Dorothy Snyder (1930-2021)

Dorothy Elizabeth Snyder, age 90, passed away at her home on June 3, 2021.  She was born on July 16, 1930.  Dorothy grew up in a large family in upstate New York.  She moved to Bishop in 1963 and remained there until her passing.

Dorothy worked many years at The Northern Inyo Hospital where she proudly retired.  She was a single mother who worked hard to provide for her family.

Dorothy was a master seamstress.  She loved making quilts for her family, friends and especially for her grandchildren.  In her retirement, Dorothy took great pride in her garden and would tend to her vegetables daily.  She enjoyed sharing her impressive crop with her neighbors and friends.  When she was not busy quilting or gardening, she was baking her family favorites:  banana bread, pies and cookies.

Dorothy was small in stature but she had an enormous heart.  She will be greatly missed.  Dorothy is survived by her son Lorin, his wife Kimmy and her two grandchildren, Jake and Jenna.

In accordance with her wishes, a private Celebration of Life ceremony will be held.  In lieu of gifts or flowers, please make a donation to the caring doctors, nurses and staff at The Northern Inyo Hospital.
