Theodosia Eugenia "Teddie" Clark Thibault
Birth: Sep., 1895
Springfield
Hampden County
Massachusetts, USA
Death: Jan. 24, 1948
Napa
Napa County
California, USA

Boston life and summers spent in Maine was her life with her family of origin: one full sister, Amy, a half sister, Capitola and half brother Fernandize. A natural performer she enjoyed acting in plays. Her father died in 1910, then the entire family moved to Seattle. She and John, a US Marine, met in church one day. He was awed listening to her sing a solo, later he would call this 5'2" 'song bird', Teddie.
They married when she was 19 in 1914 and their first born, Sherman Clark was born in 1815. They bought a brick home in Seattle in 1919 and were still living in it in 1925. She had many pregnancies that she didn't carry to delivery until a girl, Gloria Elaine, who was born in 1925.
Theo and John divorced c. 1930. Their son, Sherman moved to California to live with his father, John Payne. As a licensed beautician, Theo owned her own beauty shop in Arcata, California, off the town square.
About 1944 she married second to Ed Thibault. They lived in Napa, California on Brown's Valley Road. She was a wonderful cook, made memorable dinners and from 'scratch' cakes. Her house was always immaculate. She kept pets: a canary, a dog "Pinky" and a cat.
Heart problems developed and she died two days after a sudden and massive heart attack at age 52. She was cremated at Tulacay Cemetery in Napa, then the ashes were transferred to the Tacoma Mausoleum in Washington state and interred in her grandmother Annie's niche. Her mother, Sarah, step grandfather Garrison are also interred there.
