Lynn M. Snyder
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.
