Clarice Hollingsworth Rawlings of Preston, Idaho, passed on peacefully surrounded by her family, Oct. 10, 2017. She was born Feb. 23, 1933, in Preston, Idaho, to Maylon Hollingsworth and Coral Peterson. What a great reunion was waiting for her on the other side as the last of six children joined her family.

Clarice met “her prince,” Arvin Rawlings, while only a sophomore in high school. Although they were too young to date, they met at dances and movies and courted until after graduation. They were married June 22, 1951, in the Logan Utah LDS Temple, leaving right after for Sioux Falls, S.D., where he was in training for the Air Force. A year later, they started their family in Slayton, Minn., and later moved home to join the family farm in Fairview.

Clarice loved serving in many capacities in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and was also a very active member of the DUP, however, her greatest love was her family and the holidays.

She is survived by her children, Michael (Wendy), Scott (Ruth), Kip (Christine), Cindy (Larry), Kristi (Nat), and Todd all of Preston. She was blessed with 19 grandchildren and 28 “Great-Grands.” She was preceded in death by her husband, Arvin; by a son-in-law, Todd Christensen; by a grandson, Brooks Rawlings; and by four brothers and a sister.

Funeral services will be held on Saturday, Oct. 14, 2017, at noon in the Fairview First LDS Ward Chapel with Bishop Richard Nelson conducting. Friends may call Friday from 6-8 p.m. at Webb Funeral Home, 1005 S. 800 E., Preston, Idaho, and Saturday from 10:30-11:30 a.m. at the church. Burial will be in the Fairview, Idaho, Cemetery.
