Florine Clark Armstrong 1916 ~ 2007 Our beloved mother, grandma, sister and friend, died peacefully at her home April 4, 2007. She was 91. Born March 23, 1916 in Tooele, UT to parents, Sam and Ada Clark. Florine was the oldest of eight children. She and her siblings were reared on the Mill Pond Farm, which is now Stansbury Park. Later she attended Utah State University where she studied hard and caught the eye of Ellis Armstrong whom she married in the Salt Lake City LDS Temple, June 8, 1937. Together she and Ellis had eight children. She spent much of her life moving around the country with her husband who was the first Utah Director of Public Roads, U.S. Commissioner of Public Roads and later the U.S. Commissioner of the Bureau of Reclamation. She was called upon to be the hostess of many parties while living in Washington D.C. She entertained with elegance and grace, always paying attention to special details. She joyfully served in many church callings throughout her lifetime. When we think of Grandma, we will remember Christmas and making gingerbread houses, poems she wrote just for us, lovingly stitched needlework, handcrafted gifts, and her stories of growing up on the farm in Granstville. She is preceded in death by her husband, Ellis; sons, Bruce, Larry; infant sons, Thomas and Robert; siblings, Wayne, Elmer, Gwen, Lester; sons-in-law, Michael Jannelli (Elaine), Michael Robinson (Diane).
