Gladys Arvilla Clark King

Arvilla Clark King, passed away peacefully at a local care facility on February 23, 1996, after an extended illness.

Arvilla was born March 6, 1903 in Pleasant Grove, Utah to Hyrum Lorenzo and Mary Ellen Ward Clark. She was the 5th of eight children. She married Arthur Ross King, March 6, 1936.

She graduated from the University of Utah and pursued a teaching career until her retirement in 1968.

Arvilla was truly a great soul, who influenced many lives in her teaching career and her association with friends and family. She will be greatly missed, but her influence will never be forgotten.

She is survived by her son and daughter-in-law, Arthur Clark and Cindy King, two grandchildren: Chelsea and Jason King, a brother, Harold L. Clark, of Pleasant Grove; a step-daughter, Mary Jean Williams, of Martinez, California; and numerous nieces and nephews. She is preceded in death by her husband, and six of her brothers and sisters: Suzanna Mae Grua, Eva Taylor, Winfield Clark, Ethel Allyn, Elaine Baxter, and Ward Clark.

Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m. on Tuesday, February 27, at the Cannon 6th Ward, 934 West Fremont Ave., Salt Lake City.
