Clea Pace Crow-Anderton, at the age of 87 left us on October 29, 2020, peacefully in her home in Cedarview, UT
Clea was born November 2, 1932, in Montwell, UT, to Daniel Sweeny & Erma Labrum Pace. She married her baby daddy, Raymond Clarence Crow, Sr., on September 10, 1948. They had two wonderful children, one of which was an accident, but they loved her anyway. After being widowed she found love again and married Kent Orsen Anderton on December 24, 1996. They made their home at the Anderton (Stinkin Springs) Homestead in Cedarview, UT, where Nana & Papa would have the cookie jar full and ready for kids, grandkids, great-grand kids or anyone that would stop by for a visit.
Clea lived a very fulfilling life, she was always busy doing something in her younger years on the Crow family farm, in the fields, orchard, or garden. There was always something that needed done on the farm and Clea was always right there to give a helping hand. As she gracefully aged, the spring in her step was not as high, but she still managed to keep busy, her Avon business was a great way to stay busy and, of course, visiting her friends, family, and neighbors. She enjoyed her Wednesday bowling league and all the great friends she met there.
If she wasn’t on the go somewhere, she was at home crafting and creating handmade items. I am sure the family and most of her friends received a plastic canvas creation of some kind, she enjoyed doing that while she was watching TV or listening to the radio.
One thing that Clea was amazing at, and we will all miss very much, is the very old fashion reminder that someone was thinking about you on your birthday or other special occasion with a hand written card sent through snail mail to the place you live. She didn’t miss many of those moments in her family and extended families’ lives.
Clea is survived by her sister, Dawn Brown, brother, Aaron (Karma) Pace, daughter, Sheryl Crow-Brunner, son, Ray Crow Jr., stepson, Kenny (Kathy) Anderton, stepdaughter, Susan (Wayne) Larsen , stepson, James (Jessica) Anderton, stepdaughter, Sherri (Darrin) Anderton, 15 grandchildren, 19 great grandchildren, 6 great-great grandchildren and many nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Daniel Sweeny Pace, Erma Labrum Pace, first husband, Raymond Clarence Crow Sr., second husband, Kent Orsen Anderton and one granddaughter, Rebel Huntsman.
The family would like to express our sincere appreciation to everyone that has reached out during this difficult time. The support and love will be cherished and never forgotten!
