Lynette Madsen Clyde January 27, 1931 ~ January 14, 2022

Lynette Madsen Clyde passed away on January 14, 2022 in Mt. Pleasant, UT.  She was born on January 27, 1931 to Jay and Elmina Madsen in Anaconda, MT.

Her life was marked by tireless service, an intense love of learning, dedication to the gospel of Jesus Christ, and a passion for life.  She leaves behind a remarkable legacy.

Lynette is the oldest of four children. They lived in Montana; St. George, UT; and Ephraim, UT before settling in Springville, UT.

Lynette grew up happy and busy in the “Art City”, where she was involved in school and community activities, including drama, newspaper reporter, yearbook editor, Pep Club, Art Queen, and more.

She was grateful for a family that spent lots of time camping in the mountains and even spent one summer in a tent while her father worked on a road in Cedar City Canyon.

Her years studying at Brigham Young University were eventful.  She was on the Honor Council, in the Sponsor Corp, first attendant as “Belle of the Y”, and a stake missionary.

Most importantly, she met a student, Robert F Clyde.  They were married on June 5, 1953 in the Salt Lake Temple.

They spent two years in Provo while Bob finished his education before moving to Heber City to work on the family ranch.  The family lived in Heber City for 22 busy years.  

They had seven children: David, Tom, Kathryn, Doug, Stephen, Lynda, and Julie.  An eighth child, foster son Wilmer Begoody, also joined the family.

In addition to the family cattle, sheep, and dairy businesses, Lynette was involved in a variety of community, civic, political, and religious responsibilities.  

In 1977, the family moved to a cattle ranch in Joseph, OR.  In 1983 they moved operations to Connell, WA.  In 1994 Bob and Lynette retired to Mt. Pleasant.

Lynette’s life was marked by an intense interest in learning and in enthusiastically sharing that knowledge with others. 

She taught for many years, including 12 years as an early morning and released time seminary teacher.  Her passion for learning included history, politics, religion, and more. Bob and Lynette served 24 years in the Seattle and Manti temples.

Lynette is survived by six children, 38 grandchildren, and 82 great grandchildren, plus three on the way. 

Surviving children include Tom (Glenda) Clyde, Kathryn (Alan) Hadley, Doug (Cindy) Clyde, Lynda (Bill) Boyle, Julie (Trent) Jorgensen, and Wilmer (Val) Begoody.

Lynette is also survived by her sister Nina Egbert and brother Gary Madsen.

Lynette is preceded in death by her parents, brother Lloyd, husband Robert Clyde, sons David and Stephen Clyde, and great grandson Carson Clyde.
