Mrs. Eunice Doshia Clark nee Smith slipped away into Jesus arms Nov. 30, 2010, with her granddaughter, Vicki Flux, by her side. Eunice accepted Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior at the age of 73. Eunice is the daughter of Thomas Redmond and Effie Mae Smith nee Richards. She was born in Grant County, New Mexico on the old Robert's place, on Nov. 8, 1918.

Eunice was the baby of the family of 2 brothers and 7 sisters. She was raised mostly in Separ, New Mexico, where she met and fell in love with Jack Lester Clark II at the age of 13 in her dad and mom's store. They eloped on July 9, 1934, in Las Cruces, New Mexico, at the court house by the Judge she went to school with in Separ, when she was 15 and Jack (she called him Tex) was 22. They were married for 61 years.

During their years together, their door was always open to anyone in need. Most everyone felt right at home when they came to visit and often stayed for a while. While sitting out on the front porch, Eunice would cord on the guitar and they would sing together. Our family has many recordings of them singing together.

Tex and Eunice had 6 children, Leona Elizabeth Clark Southern born on 12-31-1935 in Silver City New Mexico (deceased), Jack Lester Clark III born 7-17-1937 also of Silver City New Mexico, Joseph Alfred Clark born 5-24-1939 in Mesa AZ(deceased) Danial Carol Clark born 10-6-1940 in AZ(deceased) Eunice Lenora Clark Collier born 8-6-1942 in AZ. And Jimmy Thomas Clark born 3-1-1946 in Phoenix AZ, She has 19 grandchildren, 18 great grandchildren and 15 great great grandchildren. Plus, many nephews, nieces, and cousins from here to Texas.

Eunice had many accomplishments in her life. She has composed a song, written 2 books on the family history of the Smith's and Clark's, drew out a map of the little town of Separ, New Mexico. This map is in the Lordburg Museum, New Mexico, and because Separ was a rail road station, this map is also in the Southern Pacific Railroad Museum in Washington DC. She also put Separ on the internet under ghost towns, with pictures of the old school house where her and her sisters and brother went to school and most of all the names of the kids she went to school with plus their teachers, One teacher Mrs. Brooks owned a ghost town that western movies are made at now named Shakespear N.M..

Eunice has lived in Lassen County since 1943. She has family and friends that love her dearly and prayed for her constantly while she was going through her illness. For this, our family will never be able to repay, but God will reward them for their love and praying for her when she was unable to do so. But, like the sheriff said at Country Villa where she passed away, "Now she is dancing in heaven with most of her family around her." She loved her Jesus, she would often say, "Jesus belongs just to me." When she got worried she would say to God, "Now you promised you are taking care of all widows and orphans. I am a widow, so I am claiming your promise - you are taking care of me." Please read all of the Chapter of John 14. As she did like reading this and knowing what God had written in the Bible was true. As she would tell people, "All of God's words in His Bible are true, and God always keeps his word." This picture beside her is with all her brothers and sister in order of their birth,plus I thank my son Marvin for putting the headstone on findagrave with her name on it.
