1931 - 2017 Obituary Condolences
August 26, 1931 - October 8, 2017 MOORE Betty Lou (Snook) Snider, the most wonderful, precious, caring, loving and tremendously loved wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, aunt and friend to so many, passed in peaceful sleep to a joyful reunion with her precious son, Curtis E. Snider, and her beloved sister, Wilma Thomas. She was also greeted by many loved ones gone before. She was born in Stroud, OK to David Owen Snook and Eva (Meadors) Snook, who met her in the sky along with her sister, Geraldine Champeau, and brothers, David L. Snook, Owen G. Snook, Forrestt W. Snook, Robert Snook, and Richard R. Snook, as well as four infant siblings she had yet to meet. Betty was a wonderful, loving wife for 68 years to Harry L. Snider, Sr., who survives her. She went to Moore schools, where she caught the eye of many but only let Harry catch her. After a long chase from the eighth grade until the senior year, they married on Aug. 11, 1949, and she began her lifelong career as the best wife and mother in the world. She loved being a stay-at-home mom to her three children and her yet-to-be-raised husband. She thoroughly enjoyed being a sports mom to her sons, especially all the little league games, which included suiting up for Moms vs. Boys games. She was an avid sports fan of her Sooners and Thunder. However, she absolutely thought Larry Bird of the Celtics was her guy! During the years of raising her children and husband, Betty joined The Order of the Eastern Star and became one of Moore Chapter #504's most faithful members. She and Harry served as Worthy Matron and Patron in 1964, and for the past 47 years, Betty served as Treasurer for the chapter. She also had the honor of being selected as the Grand Representative for Oklahoma to Delaware in 1974 and very much enjoyed visiting that state. She was always among the first and most constant supporters and cherished all the friendships she amassed through the years. She was known to many and loved by many more. She was also involved for many years with the Moore Rainbow Girls Assembly #202 and enjoyed working with her girls, several of whom she followed into adulthood and was so proud of. Once all of the kids but Harry left home, she decided to get out of the house and cook for others. She spent over 20 years making great meals for the First Baptist Church of Moore, alongside her best friend, Latha Adams, and later, her daughter, Phyllis. Her cooking was her hobby and our enjoyment. We will miss so much her homemade noodles, chocolate oatmeal cookies, Mexican casseroles and especially, her cornbread dressing which she had many requests for. Betty is survived by her husband; son, Lee Snider, and daughter, Phyllis Boyer, both of Moore; grandsons, Jay Snider, of South Carolina; David Snider and his family, wife Rebecca and children, Barron and Adeline, of Dallas, TX; Curtis E. Lewis and his family, wife Chrysta, daughters, Allie, Kylie, and Maegan, and son, Aidan, all of Moore; sister, Jaunita Reed, and family friend, Judy Williams, of Del City; many nieces and nephews; and her very best friend, Latha Adams, of Katy, TX. Funeral Services are 2 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 12, 2017, at John M. Ireland & Son Funeral Home Chapel, 120 S. Broadway in Moore, OK. Interment will follow to Moore Cemetery. Services under direction of John Ireland Funeral Home.
