1932 ~ 2013|
Dolores Webster Clark age 81 died August 1, 2013 from complications of Leukemia.
She was born February 25, 1932 in West Jordan, Utah to Ernest Daniel and Tressa Margaret Myers Webster. She married J LeRoy Clark on June 3rd 1953. She will tell you it was love at first sight when they met. Their marriage was later solemnized in the Portland, Oregon temple.
Dolores attended public schools in West Jordan and graduated from Jordan High School in 1950. She took secretarial classes following high school and worked several years as a secretary in the Salt Lake City area.
In 1968 Dolores and J moved their family to Merced California where they opened a Kentucky Fried Chicken with the Harmans Corporation. They spent the next 30 years making many wonderful relationships while establishing a very prominent business in Merced. She loved the time she spent golfing with J and her friends. She also enjoyed the travel they did with KFC, especially the trips to Hawaii.
After the passing of her husband in 1999 she moved to Provo, Utah to be close to her children. During the last 14 years she has developed many wonderful friends in the Pleasant View 6th ward as they have given her great friendship and support.
Dolores' greatest happiness in life was her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. She has loved being a part of their lives, watching them grow and seeing the new babies come.
Dolores enjoyed serving in the church and attending the temple. This has been a great blessing in her life. She had a quick smile, was very independent and worked hard all of her life setting a great example for her posterity. Many people called her their friend.
Dolores is survived by her four children, JoDee Sundberg (Jay) of Orem; Kelly Clark (Lisa) of Provo, Lori Smith (Chuck) of Ceres, Calif. and Misty House (Ken) of Grants Pass, Oregon; 12 grandchildren and 19 great grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, and two grandsons, Ryan Lee Clark and Charles Russell Smith.
