Karen B. Chamberlain

June 30, 1951 — December 24, 2023

North Salt Lake, UT

Our loving Mother and Grandmother Karen B. Chamberlain passed away on the morning of December 24, 2023, at the age of 72. She was found by her youngest child Minda Taylor, who describes her as resembling someone who laid down peacefully to take a nap, despite her odd location on the floor. This is a testament to her humorous personality, and at times quirky behavior.

She passed away in her home in the city of North Salt Lake, Utah where she spent most of her adult and mothering life. The last years of Karen's life were spent surrounded by her loving family. Karen was born to Avard W. Booth and Carol G. Porter in 1951 in Salt Lake City. She graduated from East High School in 1969 and later attended Utah State University and Stevens Henager College. At the age of 22 she married Dennis Chamberlain on March 1, 1973.  They had 3 children, Casey, Tiffany, and Minda. Dennis and Karen later separated and divorced in early 1985.

Karen was a devout member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints where she served others selflessly, always being one of the first to volunteer for anything the ward may need. She loved to go to church every Sunday and would visit the Temple whenever she could.  Karen had many callings throughout her life and was currently serving as the Relief Society Secretary and a member of the ward Choir at the time of her passing.

She is survived by her younger brother Chadwick Booth (Ria), her three children; Casey (April) Chamberlain, Tiffany (Patrick) Welch, and Minda Taylor (Daniel Messersmith). As well as her grandchildren; Nathan, Mason, Ashton, Kaytlin, Olivia, Tanner, Kylee, and Kendra. She was also expecting her first Great-Grandchild this spring. As well as an enormous collection of people she considers family. Karen’s humor, animated story telling, and memory will live on through all those that knew and loved her.

She loved to tell the story of her childhood home in Cotton Wood and the playhouse her father built for her in their front yard. She would tell the story with great animation of her arms and long pauses filled with thought. She loved the fact that her father had hooked up water and other various features to her playhouse, adding to the realism to which she adored. She also describes the huge pine tree across from where she would play and how she remembers the upkeep her father did for the tree. Years ago, my grandma dragged me and my little sister to her old house, which is no longer in the family, and ducked under caution tape, just to peer into her old playhouse. The day she passed she was to sing in the church choir, which is something that she loved to do. Though she never made it out of her room that morning. We can all take comfort in knowing she spent her last hours getting ready for a day full of what she loved in anticipation of the coming holiday. Karen is reuniting with her mother, father, and all of those whom she loved that have passed before her. Her presence is already so deeply missed. However, her guidance and words of wisdom will remain in the hearts and minds of all that were close to her.

A viewing will be held Thursday, January 4th, 2024, from 6 to 8 p.m. at Russon Mortuary, 295 North Main Street, Bountiful, Utah. The Funeral will be held on Friday, January 5th, 2024, at 11 a.m., with a viewing prior from 9:45-10:45 at the Orchard 13th ward located at 261 East Center Street, North Salt Lake, Utah 84054. Burial will take place at Bountiful City Cemetery, 2224 South 200 West, Bountiful, Utah 84010 following the services.

 

 

Steven Wayne Snyder 

1951-2023

Redmond, OR- Steven Wayne Snyder (Steve) passed away at home in Redmond, Oregon on November 14, 2023. Steve was born in Salt Lake City, Utah, on July 3, 1951, to Hugh A. and Gladys Reid Snyder.

Steve attended the University of Utah but left to pursue a music career. He was also a professional musician (guitar and vocals) and played in bands for several years. Two of his bands were Louie Drambuie and 911 Emergency in Salt Lake City.

He relocated to Portland, Oregon, and performed with a country/western band, playing rhythm guitar, until he got "tired of the same 4 chords". He discontinued his music career after suffering significant hearing loss. Later Steve pursued a career as a retirement plan administrator, working for various firms right up until his death.

Steve married Patricia Mavor on 31 August 1986, in Salt Lake City, and later divorced. He married Elizabeth St. John on 31 July 1993, and later divorced.

An optimist by nature, Steve married Denese Lovaas on 20 June 1999. Steve became a husband, stepfather and step-grandfather all on that same day. Steve and Denese made their home in Bend and then Redmond, Oregon.

Steve had four stepsons, Denese's sons by a previous marriage: Tony (Thomas Anthony) Starr, Tim (Timothy Adam) Starr, Nick (Nicholas Arnold) Starr and Rick (Ricky Dean) Starr. As the saying goes, "the third time's the charm", as Steve and Denese had 25 years together loving life and each other.

Steve had the ability to make lifelong friends from grade school on and maintained those friendships throughout his life. After relocating to Oregon, Steve became an expert at white-water rafting, and ran the Deschutes River every summer.

Steve was preceded in death by his parents, a sister, Sharon Snyder Kamerath, a brother, Clyde Reid Snyder, and stepson, Tony.

Steve is survived by his widow, Denese Lovass Snyder and stepsons, Tim, Nick and Ricky Starr, a sister, Bobby (Barbara) Snyder Colton, and brothers Ron (Ronald) and Ken (Kenneth) Snyder. He is also survived by several grandchildren: Savannah Starr Sutfin, Jonah Starr, Micah Starr, Jonathen Starr, Emily Starr, Brenden Starr, Jaxon Starr, and Mandy Starr. He is also survived by one great-grandchild, Malaki Joseph Sutfin.

A memorial service with friends and family will be held at the family home on November 29th at 1 pm. Steve has chosen cremation, so there will be no graveside service.

William Reed Larson obituary, 1951-2023, Salt Lake City, UT

William Reed Larson
1951 - 2023

Salt Lake City, UT-Bill Larson or "Dr. Bill" was a force of life. He passed away on June 14, 2023, after many years of cancer, lung disease and finally Covid. Bill was born January 31, 1951, firstborn of Reed Parkinson Larson and Lennox Adamson. He was always positive and not much could stop him. He had a sharp mind, never-ending energy, and an adventurous and generous spirit. After serving in the Japan Central mission, he met the love of his life, Robin Ririe at the University of Utah (U of U). After their temple sealing, they set out on their first adventure to Seattle, Washington for Dental training. They were a good team for 50 years.

Bill was a natural athlete, excelling in golf (hole in one at the Highland High golf tryouts), tennis, skiing, motor sports and water skiing with flawless starts and stops on the dock. Bill was also a born leader, serving at East High, the U of U, and in callings for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints throughout his entire life. Bill had a firm belief in the Gospel and was a disciple of Jesus Christ, constantly ministering to those in need. He was especially dedicated to developing the youth. He served in Scouting for over 30 years, receiving the highest recognition a local council can bestow upon leaders (Silver Beaver) for shepherding dozens of young men to their Eagle rank and attending multiple national Jamborees. He was a distinguished mentor to his children's friends, grandchildren, and nieces and nephews; always providing fun and work for all! He planned the first Parley's Stake Trek in 1997, complete with a little hardship for the youth. Bill served on several boards for non-profit organizations and public-interest groups, including The Rotary Club of Salt Lake City, The Hope Alliance, and the U of U School of Music. He enjoyed his associations with his friends in Dinner Set, Great Basin Study Club, and the Newstate Duck Club.

Bill was one of a kind with candy in his pockets and always with a bag or a box with articles, jokes, and survival supplies. He never wanted to be caught waiting in a line without something to read.

Bill also served the Salt Lake City community as a dentist for over 40 years and was renowned for his integrity and dedication to his trade. He was a compassionate professional, regularly treating those in need while discreetly refusing compensation. He taught at the University of Utah Dental school for 10 years-beginning with the first incoming class-and loved passing on his knowledge of Dentistry and his motto, "the patient is first." He was always interested in the students' personal lives and development, offering genuine guidance and counsel beyond the classroom.

His retirement found him at his computer, making and losing money in equal measure. In 2012, he developed a passion for the sky and completed airplane pilot training with his loyal co-pilot (Cooper the dog, complete with headphones) and navigator, Robin (who may or may not have been biting her nails during some of their expeditions). Bill loved being airborne as much as he loved being on the lake. Family time almost always involved adventures on the water; troubleshooting houseboat repairs at Lake Powell or directing cabin improvements at Bear lake.

Through silver skies and over silver waters, Bill was always gliding.

Bill and Robin are the parents of 6 amazing children and their amazing spouses: Russell (Lisa), Scott (Gina), Katharine Lee (Scott), Graham (Carly), Ellen Bush (Gabe), Preston (Natalie) and 17 grandchildren with 2 more on the way. Siblings Brent Larson (Mary) and Eric Larson (Lori). Preceded in death by his sister Ann DeMill and his parents.

A funeral will be held at 11 a.m. on Friday, June 23 at Parley's 3rd Ward, 2615 E Stringham Ave. Family and friends are welcome Thursday, June 22nd, 6-8 p.m. and on Friday, 9:30 -10:30 before the funeral. You may watch the service online through Zoom using the following Link:
