Snoda was the fourth child born to CW "Bill" Shurtz and Cora Marshall Shurtz. As a baby, she moved with her family from Missouri to Lyman, Wyoming, where she and her family lived on a ranch. When she was about 10 years old, the family sold their property and moved to Stevinson, California, where they bought a farm and where she grew to adulthood. She married Perry Northup in 1920. They had two children, Gene and Carol. After Perry's death in 1944, she made her way as a single mother, keeping the family's farm operating for a time, then moving to Oakland where she worked at JC Penney's for a number of years.

In 1964 Snoda married Milton Wilson, the widower of her sister, Bess. They lived at his home in Fullerton until Milton's death in 1972. Snoda then moved to Modesto where she lived in her own home, enjoying visits with her family and friends. She loved to tell stories about her parents, her brothers and sisters and their experiences in the "Stevinson Colony".
