"Our Mother"

Clara Huntsman (Van Steeter) passed away January 22, 2003 at her home in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Clara was born on April 10, 1914 to Ivin Ray Wall and Eva Natalia Lund in Castle Dale, Utah. She was married to James Keith Huntsman on January 28, 1935. He preceded her in death on January 20, 1967. Clara also married Glen Van Steeter on December 6, 1984.

Throughout Clara's 88 years she always had a smile and a witty sense of humor. She excelled in cooking, gardening and generosity. Her house always smelled of fresh cookies and bread. Clara served as President of the Murray Ladies' Lion Club as well as the Ladies' Eagle Club. She was chosen as Mother of the Year and State Mother of Utah by the Eagle's Club. We will all miss her outgoing, warm personality and her sweet directness.

Clara is survived by four children: Annette Hardy (Keith), Edward Huntsman, Jef Huntsman (Diana), and Jill Huntsman; eight grandchildren; and 18 great-grandchildren. She now joins her husband Keith, and her grandson Kyle, in Heaven.
