Delores Evangeline Knudson was born May 15, 1932 to Earl A. & Lavinia V. Clark in Minneapolis, Minnesota. She passed away on November 3, 2022 in Gig Harbor, Washington at 90 years old. 

She spent her growing up years in Minneapolis, learning piano, ice skating and enjoying summers at Black Duck lake with her parents and brother, Byron Clark. 

As a high school student, Delores worked at Daytons department store and enjoyed time with her many girlfriends. Her family attended the Minneapolis Church of the Nazarene where she devoted her life to Jesus Christ. 

In 1956, she married Myron Knudson and moved to Washington. Soon after, they attended Northwest Nazarene College, then settled in Vaughn, Washington, before their first daughter, Cynthia, was born in 1958. Two years later, their second daughter, Carolyn was born and then their youngest daughter, Colleen, was born.

She found joy in attending church and smiling at the little children. She had a large host of people who called her Mom, Mrs. K and Grandma. Delores was preceded in death by her parents, brother, sister, Darlene Clark, & daughter Cynthia Knudson. She is survived by her daughters, Colleen & Don Worley, Carolyn & Dan Norris, grandchildren, Chris Worley, Ryan Worley, Jared & Lindsay Norris, Samantha Norris, Hannah Norris, Elijah & Emily Norris, great-grandchildren, Reese, Jack, Colbie, Andie & Obadiah.
