Thank you so much for searching the cemetery for her headstone. I am very saddened to know that she doesn't have one. I guess that since she had no children, out-lived all of her siblings, husband, and parents, there was just no one to purchase a headstone for her. I was so impressed by her obituary. Her husband Fred Tolbert's first wife was my Great Great Aunt. I am not even related to this person and I'm feeling like I should try to get her a small stone. Thanks again,

I'm not related, but it seems you've duplicated a memorial that I created Aug 05, 2003. I've deleted mine. Jim
Pearl C. Knudsen Snyder
Pearl C. Snyder, age 92, of Batavia, IL, passed away peacefully, Monday morning, August 4, 2003 at the Wood Glen Pavilion Care Center, West Chicago, IL, after a brave battle with declining health.
She was born August 21, 1910 in Chicago, IL, the daughter of Hans and Petria (Jensen) Knudsen. Pearl grew up in Maple Park where she attended local schools.
On December 2, 1931, she was united in marriage to Perry Snyder at Dixon, IL and they settled in Maple Park. In later years, they lived for a time in the DeKalb-Sycamore area until about 1940 when they moved to St. Charles, IL. In 1953 they moved to Batavia where they made their home until Perry's death in 1991. In the years that followed Pearl continued to make her home in Batavia until 1997 when her battles with declining health required greater care and she moved to the Wood Glen Pavilion near West Chicago, IL.
Through the years, Pearl worked at a little grocery store on Third Street in St. Charles and later worked at Colonial Ice Cream and at Dole Electric, Batavia. She volunteered at the Batavia V.F.W. Fish Fry as well for many years. Pearl's whole life was devoted to her husband and family. She loved to dance and spent many happy evenings with Perry at the Blue Moon in Elgin. From babysitting to helping the sick, Pearl was the family caregiver throughout the generations. She was, in her mind, ageless in such a way that even at 90, she sometimes complained about living around so many "old" people at Wood Glen.
She is survived by four daughters, Patricia (David) Nielsen of Marion, KY, Priscilla Peterson of North Aurora, IL, Phyllis (Al) Pollard of Batavia, IL and Peggy Leathers of Sugar Grove, IL; one son, Perry N. (Shirley) Snyder of Piedmont, AL; eight grandchildren, Kelly Pollard, Karla Carpenter, Matthew and Katrina Leathers, Steven, Scott, and Michael Snyder and Jodi (Michael) Sharpe, five great grandchildren, Anthony, Matthew, Tyler, Kaitlin and Logan, one great great granddaughter, Autumn, several nieces and one nephew and her long-time friend Loretta Christensen of Maple Park.
Preceded by her parents, her husband, one brother, Alfred Knudsen, one son-in-law William Peterson and one granddaughter, Robin Garrett.
Friends may call at Conley Funeral Home, 116 Pierce St., Elburn, from 4-7 p.m. Wednesday, August 6, 2003. Funeral services will be held Thursday, August 7 at 10 a.m. at the funeral home where the Rev. Richard Watts, pastor of the First Baptist Church, Batavia will officiate. Interment will follow at Gardner Cemetery near Maple Park.
In lieu of flowers, memorials in Pearl's name may be made to either the Salvation Army Golden Diners or to Vitas Hospice and mailed in care of P.O. Box 66, Elburn, IL 60119.
