Mary Alice (Watkins) Snyder
April 2, 1944 – March 9, 2018
Mary Alice, “Marce”, (Prigmore Watkins) Snyder (age 73 of Round Rock) went to be with her Lord on Friday, March 9, 2018. Marce passed away peacefully while surrounded by her loving family. She was born the daughter of Rolla Sears & Willie Lorena (Edwards) Prigmore on April 2, 1944 in Fort Worth, Texas. Marce is preceded in death by her parents, her in-laws (Leo and LaRue Watkins of Glen Rose), her sister (Laura Jean Pope of Fort Worth), and her organ donor (Allen Ehney of San Antonio).
She is survived by her daughter Wendy (Watkins) Boggs of Round Rock and son, David Watkins of Lake Buchanan, as well as sisters Dorothy Carter of North Richland Hills, Wanda Green of Australia, Margaret Morries of Fort Worth, Linda Beard of San Antonio, brother Robert Prigmore of Fort Worth, three grandchildren (Abigail Boggs of Round Rock, Bradley Watkins of Wichita Falls, and Kara Watkins of Stephenville), three great grandchildren, and numerous loving nieces and nephews. She was a loving mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend. Marce lived in Killeen for over thirty years where she raised her children and worked for the school district. She considered many of the students who passed through Nolan Middle School like her own kids throughout the years and continued to open her heart and offer encouragement to all she met throughout her lifetime. Marce was a graduate of Texas A&M University and was a member of the First Baptist Church of Georgetown. Her beautiful smile matched her Christ-like spirit. She lived her life in service to the Lord, her family and others. Her contributions made this world a better place and she will continue to inspire all who knew her. Marce enjoyed singing, playing board games, baking for others, working on word search puzzles, and especially yelling at the television while watching football! More than anything, she enjoyed spending time at the beach and quality time with her family and friends. She was known for her warm heart, her loving smile, her abundant hugs, her giving nature, and her beautiful spirit. She will be missed by all of those who love her. Friends are invited to a celebration of life service on Saturday, April 7th, 2018, at 2:00pm. The ceremony will be held in the Worship Center of the First Baptist Church of Georgetown: 1333 W. University Avenue, Georgetown, TX 78628 (http://www.fbcgt.org/) .

To Wendy and David,
I worked with Marce at the State. (14 years) . She trained me and always was very patient with me. Marce knew how to throw a party. And her cooking was so good! My heart is sad to know you left us so early in life. My prayers go out to all of your family. May you be at peace now!

There are endless memories of Mary Alice’s giving nature and our times of laughter. She was the Heartbeat of our front office at Nolan Middle School. Her love was endless and her laughter would warm your heart. She would do anything for anyone. We spent so much time together building memories, and for that, I am very thankful! Until we meet again! Don’t forget to Fluff!!!

To: Marcie & Family
I want to express my sincere condolences to this family. I met Marcie while we both were on Dailysis. However Praise be to God for his Grace for her to receive a " Kidney". Marcie was so very very sweet and NICE to me as well as to my wife. I will never forget she told me, "Gary" don't call me Ms.Snyder....Call me Marcie.
I will truly miss her so very much. My Bible tells me to be absent from the body is to be present with God. This really shocked me and hurt me deep inside. However we all have to remember that God is still good. There is an old Gospel song that I leave with you all."”""Soon we will all be done with the troubles of this old world"""May God shine his love upon all of you......Gary E. Hogan

Marce thank you for all of your words of encouragement over the years. I'll miss our texts during Texas Aggie football games and just texts to check on me like I was one of your children. I will always remember our trip to Marble Falls, to meet Jen, and laughing at how fast you drove for a little woman; our trip to College Station, where we ate burgers at the Chicken Oil, walked the campus, and shopped at Aggieland Outfiters, where I bought the sign that says College Station is my happy place. You agreed on that buy and it was a great idea! I miss you so much and will never forget you, friend. Now fly high with the angels and Gig'em!
Love you Always,

Mary Alice and family were our next door neighbors at the lake for several years. And more than that, close friends. Wendy and my daughter Jennifer were playmates spending so much time together at each other’s homes.
I remember keeping Wendy the day David was born. So many good memories I will cherish!
Mary Alice was a beautiful lady, inside and out ...always smiling! And now a beautiful Angel !
Sweet Wendy, we sent our love and prayers at this sad time! God Bess You!

Thank you Marce for accepting me & my Mom into your life. You were a true blessing to me through this past year & helped me heal on so many levels. I will always treasure our conversations, our lunches, our text messages, our laughs and our sharing of recipes. I thank you for staying up late with me on my late flights to make sure I arrived safely. We could not have hand picked a better person to join our family!
I will miss our text messages during our Fighting Texas Aggie Football Games! There will never be a bigger fan than you! I will see you again & know I love you!
Gig 'em My Friend & God Bless.
All My Love, Jen Gillis
