Elsie May Clark

Great Falls - Elsie May Clark, 87, of Great Falls passed away peacefully at her home on January 17, 2021, surrounded by her children and a few of her grandchildren. Elsie was born Maria Saitz in Alberta, Canada in 1933 and adopted by Floyd and Florence Green in 1935. She moved to Great Falls, Montana where she became an American citizen. She married Gerald Beaumont in 1953 and later divorced. She raised her three children, Michael, Stephen, and Gerrylynn while working as a baker at Albertson's and later as a nurse's aide at the Cascade County Nursing Home.

In 1975, she married Dale Allen Clark who preceded her in death in 2017. In retirement, they enjoyed traveling to their cabin in Lincoln and later spending their winters in Arizona. Elsie's passions were quilting, crafting, rock collecting and cutting, beadwork, baking, and cooking. She would win blue ribbons on almost all her entries at the State Fair. Most of all, Elsie loved being with her family and friends!

She is survived by her children, Michael (Barbara) Beaumont, UT, Stephen (Kathy) Beaumont, MT, Gerrylynn Beaumont Teasley, WA; grandchildren, Gary Beaumont, Jason Beaumont, Naomi Beaumont, all in UT, Jamie (Jason) Myers, ID, Lacey Beaumont, TX, Aubrey Beaumont, KS, and Taven (Robert) Hernandez,WA; and several great-grandchildren.

At Elsie's request, no services have been planned. Condolences for the family may be shared online at www.SchniderFuneralHome.com.

I’m saddened to learn of Elsie’s passing. I hoped to get to see her this summer as I missed it last summer with the pandemic. Dale was my cousin.

I remember well playing in the yard with "Curly's" children as my sisters and I were close in age with them. My grandfather, Alton Canfield, had a corner grocery store in GF where we'd get cold "pop" and candy bars. Florence Green was my grandfather's sister and they at one time all operated the Canfield-Green Grocery in GF. I know Curly was well loved by Florence and "Bill" Green. We thought she was super lucky to be an only child! My mom, Jackie, was Curly's age and I'm pretty sure they were happy to turn us out on a lawn somewhere and have a bit of "gal time". I'm sorry for your loss, but she certainly had a well lived life.
