Verna Larry McClintick

Verna Larry McClintick
Mrs. Carpet Fixer
Our loving wife, mother and grandmother passed in her sleep on July 24, 2013.
She was born on November 19, 1943 in Salt Lake City, UT to Alma Clayton and Vernon Mathew Beckstead. She attended Granite High and Weber State University. On May 6, 1966, Verna married Keith P. McClintick in Ely, Nevada. Together, they opened a Kentucky Fried Chicken in San Francisco and were the Original Mom and Pop owners. Verna was an ER Nurse for 35 years for IHC and spent 30 years working side by side with her husband in the family business Carpet Fixer. She enjoyed working and never had a job she didn't like. She loved boating on the lake and traveling in her motor home where most destinations offered gambling. We hope there are slot machines in Heaven! She was a huge advocate of common sense and wisdom. She thought she could save the world, offered help to everyone, and was successful in helping so many. Verna was extremely loving, caring and giving and is loved in return by many.
She is survived by her husband; children Raymond Villiard (Lori VonWald), Troy (Bea) Villiard, Tawny Lee Lloyd (Kelly Gordon), Tristina (Scott Wilcox) Villiard; 18 grandchildren; 5 great-grandchildren; brother Raymond (Evelyn) Beckstead; many nieces and nephews; daughter-in-laws Bobbee Luke, Catie Scorzato; and son-in-laws Douglas R. Lloyd, John W. Zoble, and Greg Laird.
Preceded in death by her parents; brother Gary Beckstead; sister Sue Ann Draper, Geraldine Beckstead; beloved grandson Christian Parish Villiard; son-in-law Todd Champion.
