Carol Cherrington Clark, 90, our sweet mother, grandmother and friend, passed away peacefully on Monday, May 26, 2014, at home in Snowflake. She was a valiant, strong lady in life and still continues that quest. Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m. on Monday, June 2, at the Snowflake Stake Center of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Visitations are planned from 6 to 8 p.m. on Sunday, June 1, at Owens-Livingston Mortuary in Snowflake, and one hour prior to the services at the stake center.

Carol was born on Aug. 6, 1923, to Amyot Willard and Hilda Elizabeth Wheeler Cherrington in Springville, Utah. She graduated from Springville High School and attended Utah State University.

On Oct. 4, 1945, she married her high school sweetheart, Glen Fred Clark, in the Manti Temple in Utah. Carol was very proud of her heritage. She dedicated herself to her family and the LDS church. She spent many years in church service. She and Glen served a mission in Portland, Ore. A highlight of her life, second to marriage and family, was serving with her husband as ordinance workers in the Mesa and Snowflake temples.

Over the years Carol enjoyed many activities, from family history to knitting, sewing, family parties, old movies and long walks. The theme of her life was her testimony of her Savior, Jesus Christ. She loves Him and has earned her sweet reward. She will truly be missed by all, and we look forward to a happy reunion someday.

Survivors include her children, Karen Larson of Snowflake, Joyce Power (Lyle) of Show Low, John (Suzan) of Oxford, Miss., Mary Shumway (Rex) of Winslow and Vicci Giger (Jim) of Show Low; 30 grandkids; 76 great-grandkids; and eight great-great-grandkids.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Glen; her son, Steven; her granddaughter, Charlena; and three sons-in-law, Gerry Nikolaus, Charles Ruark and Larry Larson.
