Louise Stephens Snider April 27, 1930 – January 10, 2022 Louise Stephens Snider, 91 went to her heavenly home on January 10, 2022. She was raised in White Gate, Virginia and loved telling about her good years on their farm as a child.

Her first job was at Natural Bridge Hotel and then she worked for over 40 years at Celanese Corporation in Narrows, Virginia until she retired. She was a member of First United Methodist Church in Narrows and never met anyone she didn’t like. Her favorite things to do involved working in the garden, mowing, and sitting in the sun; and especially her yearly beach trips with her daughter, granddaughter and son.

She is survived by her daughter Trudy Ferguson of Roanoke, Virginia; her son William Snider of Pearisburg, Virginia; her granddaughter, Karla Ferguson-Granger (Glenn) of Roanoke, Virginia; great grandsons, Wyatt Ferguson of Plymouth Minnesota; Christian LaFavor (Hannah) of Roanoke, Virginia; great great granddaughter Leigh LaFavor; and sister Julia Francis of Ballard, West Virginia. Also missing her, is her favorite dog Macie. She was predeceased by her father and mother, Sam and Virgie Stephens; husband, Paul Snider; son-in-law Ron Ferguson; son Greg Snider; grandson Travis Ferguson; and many sisters and brothers.

We would like to thank Heritage Hall in Rich Creek, Virginia where she spent her last two months.

Visitation will be Tuesday January 18, from 10 – 11 at Givens Funeral Home Pearisburg, Va. Funeral will follow at 11am with Pastor Faye Asbury officiating. Burial will be in Birchlawn Burial Park in Pearisburg.
