Mackenzie Grace Clarke Obituary
POQUOSON - Mackenzie Grace Clarke, age 15, died on Monday, October 26, 2015 at home in Poquoson, VA after a life long battle with mucopolysaccharidosis (MPS). Mackenzie's life may seem too short to many, but those who knew her understood that the quality of her life far exceeded the quantity of time in which she lived. Mackenzie was born on May 27, 2000. "Girlie" was a student at Poquoson Middle School. She was loved by all that knew her. Miss Mac's courage showed us that each day was important and an opportunity to create lasting memories. She loved being with the students in band, watching her favorite DVDs, and cuddling with those that she loved. Purple was her favorite color. Mackenzie had a laugh that would make the entire room smile. Mackenzie is survived by her loving parents, Jennifer and Steven Clarke; brother, Zachary; and sister, Ella. She is also survived by her grandparents Becky Clarke, Bill Clarke, and Bud and Barbara Ives. Mackenzie will be sadly missed by many loving aunts, uncles, cousins and special friends. There is a special place in our hearts for Amanda and Chelle who took wonderful care of Mackenzie at home and school. Visitation will take place on Thursday, Oct. 29, 6:30-8:30 at Claytor Rollins Funeral Home, Poquoson. A gathering of family and friends will take place near Mackenzie's tree at Poquoson Primary School on Saturday, Oct 31, following the 5K Walk/Run. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Grazn' Acres Theraputic Riding Center, 14492 Ivor Rd, Sedley, VA, 23878. Mackenzie spent many years riding her favorite horses at this amazing place. "Although we will miss her every day, Mackenzie will forever remain in our hearts."
