Robyn Snyder Primeaux
February 2, 1968 ~ May 30, 2021 (age 53)
Robyn Snyder Primeaux, 53, beloved wife and mother, was called to her eternal resting place, on May 30,2021, after a courageous two-year battle with cancer. She entered this world on February 2, 1968, in Ponca City to Edgar David Snyder and Sharrel Lee Fisher (Snyder).
Robyn grew up in Kaw City, where she lived with her mother, Sharrel, and stepfather Gene Jackson, and stepsister Stacey. Robyn attended Ponca City High School where she played basketball and was involved in the first color guard team at PoHi. A few years after high school, Robyn went to live with her Uncle Charles and Aunt Betty Jo Dickson, in Charlotte, North Carolina. While living there and working at her aunt and uncle’s dry-cleaning business, she met the love of her life, Christopher Alan Primeaux. Robyn and Chris were married June 2, 1990, in Ponca City, Oklahoma, at First Baptist Church. They established their home in Ponca City in March of 1991. They had two children, Colton, and Rebecca Primeaux. In 1998, Robyn and Chris purchased Snyder’s Bois d’ Arc Grocery from her father and stepmother, David and Barbara Snyder. She turned Snyder’s into one of the best catering companies in Ponca City and northern Oklahoma and fell in love with the wedding catering side of the business. Robyn had a servant’s heart, and her time was filled with serving the youth group of First Baptist of Ponca City. From children’s camps to Falls Creek, Robyn loved getting to serve and cook at camps with some of her dearest friends making lifelong memories and spending time with her kids while at camp with them. While she loved serving at church, nothing compared to spending time with her children. There was never a sporting event, dance recital, school event, or talent show that she missed. Robyn was the most supportive and encouraging parent and she did everything she could to be sure her kids were involved in everything they wanted to do. Her kids were her pride and joy. Robyn was an avid Oklahoma State Cowboy fan. She and her family cheered on the Cowboys every fall, attending every home football game most seasons from 1999-2020, and as many wrestling matches, basketball, and baseball games as they could. Family was very important to Robyn. After her mother passed, Robyn took over hosting family events like birthdays, thanksgiving, Christmas, and everything in between. She was the glue that held everyone together. While all these things held a special place in Robyn’s heart, the most important thing to Robyn was her faith in Jesus Christ. Robyn was saved around the young age of 8 years old and went on to live a Christ-centered life and share the love of Jesus with everyone she met.
She is survived by her husband Chris, son Colton Primeaux, and wife Courtney of Ponca City, Oklahoma, daughter Rebecca Chupp and husband Tyler, of Inola, Oklahoma, grandmother, Mary Fisher, stepmother, Barbara Snyder, brother Bart Snyder and wife Cheryl, brother Bret Snyder, and wife Nikki, all of Ponca City, stepbrother Steve Harper, of College Station, Texas, stepsister Stacey Paslay, of Ponca City, stepsister, Sherri Bartlett, and husband Jason of Ponca City, nieces and nephews Rachel Harper, Brandon Snyder, Grant Harper and wife Elizabeth, Cheyenne Snyder, Kaden Paslay, Clark Cash Paslay, and Kyall Paslay, and numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins.
She was preceded in death by her father E. David Snyder, mother Sharrel Jackson, stepfather Gene Jackson, grandparents Bob Snyder, Esther Snyder, Truman Fisher, Jetavee McClaskey, Bill Pelts, and Elsie Jackson, and sister-in-law Allison Harper.
