Her children and grandchildren knew just how loved they were because she told them each time she saw them multiple times. Her family all know how precious they are to her because she made sure she told every one. If you knew Dot Snider, you knew she loved you, no matter who you are. If you knew her then you know how much she loves Jesus and that she wanted everyone to know the love of God. She had an incredible prayer ministry. There were many people to come through her home over the years, who have been prayed for, many saved and even healed in the Name of Jesus. She served for 50 years as a Sunday School teacher at Martins Crossroads Church, as well as in Women Ministries and the choir. She was well known for her legendary skills in the kitchen and was even featured in the Atlanta Magazine a few years back.
Many grandchildren and spouses submitted their words to share about her. There were many common things said: “She is the sweetest and Godliest woman I have ever known.” “She is rejoicing with our loved ones and praising The Savior she loves so much.” “She found great joy in giving. She was happiest when her home was jam packed with members of her family.” “When I remember the love for Mama Dot, I think of the unrestricted love she showed to each and everyone of us. It was an irreplaceable focal point of my day that gave me courage, confidence, and made me feel truly loved.” “Many times when she talked about heaven she would tell me of all the people who were there that she would get to see.” “Her scrambled eggs were somehow better than anyone else’s, her biscuits had no rival, and all of Lincoln County knows about her Red Velvet Cake.”
“Because of her great faith, our Papa and Uncle Todd are in heaven and my father, uncles, and cousins all know the truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Her greatest legacy is the one that gives us the hope that we will see her again in Heaven.”
