Melissa Ann Snyder

February 8, 1981 — July 25, 2023

Cleveland, Ohio

Melissa Ann Snyder, age 42, departed this earthly realm on July 25, 2023. She was preceded in death by her brothers, Michael Snyder and Adrian Spraggins.

Melissa was born on February 8, 1981, in Cleveland, Ohio, to her parents Donna Ann Snyder and A.D. Spraggins. She was a devoted mother to her beloved son, DeAndre Michael Snyder, born on September 25, 1998. Bill Williams, a close friend to Melissa, played a significant role in helping raise her son, and together they formed a strong family bond.

A vivacious spirit, Melissa was known for her love of music and always kept the surroundings vibrant while cleaning. She had a profound affection for animals and was frequently found feeding squirrels, showcasing her kind and caring nature. Nature held a special place in her heart, and she cherished spending time outdoors. Her love for butterflies filled her with joy and wonder.

Melissa's favorite colors were purple, pink, and yellow, which reflected her vibrant personality and love for life. She adorned her world with these colors, adding a touch of warmth and brightness wherever she went.

Melissa possessed an indescribable charm that made her a rare and unforgettable woman. Despite the challenges she encountered throughout her journey, she remained dedicated to bringing smiles to the faces of her loved ones. Honesty was her virtue, and her heart was one of the biggest in the universe. Anyone fortunate enough to be loved by her considered themselves the luckiest individuals, for she radiated warmth and love like the sun, even during moments of solitude.

Melissa leaves behind a profound void in the hearts of those who cherished her. She is survived by her beloved son, DeAndre M. Snyder, and her sisters, Sarah Snyder and Kathleen R. Snyder (Mataugh), as well as her brother, Nathaniel Snyder. She also leaves behind numerous other siblings, nieces (Aniyah, Zahrie, Emirah), and a nephew (Isaiah), along with a host of aunts, uncles, cousins, and additional nieces and nephews, all of whom she loved dearly.
