMENTS: Private services will be held at a later date.
