Rebecca Lynn Snyder Holder Rebecca L. "Becky" Snyder Holder
After a courageous battle with cancer, Becky received her wings of an Angel on December 18, 2018, she was surrounded by her loving but heartbroken family. Becky graduated from Woodrow Wilson in 1977. she was born on December 29, 1958, she is the daughter of William D. and Vera A. Boblett Snyder. She is preceded in death by her Father, William D. Snyder. She is survived by her mother Vera: her loving husband of 36 years, Robert Nelson Holder, Jr., of Concord, VA; her precious son, Robert Landon Holder and his companion Jessica Winn and grandchildren Kenleigh Grace and Kaine of Forest City, NC. Additional survivors include her brothers Steve Snyder and wife Leah of Shady Spring, Timothy "Tim" Snyder of Piney View, and sister Robin Snyder of Beckley, nephews Craig, Corey, and Joshua and nieces Jessica and Heather, and extended family.
Becky was full of life and adventure, a true lover of the beach and sunshine, she was referred to as the "gypsy" of the family having lived in Myrtle Beach, SC for where she met her husband and the adventures began, they lived in Huntington Beach, CA where their son was born, Georgia, Florida, and Virginia. She was proactive in trying to keep her precious grandmother, Lola Boblett's tradition of family reunions continuing, as family was of great importance to her.
The strength she shown during her battle was admirable, as a part of her ongoing plan, she decided to donate her body to the state of Virginia for research, so she could continue her quest to make an impact to others.
The family would like to express a heartfelt thank you to Centra Hospice Lynchburg, VA and all the doctors and nurses that provided such amazing care to her and support to her family during her final days of life.
A celebration of life/memorial service will be scheduled at a later date.

You always seemed to live life on your terms, and that made life a lot more fun. You will be missed, as we in California can still remember, the joy you brought to every ones life.

I am so sorry for your loss of Becky. She was beautiful inside and out. Never a bad word to say about anyone. I was a classmate of hers from WWHS. Love and prayers to her husband Robert and the rest of her family. May God give you strength and courage during this most difficult time.

Today is your birthday my dear sister, I find it difficult to celebrate without you. It is another sad day and there will be so many more to come, it is absolutely overwhelming at times. I do hope you are " Dancing in the Sky" along with the other Angels. Words can never express how much I Love and Miss You - I will cherish you and all of our good memories forever. Rest my sweet sister, no more pain.
