Sunrise September 30, 1938, Sunset February 6, 2021. It is with great sadness that we must share of Vivian Enfante Snyder's passing after a brief but fierce battle with pancreatic cancer. Vivian and her husband Gary provided a safe-haven and love to so many for so many years. They shared their home with many foster children and rescue animals, including a successful racing Greyhound rescue where so many wonderful dogs found forever homes. As a founding member and participant of the Mad Catter's Cat club, Vivian enjoyed breeding, raising and showing her Devon Rex. She was passionate about all animals, even the wild critters outside. We are so thankful for the time she shared with us and giving of herself to so many. She will live on in the memories of those lives she touched, including many of their foster children. She is survived by her husband Gary, children Leslie (Arnie) Smoots of Fairway, KS; Scott (Jane) Snyder of Eulethra Bahamas; Melanie (John) Burkett of Thurmont, MD; Michelle Grasso of Seven Valleys, PA and Dan Snyder of Virginia. She is also survived by her brother, Michael (Paulette) Enfante. She was preceded in death by her parents, Frank and Louise Enfante and her son, Jeremy Snyder.
