Gloria Snyder

Gloria Jean Snyder (née Oblander, formerly Krause), 74, of Willoughby Hills passed away Tuesday, December 12, 2023.  She was born January 27, 1949 in Cleveland, OH to Glenn and Nancy (Summers) Oblander.

She is survived by her loving husband, Lawrence Snyder; her sister, Kym Judson (Bruce Roberts); and her children, Autumn, Sean (Susan), Dana (Anna), and Rory Krause (Joyce Menart). She was a proud grandmother of 11 to Kait, Sydney, Tyler, Emma, Brandon, Makenna, Kennadee, Mason, Aleksandra, Inessa, and Eli.  She was a loving aunt and stand-in grandma, “Auntie Grandma,” to her nieces, Charlise (Matt) Achterhof and Arica (Jeff) Busser and to her great nieces and nephew,  Rayna, J.J., and Jade.  She is preceded to heaven by her parents, her sister, Robin M. Oblander, and brother, Glenn J. Oblander, Jr.

She retired last year from her job as IT Manager for the Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine; a career she truly enjoyed. Gloria was always on the go with her friends and attending her grandchildren’s sporting and dance events.  She was a wonderful cook, always the life of the party, and enjoyed chair yoga and sewing with her quilting club.

Gloria loved to travel with her husband, Larry, and her adventures took her as far as Thailand, Greece, and Egypt. Sadly, her illness over the past year prevented her from even more adventures that she had planned for her retirement.

Gloria was warm and caring and leaves a hole in the hearts of those who knew her, loved her, and mourn her loss. There will be a private interment, at a later date, at Lake View Cemetery, Cleveland, OH. Her family will hold a Celebration of the life of our lovely, beloved Glo this coming Summer.  As per her wishes, and true to her joyful nature, she wants to be remembered with food, family, love, laughter, and a big party.
