June 23, 1926 ~ February 8, 2016


Arlene M. Clark of Grand Junction passed away February 8th, 2016 at Larchwood Inn where she made her home for the past four years. She was born on June 23, 1926 in Sutherland, Nebraska to Floyd and Nina (Wilcott) Humphrey.

Arlene graduated from Grand Junction High School in 1947 and married Marvin Booth that same year. A daughter, Rhonda, was born to that marriage which later ended in divorce. In 1975, she married Gene Clark of Olathe, Colorado. He survives.

Raising her daughter alone, she worked diligently to give her only child the best life possible. A woman of great personal faith, Arlene found comfort and strength in life’s many challenges through her belief in God.
