Another long lost cousin checking in to express condolences...I am Ted and Norma Snyder's daughter. AKA "The Girl" among Ted's 5 sons. We all remember Bev fondly. She always had a smile for everyone.

I am so sorry for your loss. I remember Beverly as being one in a million. We didn't see each other often but it was a pleasure when we did. In case you don't recognize who I am, I am the daughter of Robert and Gertrude Snyder. The sister of the late Marianne Colling and Tom Snyder my brother.

When I was in high school I worked at McDonalds. Uncle Jack would drive through and order 2 medium diet cokes for him and Aunt Bev, he would drive through a few times a week ❤️

Bev was my Godmother. And although I never knew her very well, I know that she always prayed for me.
I will keep her and the Willing Family in my thoughts and prayers.
