December 8, 1927 — March 5, 2018

Ann Clark Chadwick Sorenson


Ann Chadwick Sorenson, our beloved mother and nana passed away on March 5, 2018 at home surrounded by family.  Born December 8, 1927 in Etna, Wyoming to Henry Toles Clark and Lydia Adelia Peterson Clark. She grew up on a farm in Etna Wyoming and graduated from Star Valley High School.

At a Spring Hop Dance at Valleon she met and fell in love with Kaestle Chadwick.  He was all she ever asked for - good looking, sparkling personality, well-mannered and just plain wonderful.  They were married June 13, 1947 in the Idaho Falls LDS Temple. He passed away March 16, 1957. Ann and Kaestle had three amazing sons who enriched her life and they always remained her number one priority.  Later in life Ann married Fred Sorenson September 25, 1974 in Salt Lake City, where she gained two step-daughters who have loved and treated her so well. She was administrative assistant and retired from Kennecott Exploration.

Ann was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and held a variety of church callings.  She especially loved to teach in Relief Society. After the passing of her beloved son Brent, she had an opportunity to be a grievance counselor.  This gave her great joy to help others find the strength she acquired in dealing with loss.

Ann spent her life with many loved family and friends in both her home in St. George and at her special land, Eagle Rock Ranch, in Bedford, WY.   She loved people and anyone that knew Ann loved her for her generosity, courageousness, and spunk.. She was a woman of strength and endured many trials.  Her example impacted the lives of others and she had some of the dearest friends who were by her side through it all. She loved her family immensely and all that she did was for them.  Her grandchildren and great grandchildren were her greatest joy. She taught them that it is important to be a hard worker but more importantly to be a happy worker. There was never a time when saying goodbye that she wouldn’t say, “I love you the mostest”, now we want to say Mother, Nana “We love you the mostest.” The lives you touched are better because you passed their way.

She is survived by, sons, Kirk (Susi) Chadwick; Kim Chadwick; two-step daughters; Sherri (Jon) London; Shauna (Steve) Jackson and their family; and grandchildren Candice (Shane), Ryan (Jenny), Tricia (Paul).  Great-grandchildren Kaitlyn (Lync), Garrett (Attisyn), Tyler, Amanda, Tessa, Kaestle, Joshua, Bridger, Maile, Lydia, Rachel, and Chadwick. Great-great grandchildren Korbyn, Kamry, Quoi, Kepler. She is preceded in death by husband Kaestle, son Brent, husband Fred, and grandson Ron Chadwick.

Funeral Services will be held March 12, 2018 at 12:00 at the Thayne 1st LDS Stake Center, 276 Dana St. Thayne, Wyoming.  Viewing will be from 10:30 to 11:30. Interment held at Bedford Cemetery. Funeral Directors, Cannon Mortuary.

A special thank you to Julie Stauffer for all the years that she helped take care of our sweet mother to allow her to live in her home where she wanted to be.
