She was the first child of Clarence and Marian Isabell Rich Wood. She attended Bonnyview Elementary School, Murray Jr. High, and graduated from Murray High School in 1944. Growing up she attended to chores around the home, and loved visiting with her Grandmother Rich on weekends. She had many fond memories of life in Murray and with her many friends in Bennion, where her grandparents lived. One of her fond memories was working at the Anderson’s Drug Store and Soda Fountain where she met many fascinating people.\r\n\r\nAfter graduating from Murray High School, she attended Henager’s Business School acquiring secretarial skills. She went to work at the Murray Buick Dealership and the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company. After raising her children, she was employed for 17 years by the Utah Department of Job Service.\r\n\r\nJean and Donald Huish Snarr began their courtship in Murray and were married September 26, 1951 in the Salt Lake LDS Temple. Don’s job transferred them to Omaha, Nebraska, where they made their first home across the Missouri River in Council Bluffs, Iowa. This is where their first two children were born. Upon returning to Murray, they built a new home on an acre lot from the Snarr family farm where they raised their seven children. She was the heart of the home, loved her family, and is grateful that her children know how to work and are productive citizens of the community. Don and Jean celebrated 67 years of marriage before Don’s passing in 2018.\r\n\r\nJean enjoyed many activities and pursuits during her lifetime, caring for her rose and flower gardens, beautifying her home, cooking and baking, serving others, family genealogy research, quilting, ceramics, playing fast pitch softball, and canning fruits and vegetables from the garden. Memories of the aroma of freshly baked bread, spread with home churned butter and jam, made a wonderful after school treat.\r\n\r\nShe was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and loved serving her church in the Primary, Young Women and Relief Society organizations, as well as a Visiting Teacher, a temple worker, and many other callings. She also served an 18-month fulltime mission with Don in Auckland, New Zealand. Upon returning, they resumed missionary service, weekly service in the temple, and she as a Branch Relief Society President at Aspen Ridge West Rehab Center.\r\n\r\nJean is survived by her children, Larry (Debbie); Sheree (Fritz) Fabian; Paul (Stacy); Jeanine (Randy) Larson; James; Karen (Scott) Bitters; daughter-in-law, Lee Anne; 24 grandchildren; and 26 great-grandchildren. Preceded in death by her husband; parents; brothers, Robert and John Wood; her son, Kerry; grandson, Tyler Snarr; and great-granddaughter, Ivy Larson.\r\nThe Snarr Family would like to thank the caring staff at Pacifica Senior Living in Millcreek and Canyon Home Care & Hospice for their loving kindness, tender care and support they provided our mother in these last few years (Pacifica) and weeks (Canyon). \r\n\r\nFuneral Services will be held May 15 2021, at 11:00 a.m. at the Germania Ward located at 464 W.
