MIDDLETON/NEWPORT, KY-Florence B Snider, age 91, of Middleton, passed away on Friday, Sept. 28, 2018, at Agrace HospiceCare surrounded by her family. She was born on Sept. 25, 1927, in Newport, KY, the daughter of Charles and Florence (Johnson) Groeschen. She married Raymond Snider on Aug. 10, 1946 in Newport, KY, and together they had two daughters, Helen and Sandy. Florence worked for many years in Kentucky and California at various candy companies and Joni Blair Apparel. Florence loved watching baseball and was a dedicated fan of the Cincinnati Reds and Brewers. She thoroughly enjoyed the family sport of going to the horse races, playing cards, and going to the casino. Florence dearly loved her family, especially her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Florence is survived by two daughters, Helen (Brian) Dodds of Virginia, and Sandy Snider of California; grandchildren, Lauren (Andrew) LaVenture and Michael (Stacey) Dodds; great-grandchildren, Kenzie and Peyton LaVenture, and Connor, and twins, Hannah and Sophie Dodds; as well as many dear friends and relatives.
