Helen Clark Griffiths, 88, passed away peacefully Feb. 9. She was born Aug. 15, 1924 in Parowan. She is survived by her children Linda, Tamara (Roger) Thompson, Calvin (Buff), David (Jan), Chad (Jennifer), Marta (Joseph) Herbert and Rex (Rossana), 23 grandchildren and 31 great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her husband Lowell Andrew Griffiths, parents Porter Amasa Clark and Emma Eulala Leonard, siblings Elizabeth Clark, Olga Ruth Maughan, Rose Marie Laner and Porter Amasa Clark Jr. Helen and Lowell raised seven children. She served in many positions for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and enjoyed sharing her testimony with others in the capacity of a teacher and genealogist. Mom had a special place in her heart for scouting. She served as a den mother (leader) in the Cub Scouts and earned four Eagle Scouts (her sons got the awards). Mom and Dad served two full-time missions in Pennsylvania and California and as temple workers in the Provo Temple. Together, they raised seven missionaries (the oldest serving a life long mission). She loved cooking, especially the fish that her husband and children caught on many of their vacations. We would like to thank the staff and residents of Legacy for their love and support and her physical therapist, Clay Watkins, who gave her cheer, hope and needed help.
