Darla Covington Knowlton Stubbs returned to her Heavenly Father Monday October 5, 2020, at the age of 81 after a courageous battle with congestive heart failure and cancer. Darla was born in Glendale Utah, July 1, 1939 to Henry Esplin and Birdie Finlayson Covington. Even as a child, Darla was authentic, patient, enduring, devout, loving, optimistic and peace seeking.. She always saw the best in others, and was extremely devout to her family and loved ones. As she grew up, she fell in love with then married Horace John Knowlton. As a result of their union, 15 children (8 girls, and 7 boys) were born, and grew up to adulthood. Darla’s husband, Horace, passed away in March of 1987. Nine years later, Darla fell in love and married (Nov 1996) widower Joe Demar Stubbs. Joe was very loving, virtuous and caring towards Darla, and they had thirteen wonderful years together. Joe passed away in June 2010.
Darla was very hard working, and devout to her all of her family (husbands, children, parents, siblings, etc) and friends. From her 15 children, she has 44 grandchildren, and 12 great grandchildren. Her greatest pride and joy came from living the Gospel and loving her family. She was one of the most angelic people to grace the earth.
Darla's last years on the earth were dealing with health concerns that took time and energy away from visiting those she loved. Those around her noted that she endured every trial very well, with courage, patience and grace. Though all Darla's kids were eager to help how they could, her daughter Melody w/ her partner Vic put years of their lives on hold, and contributed much of their resources taking care of, and making Darla's life comfortable. Darla was surrounded by heavenly and earthly angels to the very end. Earth's loss is Heaven's gain, Darla was one of the worlds best.
