LaRae Schneider Monson, 88, passed away in Murray, Utah on October 25, 2014 of congestive heart failure.

She was born in Inglewood, California on April 7, 1926 to Orville Dallas Schneider and Rosabelle Larsen Schneider.

LaRae had a great love for music, and she took up the accordion at age eight. She later performed for civic groups around town.

Throughout her life, she was known for her penmanship and ability to spell nearly anything.

Raised close to the ocean, LaRae became an excellent and graceful swimmer, later teaching her children and grandchildren to swim. She enjoyed sports, hiking, and serving in the community.

LaRae and Robert L. Monson were married on September 19, 1945 in Los Angeles, California. LaRae was sealed to her eternal companion, Robert Lee Monson, in the Logan Utah Temple on November 14, 1945.

She was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints all her life, serving in many capacities in Primary, Relief Society, and Seminary.

She was a missionary and a temple patron, and fourteen of her descendants have served full-time missions for the Church.

She was a beloved and devoted mother and grandmother, who once outlasted all of the grandchildren at a family reunion in Disneyland. They were relieved when her repeated suggestions of "just one more ride" had to end when the park closed.

She was a superb culinary artist who made excellent cakes, pies, and candies. She could make a typewriter sing at over 100 words per minute.

She was active in the Boy Scouts of America, making sure that all three of her sons became Eagle Scouts.

Her kindness and counsel will be sorely missed by family and friends, who nevertheless take comfort in the reality of the Resurrection.

LaRae was preceded in death by her parents and two younger brothers, Max and Lyle. She is survived by her husband, Robert; her children, Robert Brent (Melissa), Dallas Chris (Barbara), Carol Terry, Jan Lewis (Marsha), and Karen Rae Zmoos (Michael); twenty-four grandchildren; and thirty-three great-grandchildren.

A viewing will be held on Thursday, October 30, 2014 from 3:00-6:00 p.m. at Jenkins-Soffe South Valley Mortuary, 1007 West South Jordan Parkway (10600 South), South Jordan. An additional viewing from 8:30-9:30 a.m. will precede the funeral on Saturday, November 1, 2014. Funeral services will commence at 10:00 a.m. in the mortuary, with interment to follow in the Hyrum City Cemetery.
