On Sunday, March 10, 2019 our beautiful mother chose to leave this earth, family and friends to reunite with her husband, mother, father and sister.
Colleen (Elva) Clarke McFarland was born Sept. 24, 1931 to Oswald and Elva Clarke. She was raised in Tooele, Utah, and graduated from Tooele High School. She married Fayette Park McFarland and they were blessed with two sons and a daughter. Colleen lived in Tooele and Moab for most of her life.
She loved to sew and quilt and belonged to the Tooele Quilting Guild for many years. She also had a love of animals, especially cats – with Matilda being one of her favorites. Colleen is preceded in death by her parents and her sister, Mignon King. She is survived by her daughter Pam (Ross) Erickson, sons Dana McFarland and Kevin (Tina) McFarland, three granddaughters, four grandsons and eight great-grandchildren; and sister Karma Kientzler.
