Sylvia Snow was born on Christmas Day in 1928. She passed away on Sunday, January 22, 2017, at the age of 88.
She is preceded in death by her husband of 43 years, Robert “Bob” Earl Snow. In 1950, their honeymoon took them on a year-long journey to visit all 48 states in the United States, traveling in their automobile. During the first five years of their marriage, they established three neighborhood groceries in Covington at 8th and Greenup, Russell Street and Madison Avenue, called Snow’s Food Market. Over a 20 year period, they rehabbed about 15 homes in Covington.
When President’s Park was established in Edgewood, Bob and Sylvia made a donation to the city. The city named a baseball field in the President’s Park (Snow’s Field) in their honor.
Retired for many years, Sylvia was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother. She spent her life caring for her family, daughter Connie Jaeger and her husband Steve of Edgewood; her three grandchildren Stacie (Jason) Fogt, Carrie Jaeger, Steve (Lindsey) Jaeger; and five great-grandchildren, Kendra, Sabrina, Dylan, Lily and Iris.
She was known for her strength and determination and her joy of her family.
A private service will be held for Sylvia, at her request.
