Judith Schneiter

Judith Schneiter passed away peacefully, surrounded by family, on January 25, 2021 at the age of 80, as a result of complications after a severe fall.

Judith was born in Salt Lake City, UT September 9, 1940. She enjoyed a beautiful childhood being raised in Hurricane and St George by her loving parents, Katherine Walker Miles and Andrew Karl Larson. She graduated from Dixie High School in 1958.

She went on to earn an associate degree from Dixie College and bachelor’s degree from Southern Utah University in education. Judith taught elementary school for thirty years beginning her career at Washington Elementary and retiring from Sunset Elementary in 2000. She loved teaching 2nd grade.

Judith was married to her devoted husband Gene for 50 years. Together they raised a family and lived a sweet life. They both took great pleasure in traveling to many destinations where Gene enjoyed golfing and Judith enjoyed shopping.

Judith was blessed with many “besties” from her childhood who were lifelong friends with whom she shares decades of great memories. She recognized the rare treasure this was in her life and loved those enduring friendships.

She is survived by her children Jeff (Joan) Schneiter, Barbara (Ken) Holt, Greg Schneiter, Lynette (Eric) Schloer, and Terry Schneiter, along with 12 beautiful grandchildren and many beloved great grandchildren.

  1. I recall many telephone calls with Judith, when she was in Dixie and in Lehi. She lived a good live, and we had a good time on our calls. Also, we lived, when in Murray, a short distance from Lynette’s family. Rest in Peace, Judith. We love you.

  2. Dear Schneiter family,
    We are so sorry for the loss of your dear mother (and your sweet father previously). Your parents were a great blessing to the community, the church and everyone they met. We are forever grateful for their kindness, generosity, examples, and the special way they influenced our lives personally with their love and understanding and interest.

    Blessings to you all at this sacred time.

    With love,

    Steve and Toni Caplin

  3. To Mrs. Schneiter Family.

    Your dear mother and my FAVORITE 2nd grade teacher has been on my mind for sometime now. I LOVE Mrs. Schneiter. She was my teacher at Washington Elementary and was STRICT!!! Don’t get me wrong, I loved and needed her discipline. She tight me up in my chair with my jump rope because I kept getting out of my seat. I loved to talk out of turn so she put tape over my mouth. She had the cutest ceramic frog tape dispenser on her desk which I still can remember. She loved art and taught us many neat designs and art projects. She introduced me to daily journal writing by having her students practice words and penmanship daily by putting our thoughts down in our own notebook. I still have mine!!! And I’m 57 years old. I remember her getting a bus which was rare back in those days to take us down to Bloomington to see her home, have lunch and hike to some petroglyphs in that area. We saw pictures of her family; see explained they were like the popular Brady Bunch television series during that time. Oh, Mrs. Schneiter made a huge impact on my life.

    Through the years, I wondered about her. I was at Red Hills golf course a year or so ago and noticed a sign with Gene Schneiter’s name on it. I immediately went back inside to ask because I knew he was Mrs. Schneiter’s husband, but they didn’t know where she or he was at the time.

    It was with a sad heart when I opened the newspaper yesterday and saw my BELOVED teacher. I want you to know if it wasn’t for covid, I would be there to honor your dear mother. I will always treasure her and the lessons she taught me.

    Take Care dear family.

  4. Dear family I want you to know that I loved your mom very much She was such a sweet friend to me. Always thinking of what she could do to help me out at Sunset School She would always pick out students in her class that didn’t have a lot and make sure that they had a nice Christmas. Anything from shoes to bicycles. I learned a lot from her. So happy that I was a teacher with her at Sunset school

  5. We express our deepest sympathy and feel bad we can’t be there with you. Please know you are in our thoughts and prayers always.

  6. Dear Family,
    I loved teaching with Judith at Washington Elementary. She was my mentor and taught a lot. I loved going to UEA with her and Ivone Miller. I especially LOVED the shopping trips we took to Salt Lake and Las Vegas . She taught me how to shop and if you really want something you deserve it! She was always so much fun and full of laughter. I loved the dinners we had at her place in St. George with other teachers. The phone calls to keep in touch, if I wasn’t calling Ivone would call and we would let each other know how Judith was doing. I cherish all my memories with Judith and will miss her GREATLY!

  7. l learned to love Judith when She asked to get medication for her husband years ago. I went into their house in St. George and found the medication and took it to the ER where Judith and Gene waited for me. I was so sorry to hear that she passed.

  8. I fondly remember many enjoyable times Judith and I spent together through out our many years as good friends.

  9. How much I loved Judith.
    Judith was older than I was, and so I didn’t know her growing up, I only knew of her as her parents (whom I loved) lived in our ward.
    When Judith moved back to St. George to go to college, that is when I met her. We studied together…and I loved her and her cute personality. I can still remember going to her parents Karl and Katherine Larson’s home with her. Katherine greeted us with “ Come in, come in our wonderful president is speaking” as it was the State of the Union address.
    I remember hearing about her darling girls…Then she met Gene, and what a great union that was as she added three wonderful sons .
    I loved our visits when I served as her Visiting Teacher.
    I was out of town when I read her obituary and so sad I couldn’t attend, but
    so glad she is out of her suffering and with Gene.
    Love to all the family

    Ps… My husband Tom Shakespeare was her next door neighbor when she grew up.
