She was employed as a picker/packer for Hancock Orchard for several years. She then became a stay-at-home mother and homemaker.

She was known as “Nanny” to all who knew her, and always asked if you were ready to “run around the block” or “go sled riding” with her.

She greatly enjoyed spending time with her family and her dog, Chris, and listening to Elvis music.

She is survived by two daughters, Robin Conrad, of Artemas, Pa., and Pamela McCarty and her husband, Richard, of Hampton, Va.; two sons, Douglas Snyder and his wife, Teresa L. (Johns), of Little Orleans, Md., and Tracey Snyder, of Flintstone, Md.; a sister, Ruth Whorton of Flintstone, Md.; eleven grandchildren; and twenty great-grandchildren.

Conrad, Sr.; a daughter-in-law, Launa (Weimer) Snyder; a special great-nephew, Christopher N. Robinette; a brother-in-law, Charles Whorton; and a brother, Harry Richard McDonald.
