Frances I. Peters (Snyder), born December 21, 1923, passed away July 9, 2019 at First Community Village, her home in her final years. She was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, aunt and friend and will be deeply missed by all who knew her.

A war bride in 1943, Frances married “Pete” on furlough and after the war they were blessed to have a son, Jerry, who she doted on. Suddenly widowed in 1969, her aunt Ann became her faithful companion for the rest of their shared days. She proudly worked for Mr. Bowles’ IGA grocery store on 5th Avenue for 42 years.
