Janet Snyder

Janet Snyder (nee Brodsky), 92, of Baltimore, MD, formerly of Margate, NJ, and Philadelphia, PA, died peacefully at home surrounded by her loving family on September 5, 2023.

She is predeceased by her loving parents Irwin and Betty (nee Bobritsky) Brodsky, beloved and loving husband of 68 years, Dr. Edwin Snyder, who died in 2021, and devoted sisters Harriet Pravitz and Susan Brown.

She was raised in Philadelphia and was a graduate of Philadelphia High School for Girls and the University of Pennsylvania. Ed and Janet raised their children in Philadelphia and spent their summers boating on the Chesapeake Bay. In retirement they lived in Margate, New Jersey, and were active in the Democratic Club, Avoda Club, Art Goes to School and Congregation Beth El. Her greatest joy was hosting and spending time with her children, grandchildren, and friends at the shore.

Janet is survived by her loving children, Linda Huganir (Lee Coplan) of Baltimore, MD, Robert Snyder (Hillary Michelson) of Hawley, PA and Debby Hirsh (Richard) of Cape Coral, FL, her devoted grandchildren Nikki Huganir (Henry Melcher), Adam Huganir (Katie Griffin), Jordan Snyder, Whitney Clark (Kevin), Zachary Hirsh, Jason Hirsh (fiancée Lauren Garcia), Lindsay Hirsh and Rebecca Law and her great grandchildren Lucy Clark and Romy Melcher. She is also survived by her loving and devoted friend and caregiver Nana Dansoa Ampofo, who brought comfort, companionship, and dignity into the last years of both Ed and Janet's lives.
