Donna Lee Snider

Surrounded by family, Donna Lee Snider, of Devine, Texas passed away peacefully to be with Our Lord and Savior on October 4, 2022 at the age of 65.
Donna was born on May 1, 1957 in San Antonio, TX to parents, Melvin Eugene Hoover and Annie Dora Hoover.
She was known for her loving and kind spirit, fun personality and having a feisty attitude at times. She was an honest and loyal woman who was a hard worker with lots of determination. She enjoyed the challenge of tinkering with broken electronics to make them like new again, she found a purpose for everything. She served her community and the Devine ISD for many years working as a crossing guard, being a member of the PTO and often volunteering her time as an assistant in the classroom. Later in life, she found joy in caring for the patients at Sterling Residential Care. She enjoyed gardening and tending to her roses. She loved the sound of her wind chimes in the breeze while watching the cardinals and hummingbirds fly in for their daily visit. Her love for her family was of utmost importance; indeed she was her family’s biggest cheerleader. She devoted much of her time to being “Nana”, her pride and joy are her children and grandchildren.
Donna was a strong woman of faith and loved the fulfillment of praise music. It would be wrong to say my mom lost her battle with cancer because she never stopped fighting. No matter how sick she was, she was always determined. When anyone else would have broken, she stayed strong. Through her, we know what resilience and perseverance truly look like. There was no quit in her. Just because she is not here, it doesn’t mean she lost her fight.
Donna is proceeded in death by her parents, Melvin and Annie Hoover; step mother, Cherry Hoover and brother, Johnny Hoover.
She is survived by her husband of 49 years, Loyd Snider; Daughters: Dana Marie Snider, Jennifer Ann Keenum and son-in-law, Shane Keenum; grandchildren: Emma Keenum, Dresden Snider, Phoenix Snider, Wyatt Keenum and Dassidy Snider; siblings: Frankie Adkins, Helen Lovejoy, David Hoover, Brenda Ebner, Edith Hubbard, Charles Rosenbloom, Jimmie Rosenbloom, Bo Callaway and Tudy Callaway.
A “Memorial Service and Celebration of Life” for Donna will be held on Saturday, November 5, 2022 from 11:00am-12:00pm at Betania Baptist Church, 404 E. Hondo Ave. Devine, TX 78016.
