Marilyn M. Clark

April 5, 1923 â€" February 6, 2018



Marilyn Moening Clark was born in Cincinnati, Ohio to August and Theresa Moening. She grew up there as an only child, attending Hughes High School, then the University of Cincinnati, achieving a Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration. Following several years as bookkeeper and office assistant in private industry, she yearned for a position "which meant more than just waiting for Friday and dreading the coming of Monday!" Thus Marilyn began a career with the Presbyterian Church, beginning at Menaul School in Albuquerque, New Mexico in 1948. Following three years there, she continued serving her church for another 40 years, first representing the Presbyterian Church's Board of National Missions in the Chicago and Pittsburgh areas, then as Associate for Women's Giving in the Presbyterian Church's head office in New York City, and Louisville, Kentucky. Position responsibilities included being Treasurer of Presbyterian Women, responsible for the oversight and disposition of all gifts given by women church wide. Following retirement, Marilyn and her husband William C. Clark relocated in Albuquerque, where she continued her service, but as a volunteer at Menaul Historical Library. She died peacefully at Manzano del Sol Retirement Village in Albuquerque on February 6, 2018, and will be greatly missed.

Marilyn was preceded in death by her husband and survived by the following cousins: Ruth E. Wilson, Ruth's sons, Jeffrey R. Wilson, William Wilson, and Timothy J. Wilson, all of Cincinnati, Ohio; and daughter Nancy Litvak of Denver, Colorado, with their eight grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.

Memorial services will be held in the Manzano del Sol chapel at 5201 Roma Avenue NE, Albuquerque, on Sunday, March 4 at 3:00 pm. In lieu of flowers, donations in Marilyn's memory may be given to PWP c/o Presbytery of Santa Fe, 217 Locust Street, Albuquerque, NM 87102.
