    Helen Ann Ferguson Snead, 86, went to her heavenly home on September 4, 2018 surrounded by the family that loved her dearly. Born in Richmond, Va. to the late Thomas Ersa and Annie Jewell Ferguson, and predeceased by her husband of sixty years, Ralph C. Snead, infant daughter and brother, Edward C. Ferguson. She is survived by her family blessed by her Godly example: Eula Snead (Bill) Gary of Kenbridge, Patricia Jewell (John) Washburn of Kenbridge; two grandchildren whom she dearly loved, Susan Gary (Tim) Kreis and Steven (Michelle) Gary; seven great-grandchildren brought her such joy: Theodore Kreis, William Kreis, Joseph Kreis, Hunter Gary, Richard Kreis, Hayden Gary and Lilly Gary; her dear friend and sister-in-law, Katie Snead; and numerous nieces and nephews. She was blessed to have three dear caregivers, Weir Moore, Gloria Jones and Lynette Ragsdale.
