Obituary for Janice W. Snider

Janice (Jan) W. Snider, 88, of Riverdale Ga. passed away on September 24, 2017. She was born on December 28, 1928 to the late Coleman Franklin and Gertie Lee Watson.

She was preceded in death by her husband of 57 years, Reverend Thero Washington Snider. She is survived by her sister Jennette Hicks of Jonesboro. Jan is also survived by the Khanti Voraotsady family of Fayetteville. The Sniders provided a home to Khanti after he escaped from a communist holding camp in Laos as a young boy. It was a joy and a privilege for the Sniders to watch Khanti grow into a fine young man, marry, and raise his own family. Khanti, his wife Irene, and children Molli, Mae Lee, Lily, and Leann always referred to Mrs. Snider as “GranJan”.

Mrs. Snider had an extensive newspaper career as a copywriter and typesetter for several newspapers including The Dothan Eagle, The Birmingham News, and the Montgomery Advertiser in Al; the Jacksonville Herald in FL; The Corpus Christi Caller and The Waco Herald in TX; The Aiken Standard and Review in SC; and The Savannah Morning News, The Augusta Herald, and The Atlanta Journal Constitution in GA.

Jan Snider will be missed by her many nieces and nephews, friends, and her many acquaintances at Southland Health and Rehab in Peachtree City where she lived for the last 6 years.

A memorial service will be held at 2:00 PM on October 8, 2017 in the Chapel at First Baptist Jonesboro, 147 Church Street, Jonesboro, GA. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the First Baptist Jonesboro,
