[linux-lvm] Question re: deleting an LV...

Due to a misunderstanding about how LVM snapshots work when I set up
this system, I now need to delete an LV I had created to use for this
purpose (I thought I had to pre-create the LV).
Currently I have:
ACTIVE '/dev/vg/tmp' [5.00 GiB] inherit
ACTIVE '/dev/vg/log' [5.00 GiB] inherit
ACTIVE '/dev/vg/vtmp' [5.00 GiB] inherit
ACTIVE '/dev/vg/var' [700.00 GiB] inherit
ACTIVE '/dev/vg/snaps' [4.00 GiB] inherit
I just need to delete the /dev/vg/snaps LV, so that that 4GB is
available for my LVM snapshots.
Am I correct that all I have to do is:
# umount /dev/vg/snaps
# lvremove /dev/vg/snaps
Then remove this line from fstab?
This would then result in my VG having 4GB available for taking LVM
