- About Us
Ada Bernice Newbold Snow was born February 25, 1922 to George L. and Lyda Robinson Newbold in Devil’s Slide, Utah. She attended school in Devil’s Slide and Morgan, Utah.
After high school Bernice lived in the Beehive House in Salt Lake City while attending LDS Business College. Bernice linked ammo belts at Hill Air Force Base during WW II. She had many vocations during her working life.
She married Scott Griggs Snow May 28, 1947 in the Salt Lake City Temple. Four children were born to their marriage Mark (Gail) Snow, Marsha (John) Parry, Craig (Carol) Snow, and Kevin Snow. Mom was blessed to be able to stay in the family home, where she lived for 67 years, until the time of her death.
Bernice was a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints where she served in numerous callings. She was a long time member of the Daughters of the Utah Pioneers. She was Camp Captain many times, the last time at age 90. She was very proud of her pioneer heritage and it was important to her to remember those who had passed before her. Every year she visited gravesites in Morgan and Upton, Utah. She made special effort to see that the family graves in the small Upton Cemetery were maintained. Bernice spent 50 years working on family genealogy. This was long before computer searches which meant many hours talking with family, looking through records on microfiche, and searching through books.
Bernice loved to sew and all of the family benefited from her talent. We looked forward to visiting her and always peeked inside her cookie jar to see which of our favorite cookies would be inside. Mom loved her family and we were so blessed to have her with us for so many years. We will miss her dearly and think of her daily.
Bernice is survived by her four children, 15 grandchildren, 25 great-grandchildren and two great-great-grandchildren. Also survived by her sister, LaVon Frances; and brother, Dale (Barbara) Newbold. Preceded in death by her husband, Scott; grandson, Derek Snow; and great-grandson, Chase Butterfield.
The family would like to thank the owners and employees at Millie’s Burgers in Sugarhouse for their special treatment of our mom. She loved her weekly visits. We would also like to thank Sydra Clark who not only kept Mom’s house clean, but became a good friend to her.
