Born to Frank and Elma Snider, Sept. 3, 1959, Kathy Ann Snider died unexpectedly Dec. 24, 2017. She was a resident of the Key Peninsula for over 20 years but grew up in Clark Fork, Idaho, where her father worked as the chief officer of the Cabinet Gorge Dam on the Clearwater River. She often said, “I was a dam child!” Following high school, Snider’s musical interests lead her to the University of Idaho, where she studied and mastered the piano. With her degree in music, she taught piano to countless numbers of children. After moving to the Key Peninsula, it did not take long for her to win hearts and make many friends. She was a beautiful, funny and bright light who will continue to shine. Snider is survived by her brother, Lee.
