Longtime Moab resident Adeline B. Clark, 82, passed away on November 27, 2016, surrounded by her family.
Adeline was born on December 10, 1933, in Lingle, Wyoming, to Jacob and Katherine Koch. She spent her childhood on a farm near Sheridan, Wyoming; there she developed a good work ethic which she later passed on to her family. She met her lifelong companion Charles and they were married in Sheridan on January 8, 1955. After traveling a few years in the oil fields they settled in Moab in 1961. They were blessed with four lovely children, 11 grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren.
She enjoyed gardening, quilting, cooking, music, dancing and especially spending quality time with her family. When Charles retired, they enjoyed traveling in their motor home and exploring the country.
Adeline was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother; her life was her family. She was baptized as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses in 1958, and she always remained faithful, setting a fine example to her family and friends.
She is survived by her husband, Charles Clark; daughters Cathy (Jose) Churampi (Moab) and Linda (Santiago) Arteaga (Fort Meyers, Florida); sons Robbie Clark (Sacramento, California) and Jeff (Brigette) Clark (West Valley City, Utah); and sisters Elfreda Williams, Helen Showers and Florence Weibel.
She was preceded in death by five sisters and two brothers.
Adeline was always involved in planning fun activities that will always be cherished by those she loved. Memorial services will be held at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 3, 2016, at The Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses, 25 Dogwood Ave., in Moab.
