1938 ~ 2013
Sharon Snyder Kamerath passed away peacefully at home from the effects of systemic sclerosis, on the Ides of March, Friday, March 15, 2013.
She was born November 20, 1938, in Salt Lake City to Hugh A. and Gladys Reid Snyder. She married David E. Kamerath on August 21, 1964, in the Salt Lake Temple. They are the parents of ten children.
She is survived by her mother, husband, and children Brian, Jon (Eileen), Heidi Gordon (Bruce), Susan Wismer (David), Scott (Dawn), Nate (Katie), Marcia Heer (Doug), Jenny Eatchel (Justin), Joseph (Tami), and Sarah Plummer (Sam); her siblings Clyde, Bobby Colton, Ron, Steve, Ken; 36 grandchildren plus one on the way, and a great-granddaughter due in June, plus many dear friends.
Preceded in death by beloved granddaughter Lucy.
Shar Dearie loved a good joke. She could recite "The Jabberwocky" on request, and had a funny Smothers Brothers song for any occasion. She laughed with us at her own embarrassing moments, earning her the self-adopted nickname Grace.
Having raised ten children, she could make a casserole or an amazing pot of soup from nothing (but we could never ask for anything twice), and she could stretch a dollar around the block. She was always pitching in to help those in need; she would cook you dinner, wash your dishes, and leave you smiling. She taught us to work, and that charity is its own reward. Babies loved her, as did her plants.
Shar is a faithful, compassionate and exceptionally humble disciple of Jesus Christ. She loved teaching and serving in the Relief Society, and she was grateful for the fellowship of her sisters in the gospel. To be her friend was a true gift.
Family and friends may visit on Monday, March 18, 2013, from 6 until 8 p.m., and on Tuesday, March 19 from 9:45 to 10:45 a.m., with funeral services 11 a.m. on Tuesday. All services will be held at the 27th Ward chapel on 4th Avenue and "P" Street. Shar requested that, in lieu of flowers, please donate to the LDS Church Education Fund or Primary Children's Medical Center.
Beware the Ides. I told you I was sick.
