Darlene Carter Chambers
April 25, 1933 ~ April 4, 2022
Darlene Carter Chambers was born on April 25, 1933 in Milford, Utah to LaVern and William Carter. She grew up in Caliente, NV where her mom would braid her hair into her bonnet to stop her from getting freckles. Her family moved to Ogden, Utah. Darlene worked her first job at Farr's ice cream scooping the best ice cream in Utah. She graduated from Ogden High School in 1952.
At 19, while roller skating, she met a tall dark-haired man and it blossomed into the marriage to Lawrence George Chambers on October 10, 1952. They were married for 59 years. They lived in Clearfield, UT raising their four children.
Darlene loved to bowl which took her across the country to many states and she made lifelong friends from all the leagues she was a part of.
She was a beautiful seamstress and made several wedding dresses, bridesmaids' dresses and flower girl dresses. She also loved to make quilts; the friendships made while hand stitching was one of her favorite times.
She worked for many years at House of Fabrics as a manager. She was very talented and would share her knowledge of sewing with anyone that asked for help.
Darlene is survived by her four children, Caroline Tertocha (Greg Skelton), Spokane, WA; Florence Allen, Clinton, UT; Moy Chambers (Shelly), Salem, UT; Carla Joos (Alan), Grand Island, NE; 11 grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren. She is also survived by her brother, Ralph Carter (Tonya), West Point, UT. She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Lawrence; a sister, Norma Abshire and her grandson, Jordan.
