Doris Emma Clark, beloved sister and aunt, 84, formerly of Rochester, died peacefully Thursday, Dec. 29, 2011, at Ebenezer Care Center in Burnsville.

Doris Lenz was born Nov. 30, 1927, in Wabasha County, to Julius and Hedwig Lenz. On July 6, 1957, she married John D. Clark. They were happily married for 49 years. They had lived most of their lives in Rochester and Raleigh N.C.

Doris was a devoted wife, sister and aunt. She was an expert homemaker and could make anything beautiful. She took great pride in her home and loved gardening, yard work and flowers. She raised and trained several excellent dogs. She was very independent and did not need or ask for anything. She loved her family and her family loved her. It was an honor to know her as she was very content with her life.

She is survived by her baby sister, Janet (Lenz) Webb of Burnsville and Hertha Lenz of Rochester; many nieces and nephews; and her last companion dog "Paddy." She is preceded in death by her husband John, six brothers and three sisters.

A private burial will be held at Calvary Cemetery in Rochester.

Due to private burial, in lieu of flowers, memorials are preferred to Paws and Claws, Rochester.

Macken Funeral Home is handling the arrangements.
