She was born Jan. 27, 1914, in Twin Falls, Idaho, to Asael M. and Cecil Durfee Lowe. She was raised on the family ranch in Almo, and attended grade school there. Due to lack of secondary educational facilities in Almo, she attended high school in Twin Falls, Burley, and graduated from Rupert High School, where she met her future husband, J. Spencer Black. They both furthered their education and graduated from Stevens Henegar Business College.
She worked at Utah Power in Salt Lake City, Utah, and planned on retiring there. She and Spencer were married on June 1, 1935, in Rupert. Their marriage was later solemnized in the Logan LDS Temple on May 29, 1990.
Arica, tired of ranch life, vowed she would never return after she grew up. When Arica's mother became ill, they came back to the ranch where they lived and started their family. To this union were born three children: Jay, Kathy, and Ken. They moved to Burley in 1959.
While in Almo, Arica worked for the school lunch program and after moving to Burley, she worked for the Cassia County Auditor and Recorders office for many years. She made many friends, had an ability to solve problems, make decisions, was straight forward, fair and firm. Her name can be found on many legal documents in the Cassia County files.
She was a member of Daughters of Utah Pioneers, Mini-Cassia Cowbelles, Toast Mistress Club, and Easy Does It Home Demonstration Club. She was active in her church and served in many callings.
