Eliza Roxcy Snow (1804-1887) was one of the most important and influential first-generation members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She served as the second President of the Relief Society from the time of its reestablishment in 1866 to her death. She was a plural wife to both Joseph Smith and Brigham Young, and the older sister of Lorenzo Snow.
Snow's most enduring legacy is as a poet; she is frequently referred to as "Zion's Poetess." Of the hundreds of poems she wrote over the course of her life, the single most loved is the hymn, O My Father, which was the first open promulgation of the doctrine of a Mother in Heaven within Mormonism.
