By telling her story, Margaret Jo Holcomb Hill Snyder has a better appreciation of her life and the people who play a significant part of it. Starting out as a grief work assignment, Snyder’s compelling journey in discovering herself took four years. She finally releases her personal memoir ““I Am Jo, Jo Am I”” (published by Xlibris), as she remembers what impacted her life throughout the years.

Snyder was born in a small railroad town in eastern Oklahoma two decades after its statehood. She had two marriages and was blessed with five children. In this book, the author details the milestones of her life as well as her connection to her family. This autobiography book also focuses on Oklahoma, from Pioneer Days to Post Modern Era.

“This book [““I Am Jo, Jo Am I””] is about remembering how life was when Mom stayed home and cared for the family, when more Dads made a living wage,     when working for women’s rights was novel,” Snyder tells.

An excerpt from the book reads:
I began to write as a part of the grieving process. The writing grew into a desire to write this memoir and it has been healing, rewarding and illuminating.

About the Author
Margaret Jo Holcomb Hill Snyder was born as the Roaring Twenties fell into the Great Depression in a small county seat railroad town just 20 years after Oklahoma became a state. As the depression sucked the life out of many families, her family moved on up the ladder and her dad became president of Northeastern Oklahoma Junior College in Miami, Oklahoma. Their transfer to Oklahoma City then Elk City in western Oklahoma rounded out her ‘living across Oklahoma’ experience. Then, Snyder left for college, fell in love and married. After 23 years of marriage, Virgil died. But joy did return after much sorrow; she had 20 years of a career she loved and a wonderful second marriage full of fun and travel. Snyder was about four years behind the Greatest Generation and both her husbands were in its glory. She was also on the cusp of the Women’s Movement and she had a great run.
