Carolyn Dawn (Snyder) Friend

April 11, 1951 ~ October 10, 2017 (age 66)

Carolyn Dawn Friend, 66, of Friendsville, MD, died peacefully under the care of Excela Hospice and her excellent care team at Greater Pittsburgh Rehab and Nursing Center, Greensburg, PA, on Tuesday, October 10, 2017.

Born April 11, 1951 in Wilkinsburg, PA, she was the daughter of Imogene (McKenzie) Snyder, Export, PA and the late Warren Calvin Snyder. 

She was the beloved wife of the late Donald Walter Friend; adored and cherished mother to, Angela Dawn Davis, Greensburg, PA; she was a wonderful "Deed" to her two grandchildren, Cody Dale and Casey Dawn Davis; one brother, Warren Snyder, Jr., Kittanning, PA.

Mrs. Friend enjoyed spending time with her daughter and grandchildren and traveling with her late husband. One of her favorite destinations was Biltmore Estate. She spent most of her days outside finding work that needed done and telling others how to do it. She enjoyed the thrill of attending and watching NASCAR races and for every hockey game the Penguins lost she would cheer louder, always rooting for her beloved Ovie and the Washington Caps. She had a grand sense of humor that always brought out laughter in anyone near her. If she was laughing with you or at you remained secret to all but her.

She will be dearly missed by her daughter and grandchildren who she taught how to always be strong and never let them see you sweat.

At her request she will be cremated.

Newman Funeral Homes, P.A., 179 Miller St., Grantsville, MD, is in charge of cremation arrangements.
