                Margaret Roberta Snyder, age 91, of Seneca, went Home to be with her Lord and Savior Tuesday afternoon, September 12, 2017. 

                She was born in Lorain, Ohio on April 27, 1926 to the late Walter Reed and Pearl (Garber) Wortman. 

                She graduated from Lorain High School in 1944, and in 1948 she graduated from Practical Bible Training School (now Davis College). 

                Mrs. Snyder served as a missionary in India under The India Mission from 1950 through 1964.  She served as headmaster of the Indian Girls Middle School in Bhongir, India, and later worked in the middle school in Peddapalli for Indian pastors and evangelists, teaching Bible and English courses. 

                She has been a member of Grace Baptist Church in Seneca since 1964.  She has served the Lord in countless church ministries such as being a Sunday school teacher, Missionary President, financial secretary, and music chair. 

                Margaret enjoyed traveling to many countries, and most of the fifty states.  She also enjoyed sports, cross stitching, quilting, her pug dogs (especially Ben), entertaining friends and family, and studying God's word.  After losing her sight, she began to memorize large portions of the Bible, with John: Chapter 14, being a favorite. 

                She was married in the Euclid Avenue Baptist Church in Lorain, Ohio on June 27, 1964 to Paul L. Snyder, and he preceded her in death on August 25, 2015.
