Ouida Snipes

Ouida Alligood Snipes was born in Thomas County, Georgia on May 14, 1919, daughter of Nellie and Clyette Alligood. She left in no pain for her eternal home on December 20, 2014. Service will be at the Pelham First Baptist Church at 2:00 PM on Monday, December 22, 2014 with burial in the United Daughters of the Confederacy Memorial Cemetery. Visitation will be Sunday from 4 PM to 6 PM at Willis-Jamerson-Braswell Funeral Home in Pelham. "Bubba", as she was affectionately called by her family, leaves to cherish her precious memory two daughters Gayle (David) of Navarre, FL and Brenda (Larry) of Moultrie, GA; a son Gary of Camden, SC; six grandchildren Keith (Alison), Amy (Dent), Carrie (Eric), Mandy (Steve), Hope and Penny; 10 great grandchildren Brett, Zach, Katie, Kimberly, Tatum, Gabe, Madison, Jordan, Shan, and Max.; and three great-great grandchildren Jacob, Jase and Natalie; and a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends. Ouida was predeceased by husband Grover Snipes; four brothers: Aubrey, Owen, Searcy and Roger; five sisters: Wilma, Lois, Annette, Sara and Sibyl; and grandson Chris Bryan. Pallbearers will be the Deacons of Pelham First Baptist Church. Honorary pallbearers will be the Gleaners Sunday School Bible Class. Ouida was a true child of Christ above all else, who adored her family and many friends. She was a very active member and regular attendant of the Pelham First Baptist Church for over 75 years, serving as Sunday School teacher for many years. She never uttered an unkind word, never smoked or consumed alcohol, considering her mind and body a gift from God and His temple to care for. Ouida enjoyed dancing with her friends every Friday and Saturday night at the Pelham Jamboree and at the Hoedown. We can see her dancing today with wings spread in heaven, surrounded by family with everyone singing. Bubba did not die, she just passed away. She was active in the American Legion Auxillary, Professional Business Women's Club, and an organizer of the Pelham Senior Citizens Center. She has been retired for over forty years from a retail furniture business that she and her husband owned and operated. She will be truly missed by all who adored her.
