Clarice Hollingsworth Rawlings of Preston, Idaho passed on peacefully surrounded by her family, October 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 6 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 Temple, leaving right after for Sioux Falls, SD, where he was in training for the Air Force. A year later, they started their family in Slayton, MN, and later moved home to join the family farm in Fairivew.
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.
