Joyce A. Snell

SNELL

Joyce A.

Age 65, of Kennedy Twp., passed peacefully on January 14, 2017. Loving wife for 43 years to her college sweetheart, the late Alan Snell.  Blessed mother of two wonderful children, Lauren (Wynn) Hann and David Snell; proud grandmother of Uma and Mila Hann; preceded in death by parents Peter and Julia Muha, as well as her brother, Robert (surviving, Donna) Muha; also survived by many nieces, nephews and cousins.  Joyce was a teacher of 36 years in the Sto-Rox School District with a passion for community service. She served as a member of the Montour School Board for 18 years; as a board member for the Allegheny Intermediate Unit; and as a trustee for the Allegheny School Health Consortium and the Community College of Allegheny County.  Joyce and her family were very grateful to her dear friend, Mitch Galiyas, for his friendship and selfless help throughout her courageous battle with cancer.  Family will receive friends 2:00-4:00 and 6:00-8:00 pm, THURSDAY and FRIDAY at McDERMOTT FUNERAL HOME, INC., 334 Forest Grove Road, Kennedy Twp.  Funeral service will be private.

Dear Lauren, David, Wynn,
You have my deepest sympathy on the loss of such a wonderful parent, wife, grandmother, friend, teacher and community leader. I spend time with your mom at family Christmas parties in Erie, Pa. We would talk about her children and her grandchildren and all the ideas she had to better the field of education. Truth be told, she was very excited about her grandbabies! I know how hard this is for you all, I went through this, too. Remember her love for you is eternal and she will look after you in a higher position-I have no doubt, Joyce will be advocating for her family in Heaven! She was a wonderfully gifted woman-traits that I see in all of you! Again, my deepest sympathy...
