Mary Clement Obituary (1962-2022) – Greensboro, NC
Clement, Mary Price Snyder
August 16, 1962 – January 2, 2022
Mary Price Snyder Clement, 59, was called home on Sunday, January 2, 2022 to be with the Lord. Born on August 16, 1962 (on the same birthday as her mother) to Wilmer and Lois Price. Mary attended Jamestown Elementary, Jamestown Middle School, and Ragsdale High School. In 1981 she married Michael Snyder. Together they had two children, Jessica Marie Snyder and Justin Michael Snyder. Although divorced, Mary and Mike remained lifelong friends. In 1994, Mary reunited with her childhood friend, Joe Clement, and found her true soul mate. Mary and Joe were together for 28 years and were married on August 17, 2012 (the same day as their parents’ anniversary) for 9 1/2 of those years. True love is hard to define, but Mary and Joseph were. Mary was a strong and devout woman. Made evident by her care for son Justin, who was born with a heart condition. Justin had numerous surgeries and although the whole family was there, it was Mary who knew about all of the procedures and met the doctors and nurses and staff who all looked after Justin. Mary was a caregiver at heart who placed the needs of others above her own. Whenever someone in the family was sick or in the hospital, Mary and Joe were there to support them. Mary valued the faith and the family above all else. Mary’s goal was to “make memories” and she pursued this goal with enthusiasm – always planning the next family trip, the next vacation or the next meeting. Mary was the absolute Queen of Cool … she rode a cute purple Harley Softail Deuce and was a Bon Jovi super fan. A loving and creative throat for her three grandchildren and they meant the world to her! Mary made up songs for the grandchildren – including “Grandma drives a Harley all day” and “Oh Heavenly Father”. She was so proud of her daughter, son-in-law, and grandchildren; She loved knowing that they are all saved, are serving the Lord, and are growing in their faith every day.
Mary’s death was preceded by parents Wilmer and Lois Price, brother Thomas Price, and son Justin Snyder. Her loving and devoted husband Joe Clement, daughter Jessica Snyder Lynch, son-in-law Dustin Lynch, grandsons Holly Lynch, Jacob Lynch and Luke Lynch survived. Sisters Karen Price Ransdell, Sharon Price Miller, Deborah Price Thomas, Ruth Price Tucker and Elizabeth Price Jordan also survived; Nephews Jason Heaton, Josh Ransdell, Matthew Miller, Andrew Gore, Zachary Tucker, Jonathan Ransdell, Adam Gore, Daniel Tucker, and Ryan Reznichek; Nieces Jodi Price Child, Hannah Jordan and Sarah Jordan.
We all feel blessed to have known, loved and shared this journey in life with Mary. Until we’re all in heaven together again … we’ll all be livin ‘on a prayer and love you more!
