Margaret Jean (Clark) McLean

January 20, 1938 ~ November 15, 2022 (age 84)


Margaret Jean Clark McLean, 84, of Lehi passed away Tuesday, November 15, 2022. She was born the 20th of January 1938 in Nanaimo, British Columbia, Canada. She was the youngest of three children and the only girl born to Henry Clark and Mary Ellen Frances McIntyre.

As a child growing up, she spent many happy times with a kind, loving neighbor, Auntie Maggie or in Duncan with Auntie Dot and Uncle Jim.

When she turned 18, she attended the wedding of a cousin where she met her eternal companion, Kenneth Arthur McLean and they were later married and moved to Vancouver, British Columbia where their children were born, the oldest Keith (Odette), James, Gerald (Linda), Selena (Steve) Pace, Mary (Dana) Christensen-Smith.

While they were still a young couple she was introduced to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and encouraged Ken to join. Just before their 4th child was born, they traveled with their 3 sons to be sealed in the Cardston Alberta Temple.

Margaret was a faithful member of the church and served in numerous callings over many years as well as supporting Ken in his various callings. There was never a Sunday or holiday that she didn’t share meals with friends or new acquaintances, and she thought nothing of going home and rummaging through Dad’s clothes for a stranger she met on the street.

She loved to read, cook, bake, knit, do genealogy and take care of everyone else around her. She loved her husband, her children and their spouses, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. And she will be missed by many.

She is survived by her husband of 64 years, Ken, her brother Cliff (Sharon) Clark, her 5 children, 19 grandchildren, and plenty of great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her parents and brother Chick (Kathleen) Clark. Margaret will be interred in the Lehi Cemetery in Lehi, Utah, USA.

Interment will be in the Lehi City Cemetery.  Condolences may be sent to the family at www.olpinmortuary.com.
