Fern Clark Fox November 5, 1923 – March 7, 2018

On March 7, 2018 our “Angel Mother” finally earned the wings she had been waiting for and joined beloved family and friends in a heavenly celebration.

Fern was born November 5, 1923 in Ephraim, Utah, to Clara Caroline Gleave and Judge Rulon W Clark. She grew up happily in Salt Lake City with three handsome and protective brothers, Rulon H (Bunny), David and Calvin. She attended Bryant Jr. High, graduated from East High and the University of Utah. After graduation she taught typing at the U, (125 wpm was a slow day for her.) She married Donald Lott Fox in the Salt Lake temple on October 9, 1944. They had four children and raised them in American Fork. Fern taught 2nd and 3rd grades at Forbes, Shelley and Greenwood Elementary Schools. After retirement, Don and Fern moved back to SLC where they continued their life of church and community service and became world travelers. Fern was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She loved and served her savior throughout her life.

Fern is survived by her brother Calvin Edward (Hilda) Clark, sister-in-law Laurel Fox Hughes, her children: James Edward (Toni Greaves), Ann (Jay) Hardman, Donald Clark (Melinda Hatch), 11 grandchildren and 21 great grandchildren who adored her. She is predeceased by her parents, husband Don, son Robert Clark, granddaughter Lindsay Hardman, brothers Bunny and Dave, and sister-in-law Patricia Fox Dubois.
