She was born on July 3, 1930, in Youngstown, the daughter of the late Paul and Suzanna (Kolesar) Tomo.  She grew up in Youngstown and graduated with the class of 1948 from Chaney High School.

On February 22, 1963, Susan married the love of her life, Arthur Dale Snyder. They were married for nearly 40 years until Dale's passing on February 20, 2003. Together, they built a family and a home that was always welcoming and warm.

A loving wife, mother, and grandmother, Susan also dedicated many years to the Canfield Local School District as one of the custodians at the Middle School. She was a faithful member of Zion Lutheran Church and enjoyed crossword puzzles, books, cooking, family gatherings, and polka music. Susan was very proud of her Slovak heritage.

Besides her parents and her husband Dale, Susan was preceded in death by four brothers, Paul, John, Andrew, and Myron Tomo, as well as her son-in-law, Robert Zedaker.
