Ida Mae Swenson
Marysvale, Utah

The center of our family, Ida Mae Lay Snow Swenson, 92, passed away December 28, 2021 at her son’s home in Richfield. She was born July 5, 1929 in Circleville to Lynn and Isabell Fox Lay.

She married K LeMoyne Snow on June 3, 1948 in the Manti Temple. He preceded her in death on June 2, 1968.  She married Harold “Harry” Valdemar Swenson on December 26, 1969 in Las Vegas. He preceded her in death on February 11, 1999.

Ida Mae was a dedicated wife, mother, and grandmother over 73 years. She was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, serving in a variety of capacities, including 8½ years as Relief Society president and several years as a counselor. She was very proud to represent Piute County as the Centennial Queen in 1947, and also being named co-valedictorian of her graduating class. She loved quilting, gardening, watching sports, crossword puzzles, dancing, attending the temple, and yard work - especially mowing her lawn, even up until her death. She was legendary for her hand stitched quilts and homemade pies. She was proud of her record-breaking pies that sold at the annual Boy Scout dinners. Her greatest love was her children and grandchildren—they were her greatest pride and joy. She quoted, regarding her children, “I thought I was leading them, but the truth was, I was just following them holding up a lantern”.

She is survived by her children: Ida Shaunice “Shaun” Snow, St. George; Lonnel “Lon” K (Tami) Snow, Jensen; Lynn C (Tani) Snow, Spanish Fork; Lance G (Stacey) Snow, Richfield; Rick Swenson, and Mike Swenson; 10 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren; sister: Betty Geneil Reynolds, Idaho Falls, ID.

Also preceded in death by her parents; brother, Kelvin Lynn Lay; step-children: Harriet Hugo, Charles Swenson and David Swenson.
