Betty Lou Boyd Clark, 92, of Everett, WA, passed away on February 6, 2017, in Monroe, WA. Betty Lou was born in Green Bay, WI, to Lulu and Peter Roberts on September 10 1924. She went to East High in Green Bay. She received a scholarship to become a nurse cadet during World War II, attending Bellin School of Nursing. She married Joseph Boyd in 1947 in Green Bay. Joseph was in the Air Force and he and Betty Lou raised two children stationed in various locations within Canada, Puerto Rico and the mid-west. Betty Lou worked as a registered nurse for 35 years and loved her profession. Betty Lou and Joseph moved to the Seattle, WA, area in 1983 to be near her daughter's family. She was involved in the Air Force Sergeant's Wives Auxiliary, the founding member of the Mill Creek Snappy Seniors and an active member in the Edmonds and Everett Seventh Day Adventist Church. Betty Lou, always the social butterfly, was well known for her beautiful calligraphy penmanship and exchanged hundreds of cards each year - never forgetting a birthday or occasion. Nineteen years after being widowed she remarried to Stanley "Sparky" Clark. They enjoyed many adventures together including camping, road-tripping cross country and trips to Hawaii, Alaska, and Mexico. Betty Lou embodied America's greatest generation, exemplifying traditional values, kindness, faith and humility -- leaving a lasting impression on all those who met her. She will be remembered for her devotion to family, her love of chocolate and the color purple, and her warm hugs. Betty Lou is preceded in death by her husbands, Joseph Boyd and Stanley Clark, and her brothers, Gerald and Wayne Roberts. Betty Lou is survived by her children, Jerry Boyd and his wife, Tracey, Nancy Fredrickson and her husband, Bruce, brother, Dick Roberts and wife, Mary Ann; grandchildren, Eizu Fredrickson, Ariel Gara, Karina Rowan, Shayne Boyd, Connor Boyd, Samantha Reaka, Jay Reaka, eight great grandchildren, and many loving and devoted friends.
