Carol (Schuler) Snyder, age 89, of Merritt Island, FL, died peacefully on Saturday, May 13, at Holmes Regional Medical Center. Before her recent decline in health, she lived independently and pursued many activities.
Carol Ann Schuler was born in Buffalo, NY, on December 8, 1933, the second child of Joseph and Margaret (Baker) Schuler. She attended Buffalo schools and graduated from St. Mary Magdalene High School. In later life, she earned a degree from Brevard Community College (now Eastern Florida State College.)
She married Donald P. Snyder of Kenmore, NY, on January 17, 1953 at St. Mary Magdalene Church. She later married Bertram Hill of Cocoa, FL.
During her working life, she was primarily employed as a waitress, an occupation she pursued with the pride of doing a job well. If you went to dinner with Carol, you would learn what to expect from the wait staff. She was also employed by Harris Corporation in Titusville, FL.
Carol was the respected matriarch of a large family, her greatest joy in life. She is survived by five children: David, of Merritt Island, FL; Deborah (Carl Bergevin), Dawn, and Daniel (Karen), all of Marcellus, NY; and Douglas (Cheryl) of Rockledge, FL; eleven grandchildren, nine great-grandchildren and one great-great-grandson; a sister-in-law, Mary Schuler of Springfield, OH; and numerous nieces and nephews.
In addition to her parents and husbands, she was predeceased by her five siblings, Joan, William, Barbara, Ronald and Sharon, and a great grandson.
Carol was a member of Divine Mercy Catholic Church on Merritt Island, where she was very involved with her local Council of Catholic Women (CCW). Carol also volunteered for several organizations, and took pleasure in her activities with her Red Hat ladies and her Bunco group.
