Helen Ann Ferguson Snead

Helen Ann Ferguson Snead, 86, went to her heavenly home on September 4, 2018 surrounded by the family that loved her dearly. Born in Richmond, VA to the late Thomas Ersa and Annie Jewell Ferguson, she was predeceased by her husband of 60 years, Ralph C. Snead, and infant daughter. She is survived by her family blessed by her Godly example: Eula Snead (Bill) Gary of Kenbridge, Patricia Jewell (John) Washburn of Kenbridge; two grandchildren whom she dearly loved, Susan Gary (Tim) Kreis and Steven (Michelle) Gary; seven greatgrandchildren who brought her such joy: Theodore Kreis, William Kreis, Joseph Kreis, Hunter Gary, Richard Kreis, Hayden Gary, and Lilly Gary; her dear friend and sister-inlaw, Katie Snead; and numerous nieces and nephews. She was blessed to have three dear caregivers: Weir Moore, Gloria Jones, and Lynette Ragsdale. Helen was an active member of Kenbridge Baptist Church, where she taught Sunday School in her younger years, and was currently Secretary of the church W.M.U., and she participated in her Sunday School class. In her younger years, she enjoyed sewing and needlework. She made many of the clothes her daughters wore. As a farmer’s wife, she worked very hard, especially during the summers when the family raised tobacco. She worked in the fields until just before lunchtime, then came home and prepared a fullcourse meal for her family and the hired workers -- and did it willingly to help her family. Funeral services were held Friday, Sept. 7, 2018 in the Kenbridge Baptist Church. Interment in the Kenbridge Heights Cemetery.
