Obituary
1925 - 2018
Marjorie Lou Clark Alvey passed away on June 28, 2018 at the age of 93. She was an exceptional woman who lived and embodied the virtues of family, education, charity, and faith until the very end. She was deeply loved by all who knew her and will be greatly missed. Marge was born in SLC, UT on May 5, 1925, to Ruth Milburn and Frank Clark. She married her sweetheart Raymond Fuller Alvey on April 20, 1945 in the Salt lake Temple and together they raised seven children. They celebrated their 73rd wedding anniversary last April before his passing on June 2, 2018. She graduated from the University of Utah with a degree in Home Economics, commenting often that she did so without ever taking a cooking class. After raising her family, she graduated from the LDS Institute of Religion and began a 20 year career working there. Some of her many talents included sewing beautiful clothes, crocheting, making one of kind Christmas stockings, gardening, and a life of church service in ward and stake callings. She and Ray served missions at the LDS Welfare and Employment Centers. She also found time for reading, tennis, bridge, trips to Lake Powell, and traveling the world with dear friends. She's one of a kind.
Marge is survived by her brothers; Bob Clark, Jerry Clark (Barbara); children Clark Alvey (Nan), Bert Alvey (Shelly), Marjorie Rae Deeds (Bob), David Alvey (Angela); 22 grandchildren; and 38 great grandchildren. Preceded in death by her parents, husband Ray Alvey, sister Patricia Olsen, and children Francine Staker and John Alvey.
Funeral services will be held on Friday July 6, 2018 at noon, at the Foothill LDS Chapel, 2215 E. Roosevelt Ave. SLC, UT. A viewing will be held Friday morning from 10:30 - 11:45 am at the church prior to services. Internment at Wasatch Lawn Memorial Park, 3401 S. Highland Drive, SLC, UT.
