Obituary;
CLARK, MAE COFFEY, 80, died March 3, 1975 at the Harriman Hospital after an extended illness. Mrs. Clark was the daughter of the late William and Nancy Coffey.

She was born June 22, 1894 and was married to the late Charlie R. Clark. She was a charter member of the Rankins Chapel Church where she was faithful in attendance. She served as secretary for many years. She also served as president of the Rankins Elementary School PTA when there was a school in the community. She took an active part in the community activities. Mrs. Clark practiced midwife services for many years. The weather never got too bad for her to walk miles to render services in case of illness.
