Jessie Jewel Montgomery Clark

Jessie Jewel Montgomery Clark ("Granny" to all her knew her) was born on Feb. 8, 1919, on a farm in Fisher County, Texas to John Milton Montgomery and Ester Ruth Webb Montgomery. She later moved to Mertzon, Texas, where she met the love of her life, Willie Raymond Clark. They married on May 17, 1939, in Sweetwater, Texas.

Raymond and Jessie were lifelong ranchers until she could no longer get on a horse. The decision to retire from ranching came shortly thereafter.

Raymond and Jessie were blessed with three children, Patricia Jean, Emerson Ray and Joe Ralph. Jessie was well known for her love of family, cooking, hunting, fishing and expressing her opinion.
