Her father was a Master Sergeant in the U.S. Army and she had lived in New Mexico, Texas, Colorado, and Utah. Following her father’s retirement the family settled in Brigham City, Utah and Chris graduated from Box Elder High School in 1974. In 1975 she was working for Pyke Manufacturing in Salt Lake City where she met Jack H. Clark of South Weber, Utah. They were married on September 17, 1977 in South Weber.
