There is a hole that your life has left in our community and we are here with broken hearts. You are home now, safe in the arms of Jesus. We will miss your laugh and contagious smile.
Kelli, your friendship is something that I will always hold near and dear to my heart. Rest in peace, my beautiful friend! As we mourn the loss of your joyous, gentle presence here we know that you are being welcomed home by Jesus!! Your strength and trust in Jesus will always be something I treasure! It's with a heavy heart I post this photo, but I find closure and peace in knowing that you are with your loving heavenly Father!
Your life will bring about the most beautiful and joyous celebration. Oh, you are so so loved, my sweet friend. Thank you for the many, many ways you shared your kind, loving, gentle and generous heart. May you find the greatest rest and peace in the arms of Jesus as He welcomes you home.
You were an awesome friend and a great youth leader. You brought so much life to people and nobody will forget you and the incredible impact you had in people's lives..
I love you so much, Kelli Snider!
I will miss you more than I can ever express.
Kelli, you were one amazing woman; your gentle spirit and beautiful soul were so evident in everything you did. Your genuine care for others and servant heart was such a blessing and you always made an effort to talk to everyone. I was so lucky to be able to serve with you in many capacities, and I am so thankful for the opportunities we had together and the days and nights out at the lake.
Kelli Snider, we were inseparable when we were in kindergarten and grade one and over the years life took us in different directions but you had a lasting impact. That was who God created you to be. Someone who made a difference by living out the truth in love. You always saw the best in people and lived with a joy that was contagious.
From great times at Mogul mania, paint ball, Canadian airband Idol, rockathon, youth retreats, youth group/bible study, youth executive, lots of long coffee visits at Nipawin DQ and many more excellent times, I knew first hand how much she lived every day surrendered to God's purposes.
Loved leading a bible study with you! You were so full of light and joy (and some sass)! Our slurpee date will be moved till heaven one day! I hope you try all the kinds so you can tell me which are the best! ha!
RIP sweet Kelli!
So thankful for your sweet life, our Kelli. We are heart broken to have lost our niece. Our kids love you and are so sad to have lost such a wonderful cousin who always took time for them and others. You have been an example to us of how to love God and to be content.
Kelli Snider, your beautiful personality will be deeply missed.
Rest in peace, to the kindest person I've ever had the pleasure of working with. Thank you for being so open and always willing to lend an ear on tough times. I will forever miss your stories of your trips with friends.
Words cannot express our family's sadness as we lost our precious Kelli last evening. We all have so many special memories of her and family times together. Her gorgeous smile will always have a special place in my heart. We love you, Kel, and are comforted knowing that you are in loving arms forever. My heart is in a million pieces.
My heart is broken to find out this evening that you are gone! I loved having you live with us while you were taking the class at Siast. I loved our deep talks about God and spending time taking late into the night.
Kelli Snider, you were a light to this world.
My life was better for having known you!
So many great memories from our camp years. You had such a pure heart and a sunny smile. I always admired your boldness and faith. You have touched more lives than I'm sure you'd ever dreamed, and I know that you have found your place with the Father.
Your relationship with Christ was very evident and you encouraged me and many others and showed what it meant to be a follower of Christ. You have impacted so many lives from where you have volunteered.
Well my sweet sweet Kelli Snider, I don't know what to say. Here we are, all of us Snider cousins, not that long ago. There will be a hole that no one else will fill. Your love for God was always so encouraging and your smile and kindness was contagious. ❤️ You will be deeply missed by us all.
You always made youth fun and were super easy to talk to! I enjoyed our frozen yogurt dates
you will be missed dearly
I just wanted to say that we will miss you with all of our hearts and mind. But God needed you with him. I will pray for your safe trip to him.
My heart is devastated for the Snider family! I send my prayers and love to her family and all those who knew and loved her. She was such an amazing woman of God, always wanting to follow God and be obedient to His call for her life. I've known her since she was 13 and saw her passion for God grow over the years!
I remember our last conversation, how you said, "I have God and my family and I don't need anything else." I'll never forget those words, Kelli. You now have everything you will ever need - all your desires are fulfilled.
What a beautiful life...It was an honor hearing your story throughout our car ride and sharing with one another about faith and life. Hearing how much you loved your massive family and massive family reunions. I loved how we got to watch one of my favorite musicals together and literally laugh out loud to all funny parts.
This morning I came across this note that Kelli had written for me right as I was transitioning from high school into Esthetics. Kelli was my mentor throughout high school and she always made time to see me when I needed someone to talk too. Countless times I brought up issues I was struggling with, she would encourage me with the word and help me to keep my focus on Jesus and remind me I wasn't facing it alone.
Your hugs, smiles and friendship won't be forgotten. Looking forward to another one of your hugs when we meet up again in heaven some day!
Thank you Jesus for giving me this opportunity to know this girl whose heart was just on fire for You. I thank You also for the assurance we have that she is with You. The One she loves so dearly. Thank You for making her who she was. She was real. You always knew where Kelli Snider stood. She never gave up on people. She was a real giver!
This girl was absolutely stunning and I am so proud of who she was.
Thanks for showing me your favorite ice-cream place and helping me find my aunty's acreage, which was an adventure of its own. Thanks for your kind words. I know you are in Heaven with Jesus now, the one you love the most, and I bet the architecture in your new home is fabulous just like you.
When I see Kelli Snider's life. I see someone who knew how to love people well, wholeheartedly and selflessly. In my small time of knowing her life, I could see her heart for her family was huge.
I know that God will continue to influence many through her life.
Her generosity was contagious and she knew the power of serving. She is a precious daughter of the King and I know that God is very pleased with her.
I prayed for friends one year and you, the beautiful Kelli, were an answer to that prayer. Here on earth you sang like an angel and I have no doubt in my mind that now you are singing with the angels and Jesus Himself in heaven, fear free, insecurity free, doubt free, tear free and completely full of a supernatural joy and peace those of us still on earth can only dream about.
Kelli, you taught me the aspect of prayer. That it's powerful to pray right away for someone when you say "I'll be praying for you." You can always pray more later but it's wise to send a short prayer heavenward right away, just in case forgetfulness gets in the way. It doesn't hurt to pray but it could hurt very much to not pray.
She reached out to everyone and anyone,
and never for her own gain.
You will be missed, our memories of you forever cherished. Love you, friend!
Although we did not have you for a long time, you impacted us all. I will miss that smile, that huge heart for others, that helping spirit, that love of serving God and others, the courage and determination with which you lived, and your independent spirit.
Although I only knew her for a short while and very little, she made an impact on my life and, seeing all the Facebook posts, countless others as well. Kelli Snider, your love for God and others, your beautiful, kind heart are incredible!
Kelli, you are missed by so many but we know we'll see you again
As I remember her all I can think of is her welcoming smile and her warm heart to be an ear to hear.
She truly had a heart of gold! I have peace knowing that she is now with her Heavenly Father! But I will always remember the impact that she had on my life.
"Be Still and Know that I am God". He is God - in chaos, heartbreak, grief, joy, sadness, remembrance...He is the God I love and the One I will serve all my days.
Rest and Rejoice in the loving arms of your Saviour, Kelli Snider, and thank you for the impact you had on my life. 💞
We will celebrate you, Kelli, and rejoice that you are no longer bound by human limitations but are free and happy to live with Jesus forever.
As we recalled hilarious and meaningful moments we have shared with you, it became glaringly evident just how deeply you got it...Kell, you knew the way. You got it. We could see it in your life. Your words spoke life and your life spoke hope even louder than your words did.
Sweet Kelli, as many of your friends sat together to remember you the words were repeated, “She got it.”
Kelli, your beautiful smile, contagious laugh, and love for the Lord will be forever missed!
Reminiscing about this incredibly positive and Godly woman as we are about to celebrate her life this weekend. Miss you Kelli!! I can only imagine you are singing in heaven right now.
My family has been overwhelmed with what family and friends have done to help us through life without her. The impact Kelli's caring heart had on people has been so evident and we are encouraged knowing she lived her life to the full. She chose to look at the positive side of things when life threw her curve balls.
We are confident she is rejoicing in heaven with her heavenly father that she had such an intimate relationship with. We will miss her every day and never forget her precious smile and her exuberance for life.
Thank you everyone for your love and support during the last few days
