Roslyn Voreen (Knight) Snow passed away peacefully on Saturday, October 10, 2020, at the age of 102. Roslyn was born on June 20, 1918, at Cricket Flat, Oregon, to Sam & Verda Knight. She was the granddaughter of pioneers to the Grand Ronde Valley who had come west on the Oregon Trail in 1865.
After graduation from Imbler High School she attended the Draper School of Commerce in Imbler. Upon completion of that program she began doing accounting work that she continued for the rest of her working life; the big exception being in 1968 when she was selected to learn programming for the IBM Computer System 3 while working for Kascom Communications. During World War 2, Roslyn managed the financial records for the Swan Island Shipyard.
Roslyn met Raymond E Snow in 1950 in the balcony of First Presbyterian Church in Portland, Oregon. They were married on September 30 of that year. Their first child, Raymond (Larry) was born in 1953 and their second, David, was born in 1955. In 1957 they moved to Pendleton, Oregon and in 1959 to Boise, Idaho where she lived until 2004. In 2004 Roslyn moved to the Golden Glow Tower in Nampa.
In retirement Roslyn enjoyed doing accounting work for University Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and traveling with Ray in their tent trailer. Before Ray’s stroke in 1993, they managed to visit most of the National Parks west of the Mississippi. She also enjoyed tending to her flowers and vegetables in their large backyard. She also enjoyed reading books on almost any subject. When she moved to the Golden Glow Tower in Nampa, Idaho, Roslyn took great delight in leading the exercise classes for her fellow residents.
Roslyn is preceded in death by her parents, her brother Loren, and her husband Ray. She is survived by both her sons, Larry & David, their wives, Joan and Diana, 4 grandchildren Melissa, Chris, John, Leah, and 3 great grandchildren, Timothy, Ruth, and Karis. A funeral for Roslyn will be held at the Dry Creek Cemetery in Boise, at 1 p.m., on Friday, October 16, preceded by a visitation from 10 a.m., to 12 p.m. at the Alden Waggoner Funeral Home, 5400 Fairview Ave, in Boise.
