Sandra Leigh (McCray) Snyder, 74 of Head Waters, passed away Wednesday, February 16, 2022 at Augusta Health Care.

She was born August 3, 1947, in Head Waters, a daughter of the late William “Peyton” and Anna Lee (Botkin) McCray. On July 26, 1968 she married Carson Snyder. She was raised and held membership in the former Head Waters Presbyterian Church and attended McDowell Presbyterian Church.

A retired certified nursing assistant with a quick wit and good humor, Sandra loved visiting with people, was known as a people person and never met a stranger. She enjoyed putting puzzles together in the winter, raising flowers in the summer and loved listening to the rain. She also enjoyed traveling with her sister, Barbara to the annual Nothin' Fancy Bluegrass Festival in Buena Vista. She will be fondly remembered for her jokester ways, bubbly personality and laughter that would light up a room.

Warner and husband, Jerry of Vinton and Vivian Terry and husband, Bobby of Monterey; brother, William P. “Jake” McCray Jr. and wife, Susan of Head Waters; as well as a number of nieces and nephews.
