  • Elnor Lynn Schroader, beloved daughter, wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, passed away peacefully on 12/31/2020. Her last moments were spent in the company of the loving family to which she had dedicated her life.

    Born on April 30, 1933 in Preston, Idaho. Lynn was raised in a whip-smart family with four brothers. After graduating from BYU, she married Frederic Herbert Schroader in the Salt Lake Temple. Over the next several decades, they raised 10 children in a home of love, support and hope.

    Continuing her life-long pattern of service, Lynn furthered her education to become a special education teacher. She spent the next 10 years teaching full-time at Kaysville Jr. and Farmington Jr. High Schools where she was widely recognized for her love and dedication to her students.

    With her teaching career completed, Fred and Lynn served an 18-month mission in the Cincinnati Ohio area for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Upon their return they completed additional local missions at Temple Square and at the Employment Center. Throughout her life Lynn served in various church callings in the Sunday School, Relief Society, Primary and Scouting organizations. Faith was extremely important to Lynn for many reasons, but mostly for the promise of Eternal Family.

    Lynn is survived by her children’s families. Judy and Greg Kiefer, John, Richard (deceased) and Leslie, Sandi and Dave Herrin, Bill and Bonnie, Mike, Paul and Ann Marie, Russ and Keiko, Robert and Angie, Jake and Dani, 35 grandchildren and 24 great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her dear husband Fred of 61 years, her son Richard, grandson Ben and granddaughter Maquell, her parents Harold Benjamin and Jennie S. Bearnson Allen, and brothers Harold, Curt, Keith and Robert Allen.

    As her family lays her to rest, we celebrate her exemplary life and feel privileged beyond measure to have shared with her the struggles, triumphs and all of the little, precious moments made available to us as a family.

    A viewing will be held at Larkin Sunset Gardens in Sandy, Utah on January 4th from 12:00 – 1:45 p.m. Masks and social distancing will be required.

    We encourage all mourners and well-wishers to keep her in your thoughts and prayers as we lay her to rest.

    The family extends heartfelt gratitude to the remarkable caregivers at Petersen Farms Assisted Living for their compassionate and loving care of our mother.


    Dear Schroader Family - the Allen's of Florida are all wishing you strength at this time. While Harold & Carol were courting, 18-year-old Lynn accompanied them as a "chaperone" on a trip to the Grand Canyon and the southern UT parks. And she had heartfelt comments at Harold's funeral in 2008 about how proud she felt when her "big brother" came home in uniform the first time in 1945. I enjoyed talking with her at length in 2019 at Curt's funeral. Just a wonderful soul! Monty Allen (along with her sister-in-law, Carol Allen)

    Please accept our condolences of your mother’s passing. She was so dear to us and always made time to share a laugh or two. Although we lived a distance away, she always made us feel welcome and loved in her presence. Our Aunt Lynn was a very special lady and loved by so many yet she had this talent of making you feel special and was always a great listener. She will be sorely missed, however, she will always resonate in our hearts forever. With much love to all of you, Anne & Jackie
