Anna Mae Parry Snyder, R.N., 78, of Meadow St., Tribes Hill, New York, gently passed away Wednesday evening March 22, 2006 at St. Mary?s Hospital in Amsterdam, with her loving brother Donald and her beloved son Glenn at her side. Born in Amsterdam, New York on July 15, 1927, the daughter of Edward R. and Angeline Zacharias Parry, she was a lifelong resident of Tribes Hill. She was a 1945 graduate of the former Wilbur H. Lynch High School. Anna Mae went on to graduate from the Amsterdam City Hospital School of Nursing via the U.S. Cadet Nurse Corps following World War II. She was employed as a Registered Nurse for Amsterdam Memorial Hospital until her retirement. A very compassionate, loving nurse, Anna Mae had a special affection for newborn babies and children. She was known for her wonderful sense of humor and radiant love for all. Anna Mae and Ed resided during the winter in Naples, Florida at the Holiday Manor Co-op. She enjoyed playing cards with her friends and spent many fun times swimming in the pool. Anna Mae and Ed enjoyed the music of the park band, The Holiday Jammers, and loved to dance! She was an avid swimmer and a ?bathing beauty? at the Amsterdam YMCA. She was a member of the ?Pill Pushers? bowling team, the Amsterdam Memorial Hospital Nurses? Alumni, the Tribes Hill Presbyterian Church, the Iroquois Seniors, and the Par-Nil Golf Social Club. She enjoyed traveling, sometimes with her friends, and especially the 1989 cross-country trip with her husband. But most of all Anna Mae loved spending time with her cherished children and grandchildren. She married her beloved husband of over 54 years, Edward O. Snyder, on September 15, 1951.
