Born September 18, 1901 in Mt. Pleasant, Utah, to Arthur Charles and Lydia Hasler Candland, she was the eldest of nine children -- five brothers and four sisters. Five brothers and one sister preceded her in death. She was educated at Brigham Young High School, then attended Brigham Young University where she was graduated in Theatre and Drama in the new Department of Dramatic Arts. Her major professor was T. Earl Pardoe. She received her Masters Degree in English in 1936. She taught high school in Kanab, Jordan and for nine years at Bingham High School where she instructed in English and Dramatic Arts. She married Henry M. Stark, of Spanish Fork, Utah, in Washington D.C. on his birthday, March 28, 1936. He was a PhD chemist working for DuPont. They were pioneers in establishing a branch of the LDS Church in Delaware. Their old stone house and five pristine acres became a center for the growing LDS population. After Henry retired, the Starks decided to move ``home'' to Utah. In Delaware eager developers wanted to break up their five acres, and in Salem the attitude of the mayor made the Starks avid conservationists. Henry passed away on January 24, 1988 in Provo, Utah. During her lifetime she was interested in many causes, including with her husband: setting up a scholarship for ``Women In Science''; endowing a lectureship in honor of Alice Louise Reynold; and spearheading a drive to build an Alice Louise Reynold Room in the new Harold B. Lee Library. With her husband, Henry, she gave an endowment to the Lytle Ranch near St. George. They were interested in the Bean Museum project because it was a further attempt to save the wilderness. One of her major interests was a concern about the problems of women. Housebound for years by peripheral neuropathy, she used her mind to write many articles and essays, of which some have been published. She is survived by her three children, David in Salt Lake City; Sara in Arizona; and Karen in Texas. She is also survived by 13 grandchildren. Funeral services were held Saturday, May 28, 1994 in Orem. Burial was in the Spanish Fork City Cemetery.
