04/03/1927 - 10/26/2023

Irma Rhode Snider, a devoted wife, beloved mother, and respected educator, peacefully passed away on October 26, 2023, at the age of 96. Born on April 3, 1927 in Charleston, South Carolina, Irma lived a life filled with love, laughter, and a dedication to her family and community.

In 1961, Irma earned her B.S. Degree from the College of Charleston.  After that, her passion for education led her to a fulfilling career as a teacher in the Charleston County school system. After many years of inspiring and shaping young minds, she retired with the gratitude and admiration of both her colleagues and students.

Beyond her professional achievements, Irma found joy in fishing and gardening, finding solace and contentment in the great outdoors. She was a member of Delta Kappa Gamma, a society that advocates for the advancement of women educators, and a member of Balfour United Methodist Church.

She is survived by her loving husband of 76 years, Elton G. Snider, who stood by her side through thick and thin. Together, they built a life filled with joy, shared experiences, and unwavering companionship. Irma is also remembered lovingly by her two daughters and three cherished grandchildren, whose lives she influenced with her wisdom, kindness, and unconditional love.

In accordance with Irma’s wishes, no services will be held.  Irma Rhode Snider will forever be held in our hearts, her memory a source of inspiration and joy.

Irma was my dear neighbor for over 20 years and I will miss her very much. She loved her garden and always brought us tomatoes and other things that she grew through the years. She had a very sweet spirit and I am sure she is bringing joy in heaven right now. My heart goes out to her loving husband Elton. Rest in peace Irma.
