Lynn M. Snyder


Lynn M. Snyder, 67, of Line Street, Sunbury, passed away peacefully on Sunday, Aug. 11, 2019, at the Geisinger Medical Center.
She was born June 20, 1952, in Sunbury, a daughter of the late Elwood and Phyllis (Lehman) Hummel. She is survived by the love of her life, Ronald W. Snyder who she married on June 28, 2008.

Lynn was a 1970 graduate of Line Mountain High School. She spent her life caring for others as a mother and nurse. She began her career in nursing as an LPN. She furthered her nursing career by becoming a registered nurse in 1992, graduating from the Geisinger School of Nursing. Most of her nursing career was spent caring for children at the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit at Geisinger in Danville. Her caring heart touched many children's lives and the lives of their families, during her years as a pediatric critical care nurse. She also lovingly cared for many people, both young and old, through her service as a member of the Pediatric Surgery team and as a Home Health nurse with Geisinger.

In addition to her husband, Lynn is survived by three sons, one daughter, three stepsons and 16 grandchildren: son, Robert Davies, wife Tara, and their children, Ahlena, Ian and Chloe, of Danville; daughter, Heather Edmonds, husband Lon Jr., and their children, Willow and Wren of Bloomsburg; son, James Davies, wife Heather, and their children, Caeden, Keagen and Gwendolynn of Port Trevorton; and her youngest son, Sean Davies of Danville. Lynn is also survived by stepson, Christopher Snyder, his wife Ranae, and their children, Hayden and Kelsey of Spotsylvania, Va.; stepson, Jeremy Snyder, his wife Kelli, and their children, Ava, Lucy, Sophie and Sally of State College; and stepson, Chad Snyder, his daughter Madison of Sunbury, and his son Maxwell of South Carolina; one brother, Randy Hummel and his wife Laura Rivero of Coral Gables, Fla.; and two sisters, Lisa Weston, and her husband Dave Hummel of Northumberland, and Lori Hummel of Bel Air, Md.

A visitation will be held in Lynn's memory from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 15, at St. Monica's Parish, Sunbury, followed by a memorial Mass of Christian Burial at 2:30, with Father Fred Wangwe AJ as celebrant.
Burial will be private.
Lynn's compassion for children and animals was well known and very important to her. Therefore, in lieu of flowers, the family requests contributions be made to a local animal shelter or the Children's Miracle Network in her memory.

Lynn and I were best friends until I moved away. Since I moved back to Norry, so many times I thought of contacting her but never found the time. I so regret not doing it and now she is gone. Everybody take note, don't wait, take the time to reach out to somebody. If you wait too long you may not get that chance.
Lynn, you will be greatly missed by anybody who knew you.
Prayers to all of the family!

I was a classmate of Lynn's at Line Mountain. I met her when I was in 7th grade. She was always a fun person to be around with a neat sense of humor. Her nickname back then was "Conifer". It had something to do with a science lesson. I don't think that I ever saw her angry or upset.
She was a bubbly fun person to be around. It sounds like she grew up to be a fantastic woman and an angel to many. I'm proud to have known her.

Prayers and my deepest sympathies, to the family of Lynn. She holds a very dear place in my heart. When I started out in the nursing field she was one of my mentors. I hold and will cherish those memories, close to my heart. God has called you home Lynn, Rest In Peace.

I worked with Lynn for only a short time at Geisinger Home Health but I was very impressed by her compassion for her patients. She always went the extra mile and was an advocate for them above all things. She was a kind and caring soul and will be truly missed by all who knew her. Deepest sympathies to all her family.

Amazing woman. I'll never forget the time my mom dropped a plate on my foot and it cut me open pretty deep. Lynn patched me all up and got me ready for the next big accident. Never forget you❤️💔
