ALENE TONETTE SNYDER

Alene Tonette Snyder, 81, passed away peacefully on July 1, 2019.

Born a block from Green Lake, Tonette graduated from Lincoln High School where she was voted Ms. Lincoln in 1956 by her classmates. After high school, she attended Pacific Lutheran University for 2 years before graduating from the University of Washington where she met her husband of 57 years, Gary.

Tonette was an amazing mother of three boys and the loving grandmother of seven. She was the 3rd in the line of six Erickson girls and loved her sisters dearly. A gifted sculptor, dancer, painter, writer & singer, she loved unconditionally and was known for her joyous, infectious laughter! She spread warmth & light wherever she went.

Most of all, Tonette lived by her faith in Jesus – emulating kindness, patience and love. She will be dearly missed by all the family and friends who had the pleasure of knowing her!

A service celebrating Tonette’s life will be held on Saturday, August 24 at 2pm at Evergreen Covenant Church on Mercer Island.
