Betty Snyder

February 13, 1932 — July 20, 2022


Heaven gained an angel when Betty Jo Robinson Snyder, age 90, passed away on Wednesday, July 20, 2022 surrounded by her loving family at her residence in Newton, NC.

A native of Haywood County, she was a daughter of the late Ernest and Effie Mae Putnam Robinson.  She was also preceded in death by her beloved husband of 63 years, Ernie Snyder and all her siblings in her big family; three sisters, Ruth R. Passmore, Dorothy R. Cochran, and Ernestine R. Gardner; and four brothers, Earl, Cecil, Howell, and Don Robinson.  Three nephews, Dickie Cochran, Johnny Phillip Robinson, and Timothy Robinson also predeceased their Aunt Betty Jo.

A skilled baker, Betty Jo also enjoyed needlework and the challenge of a difficult crossword puzzle.  In her downtime, she liked watching her favorite drama series, Law & Order.  Betty Jo was looked to as a caretaker and support system for her large extended family.  Spending time with them and making special memories was her joy.

Betty Jo is survived by her dear nieces and nephew; Donnalene R. Brown, Kay Robinson, Maxine L. Hubbard, Robin G. Fendley, Donna McFadden, Sherrie Shafer, and D. Lowell Robinson, Jr.; several great-nieces and great nephews, Krista Whitener, Challen W. McRee, Avie R. Smith, Molly Jessup, Todd McFadden, Ryan McFadden, Carlee McFadden, Terri Parker, and Jaymie Schwartz; and longtime loving friend, Cherylann Titus Parlette.
