Obituary

A people magnet, Toby Snyder, 79, passed away Monday, January 2, 2023, in Harrison, Arkansas. Toby finally succumbed after a months-long battle with incurable cancer, in her home in the care of four of her best friends.

Toby was born August 1, 1943, to Al and Lil Blumsack in Boston, Massachusetts.  She is survived by her brother, Larry Blumsack, his wife Carol, Toby’s nephews, Joel Blumsack, Paul Blumsack and Michael Blumsack, and great nieces and a great nephew. 

Toby took great joy in getting to know the people around her.  With both humor and straight talk, she improved the lives of anyone she touched as she went about her work in real estate, sales and travel, or just in her daily outings. When Toby relocated from Miami to Harrison, she immediately made her mark.  Many knew her from her years operating Main Street Trader on the square.  Others knew her from her dedication in helping to establish a Hospice House in Harrison.  Who but Toby would have the nerve to cold-call antique appraisers from The Antiques Roadshow and get them to Harrison for multiple hospice fundraisers.  People across the country knew Toby as their travel agent of choice for the perfect river cruise or trip around the world. 

Toby was a fabulous cook and foodie and will be remembered for always showing up with treats, sweets, cakes, cookies or big bowls of chili and soups to share with the community.  Toby had a deep love for animals and over the years adopted and fostered numerous cats.  She held a warm spot for Labrador Retrievers and took her dogs IV and then Marley with her everywhere. 

Memorial gifts may be made to Ozark Humane Society, P. O. Box 542, Harrison, Arkansas 72602, ozarkhumanesociety.org.
