Marion “City” Snead Cole

Mr. Cole was an engineer for Westinghouse, working on the installation of the Bremo Power Plant. They lived in Fork Union, Charleston, West Virginia, and Richmond. Mr. Cole died suddenly in January 1956. City returned to Fork Union with her young children and built her current home. She proudly raised her three sons there.
She was actively involved in her community as a member of the Fluvanna County Garden Club, Grace Episcopal Church, Fluvanna Library as a volunteer, Fluvanna Historical Society and the Snead Family Board.
City was an incredible historian of her Snead heritage and Fluvanna County. There was nothing she enjoyed more than a “good chat” and could regale you for hours with family matters, politics, religion or whatever subject you chose. At 97 years old, she was still sharp of mind, charming and chatty.
City is survived by her three sons and their wives; Carter and Judy of Richmond, William and Terry of Roanoke, and Andy and Diana of Gastonia, NC. In addition, she leaves her six beloved grandsons: Carter II, Matt, Billy, Ben, Adam and Michael and their families, including five great-grandsons, and three great-granddaughters. She also leaves behind her wonderful friend, Becky Getz with whom she shared many treasured times and adventures.
The family would like to thank the staff of Gordon House for making City’s last weeks of life comfortable and happy. Also our gratitude is extended to her caretakers, Aeron Teratha and Vera Banks, and her good friend and neighbor, Ginny Pollard.
Per her wishes, in lieu of flowers, any donations should be given to Grace Episcopal Church Memorial Fund, PO. Box 95, Bremo Bluff, VA 23022.
A memorial and celebration of her life will be held at Grace Episcopal Church, 754 Bremo Bluff Road, Bremo Bluff, Va. 23022 on Saturday, February 20, 2016 at 11 a.m. with her friends, Reverend Peter Way and Reverend Thomas Hendrickson officiating.
Condolences may be sent to the family at
