She spent her girlhood in Lancaster, where she was married to the late R. M. Clark, an attorney. They lived first in Waxahachie and then moved to Oak Cliff when it was just becoming known as a Dallas suburb.
Mrs. Clark joined the Methodist Church in her childhood, and was an active member of Tyler Street Church until her health began to fail several years ago.
Survivors are one son, Estill Clark, and two daughters, Miss Myrtle Clark, and Miss Marian Clark, all of Dallas; a brother, Lester White Shreveport, La.; two sisters, Mrs. W. L. Ferguson and Mrs. H. E. Rawlins, both of Lancaster; four grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren.
