Jane Snavely Hurst of Salem, VA, passed away early on Monday, November 2, 2020, at Radford Health and Rehab. She was a lifelong member of Fort Lewis Christian Church and retired from General Electric. She was preceded in death by her parents, Henry and Elizabeth Snavely; her husband Edison, daughter Amy Syrja; and all her siblings, Dot Reece (Keffer), Rachel Conley (Aubrey), Louise Robbins (Burgess), Ruth Rupe, Tom Snavley. She always said she was too stubborn to let any of them outlive her.
Ed has been waiting in heaven for this woman since 2008 and her daughter, Amy Syrja since 2009.
Survivors include her daughter, Janice Huffman (Steve Hoback); son-in-law, Dennis Syrja; grandchildren, Jamie Huffman (Lisa), Cameron Syrja (Morgan); great-grandchildren, Edison Huffman, Lucy Huffman, and CJ Syrja.
The family would like to thank the staff at JC Thomas Center at Richfield and Radford Health and Rehab, Good Sam Hospice, and all her personal sitters that helped during the last five years of her Alzheimer journey.
A graveside service will be conducted at 12 p.m. on Friday, November 6, 2020, at the Highland Memory Gardens in Dublin, VA, with Rev. Ben Moore officiating.
Those attending the service are asked to wear a face mask and practice social distancing as Janice has become somewhat of a germophobe during COVID-19.
Jane loved flowers so graveside flowers would be appreciated.

I was sad upon hearing of ms. Jane's passing. I often thought of her and missed out a lot by not seeing her. The time l spent with her in Richfield was always so pleasant when l was in her company. She was a lady with depth of personality and much grace, and I will never forget her. My heart goes out to you Janice, and to your whole family.... But we know that this seperation is just for a while, for one day we will not have to say good will see yor mom again, because of what Jesus did for us, and she had faith in Him, l know this....
May God's grace carry you trough this difficult time...May He give you peace.
With love and prayers - your mom's caretaker

Janice, I just wanted to send my sympathy on the loss of your mother. She and my mom
were great, great friends. Jane was always doing for others. She helped our family through a lot
of very tough times. She was a loving, caring person with a quick smile. She was so kind to me
all the years I knew her and your dad. Know that she is resting in heaven now and is not suffering
anymore. She was a special lady.

Janice and family, this is a wonderful picture of Jane and a great write-up. I was talking with Darlene (?) (works at Kroger), daughter of the neighbor that lived next to Jane who died this past year. She reminded me of how much they enjoyed the Young and the Restless and used to sit on Jane's porch and compare notes. May you cherish the fond memories you have of your parents ...two wonderful people. Jennie Sue Murdock
