Biographical sketch: Verda Adell (Snider) Weber (1917-2010) was the daughter of Clemens Henry Snider and Samantha (Biehn). Her parents moved to Saskatchewan where the family farmed near Guernsey. She came to Waterloo, Ontario in 1939 and worked as a maid. She married Samuel W. Weber in 1944; the couple had 4 daughters. They bought a 60 acre farm on Lexington and Bridge streets in Waterloo in 1946. Over the years they subdivided their land as the city moved closer, and Sam quit farming to run an excavating business. In 1981 they sold their remaining 2 acre lot and moved into Waterloo.
