Norma Sandra Snyder

d. December 8, 2023

Norma Sandra Snyder, 98, passed away on December 8, 2023, daughter of the late Nicholas Capri and Gazelle Marmolston Capri, wife of the late Eugene A. Snyder, mother of the late Michael (Barbara) Snyder, and niece to the late Frances and David Blum.  She is survived by her son, Dr. Paul (Karen) Snyder, her daughter, Lauren (Jay) Robinson, eight grandchildren (Lisa, Gena, Craig, Owen, Erik, Ian, Julia, and Cole), and four great-grandchildren (Benjamin, Sam, Lucy, and Lily).


Norma was a beloved, devoted, and loving daughter, wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and niece.  She was an exceptional human being - full of life, generous and kind, and extraordinarily talented.  She helped her husband, the late Eugene A. Snyder, in countless ways in his capacity as Executive Vice President and Board Member of Henkel Corporation and Rorer-Amchem, Inc., and President and Board Member of Amchem Products, Inc.  Norma served on the Executive Committee of the Friends of Sheie Eye Institute, where she was also actively involved with fundraising efforts.


Norma’s positivity, vivaciousness, and exuberant love of life were inspiring to all who met her.  She greeted each day with enthusiastic anticipation and deep-felt appreciation, eagerly thinking “What are we going to do today?”  She possessed the innate ability to enjoy the beauty of everything around her and to see the goodness in people.  Not a day went by where she did not say what a “lucky girl” she was to have had her beloved family (both growing up and as an adult), the privilege to enjoy the immense beauty of this world, and the good fortune to be able to experience so many wonderful adventures. These qualities were her very essence and what made her so very special.


Norma had a pure heart and was a beautiful person both inside and out - warm, loving, vibrant, and so much fun to be with.  She added joy to any social gathering and was always the sparkling center of attention.  When you were with her, you always felt special and left with a smile on your face, feeling uplifted and good about yourself and about the time that you had spent with her.  She was the epitome of elegance, stylishness, class and beauty.

From an early age Norma showed a passion for the piano, classical music, and the arts and became an accomplished classical pianist and an immensely talented artist, skilled in oil, acrylics and watercolors - undertaking the difficult art of reverse glass painting later in her life.  She traveled the world and treasured every single moment, celebrating and remembering the beautiful vistas of her travels in her art work. 

She was devoted to her family, first and foremost, and was and will always be loved beyond measure.  In honor of Norma, share her positive outlook by asking yourself “What are we going to do today?” and take a moment to see and appreciate all of the beauty that surrounds you and to find all of the special things in every day that fill you with gratitude.
