MARVIN ETHRIDGE "BIRDIE" SNOW, 80, RUSSELL SPRINGS, KY


Marvin Ethridge Snow, 80, fondly known as “Birdie”, of Russell Springs, KY passed away on Sunday, October 10, 2021 at the University of Kentucky Medical Center. He was born on October 22, 1940 in the Rowena Community of Russell County to the late Samuel and Nola Chapman Snow.

 

Birdie got his start in life within a large family of 6 siblings learning farm life on the river bottom as 1 of only 2 boys. Both his father and grandfather drove the Rowena Ferry and taught him skills in farming by the river. While just a boy, he could make straight rows for tobacco and often accompanied his father to till the neighbor’s fields. 

 

Birdie served our nation in the U.S. Army Heavy Armor infantry division. He was an enlisted man in the U.S. Army when he met Peggy Hudson. After a short courtship they eloped with family and friends in tow on New Year’s Eve in 1965. Birdie would often speak fondly of Peggy and her very affectionate family of opening his heart to experience tender love. 

 

Birdie became a career truck driver and his love for driving was passed to his children and grandchildren. He racked up millions of miles and mentored many. Birdie was a member of the Bernard Ridge Church of God, where he gave his heart to God and received deliverance from an addiction to alcohol. He believed in God with child-like faith. 
 

Birdie was a down to earth “man’s man”, and an excellent provider for his family. Raised on a farm, necessity taught him to be a solution person and with a soft heart, he was always looking to help someone in need. Birdie could fix anything and was usually found tinkering in his garage or on his zero-turn mower, “keeping the yard up”. He was a big story-teller who liked to fish and turkey hunt (until he killed two turkeys with one shot). Birdie was a generous man; known to give his knives away - if he took a liking to you. He looked forward to the men’s fellowship breakfast at church. Birdie was well-known for his gravy, and teaching other men at church how to make it.  He loved his black coffee, secretly telling his daughter Debra it’s the only way to have it. 
 

SURVIVORS:

Wife of 55 years: Peggy Snow

3 children: Debra Jo Stephens (Randall Finn) of Covington, Georgia, Steve Ethridge Snow of Russell Springs; Kimberly Lou Rosson (Gary Lawless) of Hurst, Texas

GAYLE LOUISE BURRIS, 67, GREENSBURG, KY

 
Gayle Louise (Freyberger) Burris, 67, of Greensburg, KY passed away on Monday, October 11, 2021 at Taylor Regional Hospital. She was born August 7, 1954 in Evansville, Indiana to the late Fred and Louise Happel Freyberger. 
 
Gayle was a member of Mt Gilead Baptist Church. She professed her faith in Christ Jesus as a young child and carried that faith throughout her life. On November 3, 1990 Gayle and Dan were married at Saloma Baptist Church. She instantly became a mother to Dan’s three children. Gayle was the most thoughtful and giving individual any of us had the pleasure of knowing. Her friends and loved ones always had a card in the mailbox for their birthdays and anniversaries. She kept notes on everyone, remembering what they liked or collected. Somehow, she managed to surprise us all with our favorite treats and special gift bags. Her handle was SavvyShopAholic and it rang true. She treasured finding a deal, extreme couponing and ultimately making the store owe her for taking goods. 
 
Gayle worked at Taylor County RECC until 1992 when she jumped in with both feet with Dan in the auto body repair business. She was CEO and CFO of Dan’s Body Shop. Most of all she was a loving wife to Dan and the best mother to Nikki, Daniel, and Kimberli.
 
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her father-in-law, Bobby Burris and a brother-in-law, Van Tincher.
 
SURVIVORS: 
Her husband: Dan
