She was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Lee French, early pioneers of Converse and Platte counties. After her marriage in Douglas to George J. Snyder in December of 1904, she lived in Douglas for a few years. Then the family moved to Glendo where Mr. Snyder was postmaster for many years. After his retirement in 1944, Mr. and Mrs. Snyder moved to Casper. She was preceded in death by her husband, who died in 1951. Surviving are two daughters, Mrs. (A. T.) Catherine Covington of Casper and Mrs. (Cleo) Marion Neely of Cheyenne; three sons, George J. Snyder of Lander, Lee Snyder of Trinidad, Colo., and Eugene E.
