July 25, 1929–July 15, 2020

Yvonne Snyder passed away on July 15, 2020, in Newcastle, Wyo. She was 10 days shy of her 91st birthday. She was born July 25, 1929, in Rapid City, S.D., to Carl and Amanda Eastman. She had three sisters and one brother who all preceded her in death.

Yvonne spent the first part of her life living in the Rapid City area then moved to Newcastle where she worked in the hospital until her retirement. She loved going on bird watching adventures and participating in her church and her community in Newcastle. Her dear friends in Newcastle will miss her so.

Her family said, “Yvonne was the best mother and grandmother anyone could have asked for. She will be dearly missed by her daughters, Donel Nelson and husband Don Nelson, Joyce Snyder and her grandson Adam Nelson. Her family is so proud of the strong loving woman that she was.”

There will be a celebration of her life in Newcastle in the spring of 2021.  In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to Weston County Humane Society, 115 Cambria St., Newcastle WY 82701, in her name.
