Alma and Juan Whiting

Class of 1945. Alma Snow [Female.] Grand Marshals -- Juan and Alma Snow Whiting have been named as Grand Marshals for the Mapleton City 24th of July celebration parade, scheduled for Saturday, July 23, 2005. Alma Snow was born December 18, 1926 [?] in St. George, Utah to Karl Nelson Snow, Sr., and Wanda McGregor. Her father died when she was three and left her mother a widow with one daughter and five sons. The Snow family moved to Provo, where Alma attended school at Brigham Young High School, and then Brigham Young University, where she was involved in the symphony, White Key honorary and many leadership positions. She worked summers at the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. Juan was born March 13, 1922, the third child of Oscar and Mary Whiting. He attended school in Mapleton and Springville before enlisting in the Navy Air Corp in 1934. Three of his best friends were killed during the war. He served on the Air Craft Carrier USS Intrepid as a pilot of the Torpedo Bomber. Alma graduated from BYU as an English major and a music minor and has freely given service in the church and community with her violin. Juan attended the University of Utah on a basketball scholarship and later transferred to BYU where he graduated in education. He taught school in Springville for 23 years and farmed in Mapleton. Service has always been important to the Whitings. Alma has worked in Relief Society, Primary and Young Women in her ward and stake, been involved in political campaigns, DUP Captain and Vice President of the BYU Emeritis Club. Juan coached Little League baseball for 14 years, was scoutmaster and explorer leader for years and served on the Mapleton Planning Commission, in two Bishoprics and on the Mapleton High Council. Both have served missions to Africa for the LDS Church. Juan was first called following the war to serve in South Africa. While he was en route, the engine on the ship went out and he spent a few months in Recife, Brazil, while repairs were made. Later he and Alma served together in the Zimbabwe Mission and then another mission in Capetown, South Africa. Alma and Juan were married September 6, 1949 in the Salt Lake LDS Temple. They are the parents of seven children: David (deceased), Shelie, Mark, Mary, Kaye, Paul and Brent. They have 63 grandchildren and 19 great-grandchildren. Juan's roots come from the very beginning of Mapleton. His ancestors were among the first pioneers on Union Bench later known as Mapleton. [Springville Herald, July 21, 2005.] ~ ~ ~ ~ HER OBITUARY: Alma Snow Whiting, 1926 ~ 2017. Alma Snow Whiting, age 90, passed away peacefully in her hometown of Mapleton, Utah, on May 15, 2017. Born December 18, 1926 in St. George, Utah, she grew up with 5 brothers. Alma was loved dearly and known as the "Princess" of her father Karl Nelson Snow who died when she was just 3; Alma along with her 5 brothers were then raised single-handedly by her widowed mother, Wanda McGregor Snow. His mother raised five sons and one daughter: Tony, Ellsworth, Don [BYH Class of 1938], Shipley [BYH Class of 1939], Alma [BYH Class of 1945], and Karl Jr. [BYH Class of 1949]. The children later started a scholarship fund at BYU in memory of their mother. At age 10, Alma moved with her family to Provo, Utah, where she attended Dixon Junior High, Brigham Young High School graduating in the Class of 1945, and BYU - graduating with a BA in English. At BYU she served as White Key Honorary President, Associated Women's Vice President, and President of Nautilus Social Unit. Alma loved playing the violin in BYU's symphony orchestra. During these busy University years, she waited anxiously for the return of her special missionary, Oscar Juan Whiting, who was serving in South Africa. Alma married Juan Whiting in the Salt Lake Temple on September 6, 1949. From that moment on, her husband, family, and church became her top priority. Juan and Alma worked beside their children on their farm, always teaching and providing a strong gospel foundation. There was always room in her heart for every special grandchild, and at the time of her passing, she was the proud grandma of 63 grandchildren, and 113 great-grandchildren. Service in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day-Saints was a joy to her. She served faithfully in ward and stake callings. However, her greatest love was serving with her husband as missionaries in Cape Town, South Africa, and Harare, Zimbabwe. She used her musical talents to direct music and play the violin to promote the work of the Lord. Our dear mother Alma has always treasured her pioneer heritage. She spent long hours writing and compiling her own personal history, and the histories of her mother and grandmother. Just hours before her passing, she left her computer screen on a genealogical indexing record--having indexed over 69,000 records. Imagine her glorious reunion in heaven! Preceding Alma in death are her father and mother, Karl N. and Wanda M. Snow; 4 brothers, Don, Tony, Ellsworth, and Shipley; husband, Juan; sons, David and Mark; 3 grandchildren, Christopher, Julia, and Lynzy Whiting, and one great grandson, Carder Doman. Surviving is 1 brother, Karl Snow (Donna), Provo; 5 of her 7 children, Shelie Doman (Dee) - serving LDS an mission in Nova Scotia; Judy Richardson (David), Perry; Mary Judd (Robert), St. George; Kaye Romney (Ben), Rexburg; Paul Whiting (Sherri), Springville; Brent Whiting (Laurie), Mapleton. Funeral services will be 11 a.m., Saturday, May 20, 2017 at the White Church, 31 West Maple Street, Mapleton, Utah with a viewing at the church Friday from 6 to 8 pm and Saturday prior to services from 9 to 10:45 am.

Don Snow was deeply devoted to God, family, and country. He was a faithful member of the LDS Church; a loving and caring son, brother, husband, father, and grandfather; and a determined athlete, soldier, veteran, and patriot. Don was softhearted and strong as nails. His father, Karl Nelson Snow, died when he was ten years old. He could never talk about his dear dad without crying. He courageously faced death during World War II at the Normandy Invasion and at the Battle of the Bulge with his buddies of the 2nd Infantry (Indianhead) Division. Don met his sweetheart, Anne Greaves, at BYU, and they were married in the Salt Lake Temple on April 5, 1951. Don was 6'4" and loved basketball. He played at Dixie High, BY High, and BYU. For 27 years, he was a head basketball coach at Milford, North Summit, BY High, and Granger High Schools. He preferred "Coach" over any other title. He bled BYU blue, held BYU football and basketball season tickets since 1951, and was a dedicated and vocal fan. He graduated from Brigham Young High School in 1938. He received a bachelor's degree in Physical Education in 1946 and a master's degree in Physical Education in 1954, both from BYU. Don and his wife Anne served a mission in Greece where he was president of the Piraeus Branch. He was a high priest, Sunday School teacher, ward clerk, home teacher, and Young Men's basketball coach. Don was born and grew up in St. George and dearly loved his many relatives. He was named after his grandfathers, Edward Hunter Snow and Dr. Donald Alpine McGregor. Don was surrounded by his adoring family when he passed away. We are certain his spirit has had a glorious reunion with his father, Karl Nelson Snow; his mother, Wanda McGregor Snow; and his brothers Tony, Shipley, and Ellsworth Snow. Don was a mentor and father figure to many of his players, and particularly to his nephews and nieces whose fathers suffered untimely deaths.

Interment, St. George, Utah. ~ ~ ~ ~ Edward Hunter Snow, son of Apostle Erastus Snow, graduated from Brigham Young Academy in 1884. His biographer, noted Utah Historian Thomas G Alexander, writes that in.... Completing his comprehensive examinations to graduate, he earned 100 percent in General History, Political Science, Physical Geography, and Higher Arithmetic, and 99 percent in Bookkeeping. Edward rated Karl G. Maeser as his most inspiring teacher, and also took classes from Joseph M. Tanner and James E. Talmage. After graduating in 1884, he taught at BYA for the 1884-85 academic year, replacing Benjamin Cluff who had contracted typhoid fever. ~ ~ ~ ~ Edward Hunter Snow: Second Generation Pioneer - By Elder Jeffrey R Holland. One who reads this compelling biography of Southern Utah’s most influential leader in “the second generation” will come away with at least two overarching impressions. First, that turning the little St. George settlement (which began as the heart of the LDS Church’s less-than-successful “Cotton Mission”) into a thriving community that would become the spiritual and civic anchor to the southernmost part of the state required a brand of vision, courage, talent and faith not often recognized by those looking back from the comfort of the 21st century. Second, that without knowing the singular life and truly remarkable contribution of Edward H. Snow, son of the city’s apostolic founding father, one could never recognize the full significance of what has come to be known as “Utah’s Dixie.” Regarding Dixie country, one of Edward’s cousins once wrote: “Of all the God-for-saken [sic] lands than any human beings were ever asked to carve a town out of, Dixie country was it. It was a hole bounded on the north by red sandstone cliffs, on the east and west by hills of black lava rock, and on the south by the muddiest, dirtiest river imaginable . . . The floor of the valley was red sand and alkali over which hot, dusty winds blew. The only plant life was cactus, mesquite, and sage brush. The animal life was rattlesnakes, lizards, gila monsters, and the coyote.” It was into such a harsh and unforgiving land that Elder Erastus Snow led early pioneers in 1861 and it was in that pioneer settlement that his son Edward was born just four years later. Such a setting could have repelled almost anyone, and some of the early settlers did leave. But not the Snows nor a courageous band of other first families. The very ruggedness of the land spoke to their souls and engendered a kind of love and loyalty that is still evident in their posterity nearly a century and a half later. Men like Edward H. Snow, who could have prospered and excelled anywhere he chose to live, chose to live in Dixie. As a result of the grit, talent and tenacity of this second generation of pioneers, St. George slowly “blossomed as the rose.” In that generation Edward H. Snow is by all reckoning the principal leader of those who stayed and soldiered on to bring educational, commercial, cultural and religious maturity to a setting that had seemed so hostile to all such hopes. Born in 1865 in the earliest years of Dixie’s settling, Edward died in 1932 having seen his home city develop in a way that was as remarkable as it was unexpected. Any student of history interested in Utah’s transition from its primitive condition in the mid-19th century to the developing, increasingly dynamic movement of the early-20th century could do no better than read the life of Edward H. Snow. His life not only spanned that period but significantly shaped it for good. Edward’s accomplishments are almost too numerous to mention, certainly too numerous to mention in an introduction. But I invite the reader to think upon so many contributions in so many fields of endeavor, all made when life in Dixie was still new and still challenging. As an educator, Edward taught school, became the superintendent of county schools, then chaired the county school board later on. He helped found both of what are now Dixie State College in St. George and Southern Utah University in Cedar City. In the world of business and commerce, Edward brought in the first telephone service to the area, founded a bank and a savings and loan association, started an ice business, established water companies with their bridges, canals and reclamation projects, and owned agricultural farms, mills and storage facilities. As a public servant he served in the Utah State Senate, chaired the State Tax Commission, and played a key role in modernizing Utah government as it made its transition into fully developed statehood. Most important to Edward and his posterity was his lifelong devotion to and service in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. As the spiritual leader of the community he loved so much, he served as a youth leader, missionary (with interim service as mission president), stake president and temple president. President Heber J. Grant, personal friend and confidant, spoke at Edward’s funeral service held in the Assembly Hall on Temple Square in Salt Lake City. As was fitting and proper, however, Edward’s body was returned for burial in his beloved St. George. One of Dixie’s most distinguished sons would not have been peaceful being laid to rest anywhere else on earth. Jeffrey R. Holland, Salt Lake City, Utah ~ ~ ~ ~ Submitted by grandson Karl N. Snow, Jr. (BYH Class of 1949) 3638 N 100 East, Provo, Utah 84604-6504 - 801-805-6686 - 801-400-4710 - snow.karl@comcast.net @July2013 ~ ~ ~ ~ The Life of Edward Hunter Snow (1865–1932), a leader in second-generation Mormon Utah, closely paralleled the early-twentieth-century development of the West. Born in St. George, Utah, to Julia Spencer and Mormon apostle Erastus Snow, Edward Hunter Snow was instrumental both in the development of southern Utah and in the growth of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints during a period of rapid change. In Edward Hunter Snow, the first biography of the man, noted western and Mormon historian Thomas G. Alexander presents Snow as a servant of family, church, state, and nation. Offering insights into the LDS Church around the turn of the twentieth century, Alexander narrates the events of Snow’s missions to the American South, including encounters with the Ku Klux Klan in the 1880s, and to New York. As president of the St. George Stake and church leader, Snow sought to reshape the LDS Church’s place in Utah—confining its influence to religious and cultural practices and avoiding politics. Although he was involved in numerous causes throughout his life, Snow was especially dedicated to education. A graduate of what is now Brigham Young University, he worked to ensure that the state’s children would have access to quality education. Snow founded what is now Dixie State College and, as a state senator, introduced legislation to establish what is now Southern Utah University. As the nineteenth century gave way to the twentieth, Snow helped St. George grow from an isolated cotton colony to an important stop on the main automobile route from Salt Lake City to Los Angeles. Alexander shows that rugged, southwestern Utah’s flowering into cultural and commercial maturity was due to the foresight and dedication of second-generation pioneers like Edward Hunter Snow.

Gordon was born on March 18, 1916, in Provo, Utah, to William James Snow, Sr., and Hattie Thornton Snow. Gordon's life was defined by his great love of tennis, soaking in the tub, cruising the oceans of the world, BYU athletics. He graduated from Brigham Young High School in 1934. His first and foremost his love for his wife Beth and their six children, 24 grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. It took Gordon four years before his bride-to-be finally agreed that there would be no other man in her life but him. Gordon Snow and Beth Todd were married in the Salt Lake LDS Temple on November 23, 1940. World War II interrupted early married life in 1943 when Gordon joined the Army Air Corp, later becoming a pilot and flying throughout the Pacific regions of the war. After the war Gordon went to work for United Air Lines in San Francisco, but soon yielded to yearnings to return home. With an exuberant entrepreneurial spirit, Gordon bought a Spudnut Shop in Sugarhouse, built Snow's Drive Inn on West Temple and 21st South, entered the Chicken Broaster business and managed the concession stand at the George Q. Morris ball park during the entire period of its existence. Gordon concluded his business career as the manager of ZCMI's central warehouse. Gordon was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints where he served in various capacities to include leadership positions within his High Priest Quorum, but his greatest love was that of the official ward greeter. This reflected his life-long love of people regardless of their rank in life. Gordon is survived by his wife, Beth; children, Grant (Arlene) Snow; Joanne Snow (John) Neumann; Greg (Barbara) Snow; Sherrie Snow (Jim) Jones; Annette Snow (Robert) Sperry; and Connie Snow (Steve) Gleason. He was preceded in death by his parents, his brothers Bill Snow; Thornton (Rosy) Snow; Claude Snow; and his sister Emma Snow; and his grandson Danny Sperry.

The Church donates funds to UN World Health to eradicate measles in Africa, and then sends in senior missionary couples to organize the local wards and branches to mobilize the community, and help with the immunizations. It serves to bring the Church members closer together, and gives them visibility in the community. They served in Swaziland for two months to work with four Church units there. Karl and his wife will return in early October 2013, on a short-term Missionary assignment to Botswana Southeast Africa. @2013
