BOWIE, Md. – Bonolyn “Bonnie” (Kinney) Snyder was born April 3, 1932, in Topeka, Kan., and passed away May 23, 2020.

She is survived by her four sons, Charlie and wife, Cathy, of New Braunfels, Texas, Jim Snyder, New Ulm, Texas, John Snyder and wife, Tori, Tulsa, Okla., and Daniel Snyder, Pasadena, Md.; 12 grandchildren, Chip, Courtney, Chad, Candace, Braden, Brittany, Macy, Kellner, Shelby, Cory, Brock and Makenzie; 19 great-grandchildren; and other relatives and friends.

Bonnie graduated from Washburn University, Topeka, Kan., (Delta Gamma). She was a longtime respected educator, and retired as a teacher from Bowie High School, Bowie, Md., where she taught home economics and bachelor living. She was a loving mother and friend to many, all of whom considered her to be a shining example of unconditional love.

In addition to her unwavering love of this great country of ours, her passions beyond her strong fondness for family included cooking, travel, spending time with good friends, and sincerely listening to everyone’s story. She was a longtime champion of education, and strongly encouraged everyone to attain further education. Her greatest travel passion was discovering all parts of Alaska with her good friend, Marge Phillips. At the ripe old age of 84 years old, she even joined her four sons on a multi-day high adventure fishing trip in the backwoods of Alaska! A long time believer in Jesus Christ, she will be sincerely missed by many until we meet her again.

Memorial services will be 11 a.m. Friday, Aug. 6, 2021, at Feltner Funeral Chapel, Lyndon, Kan. Inurnment will follow at the Ridgeway Cemetery, northeast of Carbondale, Kan.
