Barbara J. "Barb" Snuggs, 69, passed on to her reward on Sunday, November 28, 2010 at Kavanagh House in Des Moines, from complications of a stroke. Funeral services will be held at 10:30 a.m. on Thursday, December 2, at Westminster Presbyterian Church located at 4114 Allison Avenue in Des Moines, of which she was a member. In agreement with Barb's wishes, cremation rites will follow services on Thursday. A private committal service will take place at a later date.

Barb was born in Des Moines, Iowa to James Dorus and Marilyn Marie (Marshall) Burgess. Barb loved the Lord and her church. Loved to play hand bells, and bake and cook for everyone she loved. She was a gentle soul who chose to see the good in all people rather than the negative. Barb had recently taken up quilting and although new to the hobby, everything had to be as perfect as she could make it. Barb loved her children and grandchildren very much.

She is survived and lovingly remembered by her husband, Keith Snuggs; two sons, Tom (Kathy) Hamilton and Bill Hamilton; sister, Beverly Schreiner; four grandchildren, Nick, Becky, Mandy and Joey; two nephews, Todd and Steve Schreiner; and many beloved cousins and friends. Barb was preceded in death by her parents.

Visitation will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, December 1, at Iles Funeral Homes – Westover Chapel in Des Moines.

The family has respectfully requested that any memorial contributions be made to Westminster Presbyterian Church.
