Virginia Elizabeth Snyder
Virginia Elizabeth Snyder of Camp Hill, passed over in the early morning of Nov. 24, 2019, joining her beloved husband, William E.B. Snyder, and her parents, Arla and Howard Troup. She was 90 years old.
She was born in a house built by her grandfather in Selinsgrove.

Virginia graduated from high school in Beavertown and settled with her husband in Wilmington, Del., to raise her family, returning in 1976 to the Harrisburg area.

Her abiding passion was her family, her husband, Bill; her children, Kathleen S. Johnson and David T. Snyder and wife, Deborah; her grandchildren, Carey F. Stavrevski, Christa H. MacFarlane, and Jessica L. Boyer; and her great-granchildren, Keyanna Mims, Bryan MacFarlane, Alex Stavrevski, Brody Stavrevski, Gianna Stavrevski, Joshua Boyer and Jenna Boyer.

Because she was the most generous of women, generous with her time and attention as well as her belongings, she made those she encountered her family too. She and Bill hosted many AFS and foreign students from the University of Delaware. Those they housed 55 years ago still phone weekly, particularly Judith Byrne and family from Lytham St. Annes, England and Chukiat Pinijchob of Lampang, Thailand. Virginia greeted adversity with patience and fortune with gratitude. We will miss her example and her love.

A visitation will be held from 10 to 11 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 30, at the V.L. Seebold Funeral Home, 601 N. High St., Selinsgrove, followed by the funeral at 11, with the Rev. Sarah M. Keilholt officiating.
Burial will be in Orchard Hills Cemetery, Shamokin Da.

If you wish to bring a remembrance other than flowers, please make a donation to the Salvation Army, the charity she had chosen this season.
