Anna Jean Snapp

November 26, 1937 — December 30, 2023

Nashville, TN.


Ms. Anna Jean Snapp, age 86, of Nashville, TN passed away peacefully on December 30, 2023, at Southern Hills Hospital, Nashville, TN with her loving family by her side.

Anna was born on November 26, 1937, in Carlisle, Indiana to the late Pliney Blaine Meek and Rosa Gertrude Mulvaney Meek. In her younger years, she was known as Jean, or Jeanie. She was married to CPO William H Snapp of Oaktown, IN on October 28, 1954. They moved from duty station to duty station all over the United States. Their children were born all over the country from coast to coast. They lived in Washington, Rhode Island, Florida, Hawaii, New Mexico, and California. They traveled back home to Indiana as much as possible. They settled in Carlisle, IN after retiring from the Navy, where the family enjoyed church, camping, fishing, and horseback riding together. She worked at, and later owned, the H & R Block Office in Sullivan, IN for many years.

After their divorce in 1978, Anna relocated to Nashville, TN. In Tennessee, Anna enjoyed her careers as a bookkeeper at The Hearth & Grill Shop, a teller at First American/ AmSouth/ Regions bank, bookkeeper at National Linen Service, and a customer service cashier at The Home Depot. She stopped working at the age of 79. She was active in American Business Women’s Association in the 1990’s and never met a stranger. She also enjoyed multiple vacations with friends and family. She managed to go to every state in the US except North Dakota, and her last vacation was to Australia in 2018 at the age of 81. She was a devoted mother and friend. If she knew your name, you were her friend. She would bend over backwards to help in any way with anything. She was greatly loved by all who met her.  

In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by her daughter Cynthia Jean Davis, grandson, SPC Benjamin David Leftrick, great grandson, Josiah William Fisher Hooten and 11 siblings.

Survivors include her children William Henry Snapp, II, Marcy Anne Snapp Runge, Jonna Rose Lilly (Tom), Mary Alice Snapp Leftrick, Pak Keung "Clifton" Wong (Joana) and Michael B. Godwin Sr. (Denise). Grandchildren Renee Michelle Hooten (Kevin), Casey Snapp Lambert, Jessica Schlomer (Brad), William Henry Snapp, III, Jason Henry Schuckman (Crystal), Amelia Rose Spears (Daniel Stanley), Cassidy Chloe Runge, Frankie Anne Runge, Hannah Jonell Lilly and Rob Erdelen. Great grandchildren Layla Jean, Anastsia, Julie Ann, Erica, Chester, Clayton, Kaylee, Veronica, Kyler, Ayden, Brandt, Aubree, Jordyn, Will, Lydia, JT, Robbie and Kate. Great great grandchildren Zaria, Viviana, Kenslee, and Jackson.

It was her wish to be cremated and buried at Harpeth Hills Memory Gardens in Nashville, TN. Family services will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to GiveSendGo (Campaign AnnaJSnapp) to assist the family with final expenses.
