Obituary: Rose Ann Snell Peterson

Peterson <! >

1935 ~ 2003

Rose Ann Snell Peterson passed away on Wednesday, September 24, 2003 at her home in Bountiful following a four-year battle with cancer. Her faith in the Gospel of Jesus Christ sustained her during her life and the suffering of this final challenge, as did the kind service of family, friends and her "angel" sisters in the Relief Society.

She was born June 15, 1935 in Salt Lake City to Phillip Arthur and Vera Langford Snell, was raised in Bountiful, attended Davis County Schools and graduated from the University of Utah. She taught home economics for two years in Davis County and two years in Alexandria, VA. Rose Ann was committed above all else to her family and serving their needs. Her circle of concern extended to her friends and neighbors. She also reverenced her forebearers. She left a lasting impression as a teacher in church assignments and as an expression of her love for the arts. Her watercolors and other works fill her home and hang in many places throughout the world. She was a charter member and first president of the Utah Watercolor Society and was a docent at the LDS Church Museum of History and Art for 17 years. She also expressed her creativity as a designer of flower gardens on Temple Square in recent years.

Rose Ann leaves the indelible impression of her love on Bennett, her husband of 46 years; daughter Rose Marie Murray (John) and children Adam, Bethany and Peter of Bountiful; son Alan (Nancy) and children Brittney Riddle, Julie Riddle, Colton Riddle, Maclean and Henry of Centerville; son Bruce (Cynthia) and children Aticus, Anna and Amadeus of Salt Lake City; daughter Jennifer of Bountiful; brother Phil (Janice) of Salt Lake City; and sister LaRae Pyper (Ross) of Bountiful.

Funeral services will be held on Monday, September 29, 2003, at 11 a.m. at the LDS Mueller Park Stake Center, 1818 East Mueller Park Road (1800 South), Bountiful. Friends may call at Russon Brothers Mortuary, 295 North Main, Bountiful, Sunday, September 28, from 6 to 8 p. m., and at the Stake Center from 9:30 to 10:45 a.m. on September 29.
