Marlene Kay Snider, 85, of Madrid, Iowa, passed away peacefully Tuesday, May 14, 2024 in Des Moines, Iowa.

Marlene Kay (Weir) Snider was born February 2, 1939 in Boone, Iowa. The only child to parents Samuel and Leona Weir of Boone, Iowa. Marlene attended Boone High School and went on to
marry Bill Snider of Madrid, Iowa on December 15, 1956 where they started a family and a home in San Diego, California while Bill served in the naval forces. Following his discharge they
moved back to Madrid, Iowa to raise their family.

While her children were young, Marlene enjoyed being a homemaker. Later, she found her career path in accounting at Greyhound and Mercy Hospital Billing Office. Her most beloved
passion and (most time consuming) was her yard. She was often seen tending to her acreage in the Reddish Edition of Madrid for hours on end; raking nuts, pulling weeds, mowing, and
planting flowers. She would enjoy her labors by sitting outside, reading a book with her beloved dog Bodhi always by her side.

She is survived by her children, Reeca (Lyle) DeGoey, Kimberly (Doug) Carlberg, and Brian Snider. Grandchildren, Holly DeGoey, Ashten (Rob) Hayes, Chauncee (Jimmy) Hyde, Nick
(Ashley) Snider; great-grandchildren, Jantz and Jerzey Hyde. She was preceded in death by her husband Bill Snider, and her parents.
