Wanda Sue (Harmon) Snyder, age 79, of Fort Wayne, passed away peacefully on Monday, November 16, 2020 after a brief illness with COVID-19. A member of St. John the Baptist Catholic Church, Wanda also volunteered at Women’s Care Center, and she worked with her late husband Bill at their business, New Haven Trophies for many years.
Wanda was known for her friendly personality and sense of humor, and she treasured her many wonderful friends. In her spare time, Wanda was an avid reader and also enjoyed researching the family’s genealogy. And, countless babies have been blessed with the beautiful blankets she crocheted.
Wanda was a devoted mother to her four children, and beloved Nana to her ten grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. With her late husband Bill, Wanda made their home a loving destination for family and friends. Whether hosting large holiday parties, impromptu card games or sleepovers with the grandkids, Wanda loved welcoming people to her home.
Wanda is survived by her children, Teresa (Dan) Gibbons, Sherry (Matt) Monesmith, Todd (Lisa) Snyder and Tiffani (Mike) Setlak; grandchildren, Will (Julie) Gibbons, John (Bethany) Gibbons, Caitlin, Nick and Sarah Monesmith and Lauren (Brendan Hurley) Monesmith, Nick and Lindsay Snyder, Anna and Lily Setlak; great-grandchildren, Milo and June Gibbons; and siblings, Barbara Mooneyhan and Ruby Reese.
Wanda was preceded in death by her brother, Willie; her parents, Dessie and Willie Harmon; sister, Billie Jo Mooneyhan; and her husband, Bill Snyder.
