Martha W. “Marnie” Snow, 81, passed away peacefully at Granite VNA Hospice House in Concord, on Monday, September 12, 2022 after a long and courageous battle against Parkinson's Disease.
Martha was born July 28, 1941, in Concord, to Reuel W. Webb III and Natalie (Stevens) Webb. She graduated from Concord High School in 1959 and from Bates College in 1963, where she met her husband Ken when she was a sophomore and he was a junior. She received her Master’s degree in Early Childhood Education from UNH in 1978.
Marnie lived in Manchester, for the past 57 years and was a highly respected early childhood educator who was instrumental in founding 4 preschool programs. She retired as a teacher from the Manchester School of Technology in 2004, where she co-founded the Early Childhood Education program.
Marnie was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, and friend — loved by everyone. She enjoyed dinners with friends, international travel, home decorating, steamed lobsters at Great Bay, her beautiful rock garden, winning a tough game of cribbage, photography and time spent with her beloved grandchildren. In particular, she loved making films, books, and posters commemorating their creative ideas, random adventures, and many life milestones.
Marnie adored the many Boston Terriers she had throughout her life: Chummy, Peanut, Beanie, Patty, and Rosie. She loved them so much that she collected and displayed every Boston Terrier figurine ever made.
Marnie leaves behind her husband of 58 years, Kendall A. Snow; two children, Kristin K. Snow and Gregory W. Snow; a sister, Susan Webb Tregay and her husband, George Tregay; a brother-in-law, Marshall W. Snow; a sister-in-law, Beverly M. Snow; two grandchildren, Ian Tate Snow and Kendall N. Jones; extended family members and many lifelong friends.
She was predeceased by her parents and her son-in-law, Frederick N. Jones.
