She enjoyed going to cattle shows, auctions and collecting antiques. Mrs. Sneed was a very active member of the Rescue Free Will Baptist Church. She served as secretary-treasurer of the Womans Auxiliary at the Church. Mrs. Sneed was always ready and willing to help people in their time of need, especially serving dinners at the church.

Mrs. Sneed is survived by two sons, Dennis Sneed and wife Delenise of Ewing and Mark Sneed of Stillwater, Okla.; two granddaughters, Jennifer Abbott and fiance Danny Estep of Benton and Jamie Mosley and husband Cary of Benton; four great-grandchildren, Kodi and Kyle Abbott and Taylor and Preston Mosley; three sisters, Mildred Koerner of Warsaw, Ind., Fay Klosowski of Milwaukee and Loretta Odom and husband James of Benton; and several nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her parents; husband; four brothers, Ralph, Carl, Jim and Gail; and two sisters, Ethel Pearl Hargis and Helen Heimer.

Funeral service will be held at 10 a.m. Saturday at the Morton and Johnson Funeral Home in Benton with the Rev. Bryant Harris officiating. Burial will be in the Shiloh Cemetery in Whittington.
