Virginia "Ginger" Reynolds Snitz

August 2, 1954June 22, 2020

Charlotte - Virginia "Ginger" Reynolds Snitz passed away peacefully in her sleep on June 22, 2020 after a five year battle with melanoma. Ginger was born in Wadesboro, NC on August 2, 1954 to the late Frank Reynolds and Mary Furr Reynolds Garris.

Ginger grew up in Albemarle, NC. After graduating from high school in 1972, she received an Associate Registered Nurse degree from Central Piedmont Community College. Her nursing career began at Charlotte Memorial Hospital. After several years, she left the hospital to join her husband to start Snitz Pediatrics as Head Nurse, Office Manager, and board certified Lactation Consultant. She worked there until retirement in 2015.

Ginger was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother. She enjoyed spending time with her family and vacationing. Ginger was an active member of Temple Israel of Charlotte, where she served as President of Sisterhood twice, member of the Temple Board, and volunteer on several committees. She enjoyed singing in the choir and helping others.

Ginger is survived by her husband of 39 years, Arnold Snitz; daughter, Leslie Smith Turner of Concord, NC; grandson, Sgt. Cameron A. Smith, U.S. Army-Colorado Springs; sisters, Betty Lambert (Frank) and Frances Johnson; and brother, Larry Garris (Mary).

We greatly appreciate the doctors and nursing staff at Atrium Levine Cancer Institute for their care and compassion.

Dr Snitz and Family. I am so sorry to hear about Ginger's passing.
I remember how kind she always was when we had to go in to the clinic. She was a real gem and always so calming and kind.
My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Dr. Snitz and family,
Mark and I were sad to learn of Ginger's battle with cancer. We always enjoyed seeing her and her calm manner was so helpful as a new mom especially. The boys actually enjoyed their checkups, getting their sticker from Ginger and going to the different colored rooms! Know we are thinking of you.

My sympathies and condolences to Ginger’s husband, daughter, grandson, sisters and brother and all family members and friends. I met Ginger at Albemarle Junior High School, we were twelve years old. It was an honor for me to know Ginger and be her classmate and friend. We were both students at CPCC together after high school. I had not seen Ginger in many years until last September 2019 at a class reunion. I’m grateful I got to see her and spend some time with her. She shared her struggles and battle with cancer and I was able to share mine with her. She exhibited the same kindness, grace and dignity that I always remembered. Again, my condolences to her family. I know that you will miss her every day. May God give you peace.

So sorry to hear of Ginger’s passing. She, Arnold, and I go way back to CMC Hospital when we were in the early years of our medical careers. Then Arnold and Ginger took care of my daughter, Ashley, from birth to age 20 @ Snitz’s Pediatrics. May all the many and beautiful lifetime memories you created and shared together help to carry you through this difficult time.

Peace & Love,
Susan Davies

Dear Dr. Snitz and family,
Our family was so sad to hear of Ginger's passing. Ginger helped care for our two sons in your office from their births through college. She started by coming to the hospital just after Scott's birth to teach me about caring for a new baby. I will always remember her amazing calm and her beautiful, sweet face. Our family was blessed by the care Ginger and you and everyone in the office provided us through all of those years. We are saying prayers for your family as you adjust to this huge loss.
Susan, John, Scott, and Nicholas (Nick) Lemmon

Ginger has had a place in my heart for over 20 years. The days I saw her were good days because of the love, the laughter, and her sheer radiance. I will miss her and she will forever have that place in my heart.
Love and comfort to all her family and friends.
