ASHLAND — Hospice of North Central Ohio’s board of directors has named Todd Snyder its newest member.
A Mansfield native with 35 years of experience providing funeral services in the community, Snyder brings a wealth of professional knowledge to the organization.

As with any profession, the difference is in the details and the dedication of the team members. So, I’m honored to join the board of an organization whose goals combine compassion and dignity, respect and professionalism.”
