Luella Snyder, A Celebration of Life

Long time Milton resident, Luella Snyder, recently passed away, and her absence is felt as a stunning loss to those who love her. She leaves huge shoes to fill, for such a tiny lady, on Milton’s School Board, and in the halls of her beloved Nute High School. Her passion and commitment to Milton’s children — to make every single penny of the school budget improve their education — is known by many. Her dedication is evidenced by her presence via telephone at a School Board meeting very shortly before she passed away.  She loved dogs, and the color pink, but mostly she loved America and the freedoms, rights and privileges inherent in being an American.

A Celebration of Life is being held on June 28, gathering begins at 5 p.m., at the Damon House (Gilman House) which is a school owned property on School Street in Milton between the Elementary and Upper Schools. Ms. Maureen Steer, Chaplain, will say a few words beginning at 5:30 p.m.  All are welcome to share in this time to reflect on Luella’s life in Milton. A dedication of a garden installation is scheduled during this time, then light refreshment and sharing moves to Nute Cafeteria. Donations of light refreshment are welcome, if you like, bring something to share.

Until that time, there are four donation boxes throughout Milton, thanks to the generosity of Milton Hardware, Nancy Wing and Scentimental Resale, and McKenzies Farm. A fourth box is located in the office inside of  Nute High School. One hundred percent of all donations will be contributed to Friends of Nute, a New Hampshire 501(3)c registered nonprofit dedicated to the ongoing improvements and repairs necessary in ‘original’ Nute.

Please join together, as people come from Lue’s years of employment at Thompson Fire Arms, her classmates from Nute, previous board and committee members she served with throughout her years of service, and friends whose hearts she touched, in this Celebration of Life, Luella Snyder.
