Mitchell Ivy Snow

Mitchell Ivy Snow, 78, passed away peacefully Tuesday, April 18, 2023 at Harborview Health Systems, Jesup under the care of Hospice of South Georgia.

A native and lifelong resident of Wayne County, he was born on January 21, 1945 to the late Ivy Otto and Wilma Morris Snow.  He loved the outdoors and being in nature whether he was fishing, riding in the woods or just taking a leisurely walk. He was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints for many years and also believed strongly in passing the things he had learned to younger generations. He acted as a mentor to many young men over the years, pouring the knowledge he had gained into their lives. He also loved raising animals including, chickens, goats and guineas and most of all he enjoyed playing Bingo any time he had the chance. Later in life, when he moved to Harborview Health Systems in Pierce County, he was a very active resident. He was past president of the resident’s council, past Valentine’s king and had also served as the resident activities director.    

In addition to his parents, his brother, Roy Snow, preceded him in death.

Survivors include his sister-in-love, Cathy Snow Miller and husband, Rich, Jesup; her daughters, Nicole Jones and husband, Andrew and Megan Price and husband, Michael and their children, Jonathan, Mallory and Emma Jones, Landon Dotson and Eva Olmedo and cousins including his favorite, Mary Jane Smith, Wayne Townsend, Marolyn Cowart, Carolyn Carter, Tanya Poppell, Walter Jones, Al Jones, Don Kicklighter, Donna Bullman, David Jones and Tommy Smith; a longtime caring friend, Joe Anthony and a host of extended family members.
