Born in Port Arthur, Texas, on April 10, 1938, she was the daughter of Walter Peveto and Audrey (Hebert) Peveto. Mary was a fun-loving woman who danced and laughed her way through life. She loved to keep active, often attending festivals, dancing every Friday night at Larry’s French Market and regularly doing aerobics. Mary had a heart of gold and a servant’s heart, and often cooked dinner for her husband and his coworkers at the shipyard. She worked at Palais Royal for some time and loved meeting new people through her job. Mary will be deeply missed by all those she made connections with through her journey through life.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Walter and Audrey Peveto; loving husband of 61 years, Martin Sneed, Sr.; son, Martin Sneed, Jr.; daughter, Edith Faye; grandson, Martin Sneed III; brothers, Walter Peveto, Thomas Peveto and Vernon Peveto; and sister, Barbara Jones.

She is survived by her children, Clyde Sneed and wife Judy of Bridge City and Audrey Peck and husband Charles of Evadale; daughter-in-law, Stacey Henderson; grandchildren, Christopher Sneed and wife Brandy, Shacail Sonnier and husband Josh, Joshua Roy, Blake Roy and wife Sammie, Samantha Roy, Laysha Wilson and Sean Sneed and wife Danielle; 18 great-grandchildren; and sisters-in-law, Christine Vance and Glynda Peveto.
