Elizabeth Imogene “Betty” Snodgrass, 95, of Greencastle, passed away on Monday, Jan. 3, 2022.

Born Dec. 23, 1926 in Putnam County, she was the oldest of five children to Jesse and Era (Bales) Martin.

Betty was a graduate of Clinton Center School in 1946.

She married Carl Snodgrass on Feb. 7, 1948. She and Carl farmed for several years in Putnam County. She also worked at PR Mallory’s and later retired from Putnam County Hospital.

After retiring, she stayed busy making noodles, dog biscuits, mowing her yard and caring for family and neighbors, always ready to help anyone. Her cookie jar was always full and she made the best angel food cakes.

She enjoyed riding with her neighbor in his Gator. She was excited to take a ride in a State Trooper car last Mother’s Day.

Betty was a member of Clinton Falls Church and attended Union Chapel Church.

She was preceded in death by her husband, parents, brothers Otis Max and Lee Martin and son-in-law Joseph Clark.

Betty is survived by her daughters, Pamela Nelson, Carla Jones and Ella Clark; sister Elsie Padgett; brother Everett (Jackie) Martin; sister-in-law Charlotte Martin; five grandchildren, Jim, Crystal, Ryan, Amy and Sara; five great-grandchildren, Levi, Katelyn, Calvin, Emma and Lily; and great-great-granddaughter Nevaeh and one on the way.

All of her family and friends will truly miss her.

Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m. on Monday, Jan. 10 at the Hopkins-Rector Funeral Home, Greencastle, with burial to follow at Clinton Falls Cemetery.

The family will receive friends from 10 a.m. until time of service on Monday at the funeral home.
