Sharon Jean Turner Hall (Snyder)

| July 11, 2024 12:00 AM

Sharon Jean Turner Hall (Snyder) passed away with family by her side on June 22, 2024, from a battle with metastasized colon cancer. Sharon was a loving, funny and beautiful person. She was there for her parents and siblings as they passed and her family was there for her.

Sharon was born to Wayne Harold Snyder and Melva Pearl Snyder. She was the eighth of 14 children. She was raised on a dairy in Ronan where she was taught hard work and what family meant. 

She went to Ronan High School and graduated in 1964. She moved to Susanville, Calif., where she met her first husband, Darrel Turner, and had two children, Wendelynn and Lynelle. She worked hard on a farm raising everything but horses. 

Many a times the neighbors called us the Turner Funny Farm due to the antics that would happen. In 1983 Sharon moved back to Ronan, where she felt most at home, with her children. She worked hard raising two kids and working full time. She would always have a smile on her face and a joke to tell. 

Mom met a handsome man during one of the Pioneer Days in 1984 and was chased across the park and over the tables at the Valley Club trying to stay out of “Jail.” Who would have thought that man would be the love of her life? 

David Hall was the man she danced with on clouds. He became my dad and my mom’s husband on July 4, 1998, in front of the mountains she called home.

Mom and Dave lived a short time in Elko, Nev., during the mining boom but the mountains kept calling them home. Mom worked for many years at Jore’s, which later became Rocky Mountain Twist.

When she retired, she became a home body. She enjoyed seeing her grandchildren and great-grandchildren at any opportunity. 

She is survived by her daughters, Wendelynn Zachariasen and Lynelle Crecentini; grandchildren Leanne Wood (Wesley), Brittiny Gutierrez (Cameron), Jessica Froning (Derek), Gabriel Riley, Eric Warner (Barbara), Stormy Hoover (Mike), Liam O’Neil and Kristi Davidson;  great-grandchildren Harley and Jeremiah Wood, Beau Guterrez, Hayley Froning, Braedyn, Kaylin, Johnathan and Adalynn Warner; brothers Ron, Vernon, Robert and Merlyn Snyder and sister Karene Manus; and many nieces and nephews. 

She is preceded by David Hall; her parents Wayne and Melva Snyder; brothers Eldon, Norman, Leonard and Duane; sisters Faye, Rosie, Mardene and Mardell; along with many aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews. 

Celebration of life will be held on July 13 at 3 p.m. at the Ronan Community Center. Taco bar will be provided. Anyone attending is asked to bring a salad or dessert.
