CYNTHIANA, Ky. (WKYT) - Police say a woman was walking across this intersection Monday afternoon when she was hit by a car. The next day, she died.

Cynthiana police say Judy Snedeker, 55, was hit while walking across the intersection of Church and Pleasant Streets. Friends say she was walking to the doctor's office for an appointment. The coroner says she died the next day from blunt force trauma to her head.

Snedeker was a cook at Grand Haven Nursing Home in Cynthiana for seven years. We're also told Snedeker had survived leukemia.

Her coworkers are holding an event at the nursing home where she worked this Sunday for her family and friends. They say it's been tough to deal with her loss.

"She was just like very, you could tell she was outgoing. She had a really good sense of humor. She was a really good listener. We all came in and talked to her about whatever was happening on the floor or how our day was. She was just very involved in all of our lives basically," says Justin Browning, a coworker.

Snedeker's death is still being investigated as an accident.

Friends say they'll release balloons at the event this weekend. Blue balloons for Snedeker's favorite color and orange balloons to represent that she was a leukemia survivor.
