Obituary for Emma Jane Baer (Snyder)

Emma Jane Baer, 89, formerly of West Wyomissing, passed away at Mifflin Court on Thursday, March 4, 2021.

Born in Shoemakersville, she was the daughter of the late Homer and Dorothy (Leibensperger) Snyder.

Emma graduated from Perry Township High School in 1949 and Kutztown State College with a bachelor's degree in Education in 1953.

She was employed as an art teacher at Wilson School District for 30 years until her retirement in 1993. She was loved by her peers and students alike.

Emma is survived by her two daughters, Korie L. (Larry) Sandridge of Sinking Spring and Kristie L. (Matthew) Zielinski of Wyomissing. She is also survived by two grandsons, Dr. Brian C. Sandridge, Columbus OH and Andrew (Kendie) Sandridge, Perryville MD.

Emma enjoyed traveling to the Christmas Markets of Germany, Austria, London, and Paris by way of the Concorde, and cruising on Queen Mary II. She instilled the love of the Indian River Bay and Delaware in her daughters and grandsons. She became an avid golfer after retirement and taught her grandsons the game.

A special thank you to all the healthcare heroes who provided outstanding care and compassion during this difficult time.

Dear Korie, Kristie, and Families,
I am so sad to read of your mother's passing. She was a wonderful friend, colleague, and terrific art teacher to my wife at Sinking Spring and me at Lower Heidelberg. My students would often clap when she arrived to teach. She was so creative.
Our deepest sympathies,
Richard (and Peg) Houser
P.S. We will send a contribution to the Shriners Hospital for Children in Em's memory.

I would like to extend my deepest sympathies to your family. Mrs. Baer was not only an amazing art teacher, she was a beautiful person and a great neighbor! I remember her fondly while I grew up on Cleveland Ave. I also remember the great art classes when she taught at West Wyomissing Elementary! Thinking of all of you during this tough time.

I want to extend my deepest sympathies to your family on the passing of Em. I taught with Em at Cornwall Terrace. I literally think of Em every day. She made a mug tree for me 31 years ago...with 21 pegs to hold 21 mugs...and we use it every day! Em took me to see Keith Haring, and she came to Philly to my house to see Wyland paint the whaling wall...and although I only saw her sporadically after CT, she was/is always in my heart. My prayers to you all, Patti Manuel

My mother was at Mifflin with Emma [ Kathryn Stricker]. They ate meals together and left notes for each other when they missed each other. [ Mom was an early riser]. Moms aide made a scrapbook of the notes Emma wrote which we have. She also made cute little drawings. Emma was the only person Kathryn got close to so we really appreciated her friendliness. The Stricker family sends their deepest sympathy.
