Lynn M. Snyder, 74

November 30, 2023

Lynn M. Snyder, 74, passed away on November 30, 2023. She was born in Lancaster, PA, the daughter of the late Miriam Jane (Heart) and Thomas M. Groff.

She was the beloved wife to Joseph A. Snyder with whom she shared a life filled with love and companionship.

Lynn dedicated her professional life to RR Donnelly, where she worked in Payroll before her well-earned retirement. Lynn had a vibrant and active life, enjoying various interests and hobbies. She was a member of the Lancaster County Cruisers Car Club, sharing her passion for automobiles with like-minded enthusiasts. She loved exploring new places, with favorite destinations including Niagara Falls, Florida, the Poconos, the cabin, and the mountains. Lynn was known for her exceptional cooking and baking skills, particularly for her chocolate chip walnut cookies that held a special place in the hearts of those who tasted them. Her culinary talents were especially cherished during the Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons.

Lynn’s love for music, with “Amazing Grace” as her favorite song, adds another dimension to her personality and interests. “Amazing Grace” is a timeless and soulful hymn that often holds deep personal meaning for individuals.

Lynn enjoyed the challenge of crossword puzzles and found joy in the simple act of grocery shopping. She was also an avid reader.

Lynn M. Snyder’s legacy will be remembered through the love she shared, the memories she created, and the warmth she brought to the lives of those around her. She will be deeply missed by family and friends.

Lynn is survived by her loving husband: Joseph A. Snyder; children: Michael A. Snyder (Anita) of Perryville, MD, Michelle R. Snyder of Aberdeen, MD; grandsons: Dennis and Michael, Jr.; brother: Wayne T. Groff (Freida A.) of Lancaster;a niece and nephew ; her beloved fur baby, Spike “Bubbus.” Lynn was welcomed into heaven by her daughter, Melissa R. “Missie” Groff-Knight, and grandson, Thomas Hall.

A Graveside Service will be held at 11:00 AM on Friday, December 8, 2023, at Middle Octorara Cemetery, 1199 Valley Road, Quarryville, PA 17566.

Joe and Family,
I am so sorry, I didn’t make it down today for Lynn’s service.  I will miss seeing her at the car club functions. Since Mom was an only child and Dad the baby, you are like the big sis and brother, and Aunt and Uncle all rolled into one.  Course when needed the foster Mom and Dad. I wish I would have had time to get to know Lynn more.  Like her love for the song Amazing Grace.  I know her and and my Mom are probably being introduced to each other and talking about their love of the outdoors, mountains and of course cars. My thoughts and prayers to all.

Working with Lynn always was entertaining and enjoyable.  Everyone knew she would do everything possible to make sure payroll was as accurate and on time as possible.  Enjoyed working with her even though I knew she wouldn’t be afraid to challenge me if she thought it was appropriate.
God Bless,
