Clyde and Darlene Hollands

It is an eternal love story.

Clyde Milton Hollands was born in Sandy, Utah, on November 1st, 1931, to George Maurel Hollands and Clara Louise Pitts. Darlene Gladolia Miller Hollands was born in Providence, Utah, on July 26th, 1933, to Omer and Gladolia Miller.

During a military deployment, Clyde proposed to Darlene in a gesture of love that would be remembered forever. He sent her a letter, a symbol of their enduring love, with an engagement ring enclosed. They sealed their love in a marriage on September 11th, 1950, at the Justice of the Peace in Bountiful, Utah. Together, they nurtured a family of six children: Vikki, Kim, Shelly, Cherie, Ricky, and Jerry. Clyde and Darlene shared a love that was a testament to their commitment and devotion.

Clyde worked as an Animal Control Services supervisor until he retired. Darlene was a certified nurse’s Aide and did photofinishing. Clyde’s hobbies included playing golf, fishing, riding motorcycles, and watching the Utah Jazz and Denver Broncos. Darlene loved to cook, collect dolls, and create arts and crafts with her children. She especially loved making horses with her arts and crafts. It was a hobby that she enjoyed with her grandkids, great-grandkids, and even great-great-grandkids! The holidays were special to both, as their cherished families surrounded them.

They were preceded in death by sons Kim and Jerry Hollands, their parents, Clyde’s sister Merna, and Darlene’s brothers Dennis and Royal. They are survived by their children Vikki Wynn, Shelly Erickson, Cherie Castro, and Ricky Hollands. They are also survived by many grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and great-great-grandchildren.

They were together every day for 73 years up until Clyde’s passing on May 21st, 2024. Darlene passed away a short two weeks later, on June 5th, 2024.

While we are saddened that they are gone, we are grateful knowing that they are together again and watching over the rest of us.

We sincerely thank the nurses and aides at Rocky Mountain Hospice.
