A graveside service will be held Friday, May 15, beginning at 11 a.m. at Roselawn Cemetery, in Decatur, Ala. Officiating will be Ben Hayes, pulpit minister of Highland Park Church of Christ, where Mrs. Clark attended faithfully until her health prevented regular attendance.
Mrs. Clark, “Meme” to her family, was a godly woman who was known for wanting to do things for others. Even into her 90’s she continued to visit the sick and cook for them. She enjoyed baking and quilting with the ladies from her church. She sat and read her Bible daily. She lived an active lifestyle which included daily exercise. Her laugh was contagious. She loved her family, loved her friends at the Muscle Shoals Senior Living Center, loved her church family, but most importantly she loved God. She always enjoyed life, having fun, following her favorite sports teams (Alabama Football and Atlanta Braves Baseball) and watching the Game Show Network.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Vinton and Hattie Hooie Wallace of Decatur, AL; her husband of 70 years, Charles E. Clark, Sr.; brother, Talmadge Wallace (Zera), and brother, Harlan Wallace (Rumell).
