Our dearest wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother Jerryldine Snarr (Stansbury Park, Utah) was called home to her Heavenly Father on Thursday, December 16, 2021 surrounded by her loving husband and children.
Jerri was born to Hallace and LaVerne Harker on October 30, 1946 in Idaho Falls, Idaho. She was the youngest of the five children. Her early life was spent on the farm in Shelly, Idaho where she learned the value of hard work. She spent her days thinning beets, raising animals, and driving farm equipment when she could barely see over the steering wheel.
In her teen years, she attended Shelly High School where she was active in numerous clubs. She served in leadership roles including editor of the school paper, FFA Darling, Pep Band Vice President, and won Shelly’s Miss Russet beauty pageant.
Jerri attended Ricks College in Rexburg, Idaho where she excelled at school. She was student body First Vice President, recognized in Who’s Who in American Junior Colleges, and nominated for Woman of the Year at Rick’s College.
After finishing school, she met her eternal sweetheart and the love of her life Kent Dee Snarr at a church activity. They were married in the Idaho Falls Temple on June 28, 1968. The family lived in Springville, Utah; Shelly, Idaho; Taylorsville, Utah; Caldwell, Idaho; Orem, Utah; South Jordan, Utah, respectively. Dee and Jerri eventually settled in Stansbury Park, Utah. Together they raised four children.
She encouraged and motivated her children to enjoy music, sports, and education, always providing opportunities to ensure their success. In addition to her four biological children, she welcomed four foster daughters into her home.
Jerri had many talents to share with everyone around her. She was a gifted gardener whose beautiful yard was the site of many celebrations for family and friends. For years, Jerri generously brought a bouquet from her garden to church, which was subsequently gifted to someone who could benefit. She was an accomplished artist who enjoyed oil painting landscapes of the Teton Mountains and portraits of her family. During her peak artistic years, her art hung in banks, businesses, and galleries around Caldwell, Idaho. She was a talented seamstress, sewing beautiful wedding dresses and prom dresses for her daughters.
Jerri had diverse work experience in the health care, food manufacturing, and computer
industries. She increased in responsibility with each position. She finally found her passion selling real-estate as an agent and broker. Many of the people she worked with became friends for life.
Jerri had a strong testimony of Christ and found joy in serving others. With her loving husband at her side, she served a church service mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints assisting the homeless population in Salt Lake City.
Jerri accomplished much in her career endeavors and personal life, but her most prized possession was always her family. Her beloved husband Dee was the light of her life, and she loved him and her posterity until the end. To our mother, grandmother, wife, and friend, we will] love you forever, until we meet again.
Jerri is survived by her husband Kent Dee Snarr (Stansbury, Park); her children Deede Vickers (Marc), William Snarr (Kelly), Gina Radford (Trevor), Becky Knudsen (Travis); 21 grandchildren and four great grandchildren; a sister Harriet Madden (Mike), and a sister-in-law Koelyn Blake (Steve). She was preceded in death by her parents, two sisters (Marie Thompson, Sylvia Thompson), her brother (Marlo Harker), and her great-grandchild Silas Vickers.
Funeral services will be held Wednesday December 22, 2021 at the Stansbury Park Utah South Stake building, 240 Interlochen Ln. Stansbury Park, Utah. Viewing will be one hour prior to the service at 10:00 AM with services beginning at 11:00.
