Emma Geneva Byrd, of Horse Shoe, fell asleep Monday, April 13, 2020, and awoke in Heaven to meet her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

She was the daughter of the late Richard and Blanche Snoddy. Two brothers, George and Buford Snoddy, and three sisters, Lorrane Stepp, Janice Huntsinger and Ethel Snoddy, preceded her in death.

Survivors include the love of her life for 60 years, her husband, Harry Lee Byrd; her children, Sandra (Sandy) Duncan and husband, Chris, Dwane Byrd and wife, Melinda, Lucinda Hart and husband, Jeff, all of Horse Shoe; six grandchildren, Kelly Cagle and husband, Josh, Casey Duncan and wife, Christina, Julie Hart, Samantha Byrd, Stephanie Byrd and Cassie Hart, all of Horse Shoe; two great-grandchildren, Wyatt and Madelyn Grace Cagle, of Horse Shoe; and one brother, Theodore Snoddy.

She was a member of Pleasant Grove Baptist Church.

She enjoyed sewing, cooking, gardening, and playing and singing bluegrass gospel music. Her fiddle could be heard in the valley where she lived. Most of all, she loved her family and enjoyed being with them. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. She will be dearly missed but not forgotten. As God is gathering his children home, the family rejoices that their mom heard his voice.

Due to the current situation, the family will be having a private gravesite service. A celebration of life will be scheduled at a later date.
