Amy Nell Waterman Snider, 92 of Madisonville, KY formerly of Taylorville, IL passed away, Wednesday, August 9, 2017 at Baptist Health in Madisonville.

Mrs. Snider was a member of Taylorville Christian Church and attended the Hope Alive Service at Madisonville First United Methodist Church. On Thursdays, she enjoyed Girls' Day Out with her 5 generations. After getting her hair done, a restaurant was selected and we all (as many were able) went out for dinner and hours of conversation. She enjoyed working in her flower garden, reading new recipes (hated to cook!) and enjoyed watching her hummers (hummingbirds). She loved her family most.
