Early Life: Ann was born September 26, 1936, in Eureka, Utah, to Gilbert Edmond Snell and Ellen “Helen” Davies Snell. She grew up in Eureka and attended Eureka schools, where she met her future husband, David. She graduated from Tintic High School. As a child, Ann taught herself to play the piano. Her motto was, “You can do anything you set your mind to if you try hard enough.” Ann was the fourth generation in a family of Utah miners, but she always made sure her family knew they were her silver and gold.
Life's Work/Service/Interests: On June 7, 1957, Ann married David Garbett in Eureka. Their marriage was later solemnized in the Manti Utah LDS Temple. Ann was a lifelong member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and served in many callings, including the stake Primary presidency. She loved children and some of her happiest times were spent teaching Primary and caring for children in the nursery. She attended Brigham Young University in Provo, after which she taught school in a one-room schoolhouse in Callao, Utah, for two years. Many hours in her home were spent with her family singing around the piano while David played guitar. Also, creativity and a love for sewing led Ann to spend much of her life sewing quilts with many of her cherished friends. She enjoyed helping with humanitarian projects in her LDS ward, and she had a special talent for turning piles of “scraps” into beautiful quilts that have been sent to needy people around the world to make them feel warm and loved. After retiring as a secretary at Dugway Proving Ground, she opened a quilt shop with two of her dear friends. She had just completed her final quilt a few hours before suffering the stroke that hospitalized her on October 8, 2015. Ann Louise Snell Garbett passed away October 15, 2015, in Provo, Utah. She was 79.
