Sheryl Lea Snow, 65, of Pettisville, died Tuesday evening, April 11, 2017, at CHWC Bryan Hospital, following a sudden brief illness. Born June 21, 1951, in Hicksville, OH, she was a daughter of Richard and Joyce (Burkhead) Apple. She married the love of her life, Larry D. Snow, on April 24, 1971, in Bryan, OH, in a ceremony led by Pastor Richard Keese.
Sheryl lived her early life in Hicksville, before her parents later settled in Alvordton, and Sheryl graduated from Millcreek-West Unity (Hilltop) High School, Class of 1969.

Sheryl is remembered for her love of shopping, and her hobbies of taking pictures and vegetable and flower gardening. She had talent as a painter, and painted on various craft medias including canvases, ceramics, and woodworking. She and Larry marketed their crafts at various craft shows and they also co-own their puppy business, Snow’s Poodles and Doodles.
