Helen F. Snyder, 97, passed peacefully on June 18, 2014, at the Epione Pavilion in Cuba City. Helen was born Jan. 18, 1917, in Franklin Township, the daughter of Lemuel and Henrietta Cooper. Helen married Robert Snyder in Muscoda, on March 26, 1948. They lived in Madison, then Elkhorn, and moved to Cuba City in 1963.
