Margaret N. Snodgrass, 92, taught 1st grade for 20 years

Margaret N. Snodgrass, a longtime Harford County resident and teacher, died Saturday of a heart condition at the Petersburg Home for Ladies in Petersburg, Va. She was 92.

A member of the Harford County Retired Teachers Association, Mrs. Snodgrass taught first grade for almost 20 years at Highland School, her alma mater. She left teaching in the early 1950s after her marriage to Edward P. Snodgrass, who died in 1977.

The couple resided in Street, where Mrs. Snodgrass continued to live until two years ago. She moved to Petersburg to be close to a niece, Elizabeth S. Steele.

"She loved being known as a retired teacher," Mrs. Steele said. "She didn't have any children. She considered her nieces and nephews her children."

Born in Mouth of Wilson, Va., the former Margaret Neikirk was a life member of the Highland Presbyterian Church in Street. For 35 years, she served on the board of managers of the Presbyterian Home in Towson. She also was a member of the William Pace Chapter of Daughters of the American Revolution.

Services will be held at 2 p.m. Tuesday at Highland Presbyterian Church.

Other survivors include a niece, Margaret R. Wilson of Darlington; a nephew, Winfield C. Scarff of Fallston; and eight grandnieces and grandnephews.
