Kathryn Snider

July 4, 1985 — August 12, 2021

Kathryn Elizabeth Snider, 36, passed away peacefully at home with her family by her side Thursday, August 12, 2021, in Smithsburg, Maryland after her 5 year long and very courageous battle against brain cancer. She was the loving wife of Dan Snider and mother of Noah and Adeline.

In addition to her loving husband and children, Kathryn is survived by her brother, Charles Six and sister-in-law, Maya Six, and her two nieces Sofia and Danica Six, from Lenoir City, Tennessee. Kathryn was greatly loved and will be remembered by her uncles Chuck Harp and Tom Harp, by her aunts, Debbie Harp, Elaine Harp and Kim Harp; and by her cousin, Lizzy Harp. Kathryn was preceded in death by her uncle, Greg Harp.

Born on July 4th, 1985, in Charleston West Virginia, she was the daughter of Bill and Sue Six, from Frederick, Maryland. Kathryn graduated from Frederick High School in 2003 and earned her associates degree from Frederick Community College. Kathryn loved helping other people and was a devoted care giver as shown by her choice of careers. She worked as a nursing assistant in several nursing homes in Frederick County, Maryland, was a job coach for adults with developmental disabilities in Florida and Frederick County and, most recently, was an instructional assistant for children with emotional and developmental disabilities in Frederick County and Washington County, Maryland.

Kathryn had an amazing circle of friends. Her warriors and angels were an amazing group with all their prayers, love, support and generosity. Kathryn and her family could not have gotten through this journey without them. Thank you all. The family also thanks Hospice of Washington County for all the help it provided to Kathryn and her family during the final months of her life.
