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.

Faculty & Staff, 1960s up through May, 1968. Mrs. Jane Storrs. According to her students, she was a wonderful Third Grade teacher at the BYU Elementary school. HER OBITUARY: Jane Adeline Grant Storrs died February 12, 2003. Born February 24, 1907, in Duchesne, Utah to John Williams Grant and Julia Bromley Grant. She was the last surviving child of eight children. She married Wilford L. Storrs in the Salt Lake Temple but later divorced. She taught elementary school for most of her life until she earned her Masters Degree and began teaching in the Education Department at Brigham Young University, where she also supervised student teachers. Working at BYU was one of the happiest times in her life. As an elementary school teacher, she had a warm and loving yet firm way of teaching that endeared her to both children and their parents. After retirement, she became a volunteer at Utah Valley Medical Center as the message lady. She raised her children alone when there was little support for single mothers. Jane was patient to a fault, with a sweet and gentle disposition: a true lady who carried herself with dignity to the end of her life. A special thanks to Fleurette (Sue) Peterson, who for many years patiently cared for Jane. Mother was truly blessed to have Sue as her care giver. She is survived by two daughters: Elaine Sperry and Lorna Christiansen; ten grandchildren, and 19 great-grandchildren. Preceded in death by her parents, siblings, a son, and a great granddaughter. Funeral services were held Tuesday, February 18, 2003 in American Fork. Interment, American Fork Cemetery. [Deseret News, Sunday, February 16, 2003.]
