She was a member of the Rosarians of St. Johnís Parish in San Francisco and one of the oldest members of the Holy Family Guild of Marin.
Mrs. Snider is survived by her husband, by two sons, Edward Raymond Snider of Piedmont and Stanley Snider of Sunnyvale; a daughter, Mrs. Edward Malley of San Francisco, by four grandchildren.
A Requiem High Mass will be offered at 9 a.m. Monday at St. Johnís Church on St. Mary avenue between San Jose and Mission avenues in San Francisco. The Rosary will be recited at 8 oíclock tomorrow evening at Dugganís Mortuary, Seventeenth and Valencia streets, San Francisco.
