Clarice Jenkins Neeley
November 10, 1932 ~ March 16, 2022
Clarice Jenkins Neeley, 89, passed away at Stonehenge of Ogden on March 16, 2022 of complications from several ongoing health problems. The middle child of six, she was born on November 10, 1932 to LaVon and Emma Jenkins in Newton, Utah. She married Reed Clarence Neeley on November 30, 1951. They were later divorced. From this union came six children.
Clarice lived in Ogden most of her life, residing in North Ogden with her daughter Michelle at the time of her death. She was active in the LDS Church and made sure that her children had the opportunity to participate. She loved to crochet, and we all have many of her dishrags, pooper ducks and witches, and many canvas holiday decorations. She loved Christmas and would spend months trying to make sure that she had some small gift for everyone. She was very proud of all her grandkids and would accept the chance to babysit at any opportunity.
Clarice was preceded in death by her parents, one brother, and one sister, son Michael, daughter Marla, and grandson Aaron. She is survived by two brothers, Arnold (Joyce) Jenkins of Riverdale, Utah and Paul (Joyce) Jenkins of Newton, Utah; her children, Debra (Max) Christensen, Michelle (Marty) Berlin, Kevin (Wanda) Neeley, Andrea Neeley. She is also survived by several grandchildren and great-grandchildren who loved her desperately. She also acquired two bonus sons from our blended family, Jeff (Drena) Hauser, and Bill (Geri) Hauser; and two bonus daughters that were like family, Chris (Larry) Midget, and Bailey (Jacob) Henry. She also leaves behind a very dear friend of 50 years, Norma Sarver and many others.
The family wishes to extend our heartfelt thanks to the nursing staff at Stonehenge of Ogden for their loving care in her final days.
