Mary Clark Obituary
Clark, Mary
Mary Arlene Clark, 82, died September 20, 2017 at a Bangor Health Care Facility. She was born December 20, 1938 in Barnsville, OH, a daughter of John and Mary (Hartley) Hall. Mrs. Clark was born and raised in Ohio, moved to Maine in 1972, moved back to Ohio in 1981, and returned to Maine in 2004. She had a love for children and drove school bus in both Maine and Ohio. She retired from Huntington National Bank in 1997. She enjoyed cooking and baking, needlework, gardens and flowers. She was an award winning baker, winning Best in Show at the Tuscarawas County (OH) Fair for her German Chocolate Cake. She was a devoted and loving wife, mother and grandmother and was the matriarch of the Clark family. Many summers were spent camping and the motto always was "Camping we will be until snow you see". A crack shot, she gained the nickname "Annie Oakley" after picking off a destructive ground hog at almost 100 yards. She is survived by her husband of 60 years, Barrett "Gene" Clark of Levant; two sons, Tim Clark and his wife, Irina of Ukraine, Don Clark of Carmel; daughter, Jonna Elliott and her husband, Glenn of Atlanta, GA; 6 grandchildren, Yana Tyshechka, Ryan Clark, Sarah Elliott, Nicole Clark, Dennis Elliott and Megan Thibodeau; 12 great grandchildren; a sister, Olive Gilmore of OH; and brother, Bill Hall of OH; numerus nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by a son Bruce Clark, grandson David Elliott, and brother Bob Hall. Friends and family will gather 1-2 p.m. Sunday at the BIRMINGHAM FUNERAL HOME, 438 Main St., Old Town, where a celebration of life service will take place at 2 p.m. Casual dress is requested. The family wishes to offer a heartfelt thank you to Levant Fire/Rescue, St. Joseph Hospital, and Eastside Rehabilitation for their kindness, compassion and professionalism.
