Caryl Lee (Snyder) Frisch, 88, of Marysville, Ohio, died on October 26, 2023, at the home of her daughter, Susan Anderson, where she had been living with the assistance of Loving Care Hospice since March of 2023. She was born on August 17, 1935, in Bellevue, Ohio, the youngest daughter of C. Martin “Marty” and Lucille (Bliss) Snyder. Caryl lost her beloved mother in the summer of 1945, when Caryl was only 10 years old. On December 28, 1946, Marty married Virginia Bell, of Norwalk, OH, and she became the step-mother to the Snyder children. Marty and Virginia went on to have two children of their own. It was at that time that Caryl developed an especially loving relationship with her maternal grandparents, Linda (Kennedy) and John Holley. Gammie and Grandpa Holley spent wonderful days with Caryl. Gammie taught her how to sew, cook, and keep house. Grandpa Holley made Caryl feel special, spending quality time with her and making certain that all her material needs were met.
After graduating from Bellevue High School in 1954, where she was active in business clubs and choir, Caryl began her working life as a draftswoman with the Northern Ohio Telephone Co. in Bellevue. Caryl was especially proud of the first car she ever bought, a 1957 Chevrolet BelAir which was mauve! In 1957, Caryl met her future husband, Alton E. “Al” Frisch, also of Bellevue. The couple were married on July 11, 1959, at the Sorrowful Mother Shrine outside of Bellevue, by Fr. Joseph Lapinski. Al and Caryl set up housekeeping in Bellevue and soon began their family, which was when Caryl became a full-time wife and mother of five daughters. Caryl was always first and foremost, a mother, as she was determined to give her girls the most loving relationship she could. As the girls got older, Caryl went back to work as a Kroger Price Check Shopper, where she ventured to various grocery stores in the area to compare prices of certain goods each week with the Kroger price. Her face was even on the cover of the weekly Kroger ad! Caryl later went on to work for the AAA Travel Agency in Norwalk, a position she thoroughly enjoyed. It was in helping others plan their travels that Caryl was bitten by the “travel bug”, which greatly influenced her life from then on.
After moving to the Columbus area to finish their careers in 1978, Al and Caryl relocated to Florida permanently in retirement in 1992 and began living their life’s dream of living in the sun, as well as traveling. Over the next 21 years, they purchased a series of motor coaches in order to travel through most of the lower 48 states, as well as several provinces in Canada. Al and Caryl also belonged to several motor coach associations and they would ‘rally’ with other members all over the country, making friends wherever they went. During her years in Florida, Caryl was very active in various social groups with other women and served in leadership positions in various motor coach associations. She enjoyed learning and doing new things, such as several types of needle crafts, going to Broadway productions in nearby cities, and playing mah-jong. Caryl loved reading, entertaining and planning social occasions with friends and family as well. Eventually returning to Ohio in 2012, Al and Caryl settled back in Columbus, where most of their family was located.
Caryl is survived by five daughters: Lori (Robert Jr.) Luderman of Defiance, OH; Susan Anderson of Marysville, OH; Jacalyn (Anthony) DiSante of Upper Arlington, OH; Judy Frisch of Delaware, OH; and Beth (Mark) Murphy of Blacklick, OH. Sixteen grandchildren survive their grandmother, as well as 18 great-grandchildren. Caryl is also survived by one brother, M. Alan Snyder, of Catawba Island, OH, as well as one sister, Christine Linder, South Carolina, a sister-in-law, Joan Snyder, Ocala, FL, and a brother and sister-in law, M. Eugene and Norma J. Frisch, Ocala, FL, as well as many nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her husband of 64 years, Alton E. Frisch; parents, C. Martin and Lucille Snyder, her step-mother, Virginia (Bell) Snyder, her sister, Phyllis (Snyder) Robertson, her brother, R. William Snyder, sisters-in-law, Janet (Lepley) Snyder, Edna (Frisch) Wise, Dorothy (Frisch) Jensen, Bernita (Frisch) Bowers, and Norma Jean (Japsen) Frisch; brothers-in-law, Walter P. Robertson, Walter E. Wise, James N. Jensen, Leland A. Bowers, and Charles A. Frisch; two nieces, Karen (Jensen) Comiskey and Lisa (Robertson) Mullet; and four nephews, James Robertson, Scott Bowers, Donald Wise and Dennis Bowers, in infancy.
