MayBelle Ann (Dennis) Snapp, 74, of Chetek, Wis., passed away peacefully Nov. 13, 2020 , after a courageous battle with Alzheimer’s. She was born Feb. 16, 1946, to Jack and Laura Dennis, in Fort Wayne, Ind. She graduated in 1964 from Petroleum High School in Petroleum, Ind., where she was active in choir, band, and was head drum majorette her senior year. She went on to become a medical technician, and worked several years in Chetek. She met and married Gene Snapp, of Larwill, Ind., on Nov. 13, 1965, at First Presbyterian Church in Bluffton, Ind.
MayBelle vacationed with family to northern Wisconsin many times. She and Gene purchased and moved into a house just off Prairie Lake, where they resided for 55 years. When Gene was drafted with the U.S. Army to Korea shortly after their wedding, MayBelle stayed with her parents for a couple years in Chetek. A handful of years later, they had a son, David, born Feb. 26, 1973.
MayBelle was active for many years with the Chetek Lutheran Church, serving on the alter guild, handbell choir, cooking, baking, and always volunteering when needed. She was an avid quilter, crafter, cook and baker. She found a passion making candy, then delivering it during the holidays. She loved to decorate for every holiday, but especially at Christmas with white lights, greenery and angels everywhere.
MayBelle was obsessed with any sporting events, especially the Green Bay Packers. Many times you needed to leave the room when she told the Packers how to play. Her knowledge of stats and team players was on par with anyone. Back in the day, she could be heard in the stands proudly cheering on the Chetek Bulldogs. During earlier summers, you would find her fundraising, volunteering and supporting the Chetek Hydroflites team (especially for Dave).
She is survived by her husband, Gene; and son, David (Amy). She was preceded in death by her parents.
We want to thank Meadowbrook at Chetek and Dr. Reisner for their care and compassion for MayBelle. Thank you to all family and friends who have provided their stories and fond memories of her, which will be cherished forever.
