I'm so sorry to hear of Mrs. Snows passing. From everything I've read, she was an amazing woman and will be missed. Please Cmgive the family my sincerest condolences. Judy (Pace) Rogers.
I am deeply saddened to learn that we’ve lost Leta. She had me hooked as a friend forever, upon first meeting her. She was generous, beautiful, thoughtful, multi-talented, spunky and fun. I met Dr. Snow and Leta when I was in fund-raising for UAMS. She brightened my day every time I was around her. I will remember her family in my prayers as they face the days ahead. God bless the Snow family.
Leta Mae and Dr. Snow were some of the pioneers of medicine in Northern Arkansas, and Mrs. Snow’s resume’ reflects the value she brought to the area. God bless your family in this time of sorrow, and May He continue his blessings for the future.
So sorry to hear of the loss of such a beautiful individual, wife and mother. May you have strength and peace as you transition through this loss with precious memories.
So sorry for your loss, she was such a sweet person.Karla & Bob Axel

Bill and family, just know that we are saddened by the loss of this sweet, sweet lady. Many memories of walking with Leta through her flowers and discussing and admiring each of them. Take care, Bill, we love you. Jo Anne and Carl Dukes
One of the most inspirational most gorgeous women in my life walked through heavens gates and is with her Lord that she loved with her heart and soul😇🙏🏻❤️I love this family. One of the many things she did for me was make sure I had a good self esteem has a child telling me, “it’s alright if you can’t do advanced math you can sing and you will go far young lady with your talents.” As an adult she supported me in all area’s of life even my Mary Kay, but mostly she’d loved me to come visit her beautiful home and tour her huge flower gardens enjoying her beautiful brunch. I love you Amanda Snow Doty❤️😇❤️🙏🏻

I'm so sorry for your loss all my thoughts and prayers are with your whole family Wanda Evans
Dr. Snow and Family, we are very sorry for your loss. Mother, Edna Wallace, was especially fond of all of you. We appreciate the kind relationship you and Mrs. Snow and girls had with her, and to us by extension. Prayers and love.
My heartfelt sympathy is extended to the family.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Dr. Snow and his girls. Mrs. Leta was such a blessing to our family, she loved our kids like they were her own. Our kids called her their Arkansas grandmother… we were so far from family during our time in Mountain Home and she was an absolute blessing to us. Though we have tears today we are grateful to God for putting her in our lives and are thankful for the blessed hope we have in Jesus.
Thoughts and prayers for the loss of a great nurse, really enjoyed my working years with her. So sorry for your loss Dr. Snow and family
The Dr. Robert and Rebecca family send prayers to Bill and the beautiful Snow ladies. Leta was the definition of being a "Lady". Strong, caring, and possessing an sharp intelligent mind. She was an amazing nurse and mother. Becky wishes she could be there to support all of the family. Leta, Thank you for your friendship.

Snow Family, I am so sorry to read of the passing of Ms Snow. She was a gem; so kind and talented. The world is a better place because of her. She was a great friend to my mother, Juanita.
I am so pained at this loss. My heart goes out to the entire Snow family. Leta was one of my favorite people
Words can't express the empath I feel for you and family. I first met Mrs. Snow, when I asked her to judge our beauty pageant, you both come to Norfork School w/o hesitation. I can remember the joy, and professionalism she shared as she judged the pageant. She will be greatly missed. Please know that I have all of You in my prayers. I prayed that our Lord will continue to carry and comfort you through this most difficult time. Just think, She knows all the answers to the questions we've always wondered about. With all my prayers and affection, Dianne

Heaven’s gardens will flourish.
