Patricia Margaret Clark Obituary
April 13, 1926 - September 29, 2017 Patricia "Patty" Margaret Clark, 91, of Aliso Viejo, California, passed away peacefully on Friday, October 29, 2017 at her home. She is survived by her children, Stephen Clark and his wife Susan, daughter-in-law Margaret Clark, Timothy Clark and his wife Shirley, Daniel Clark and his wife Cynthia, Scott Clark, and Rebecca Clark Kane and her husband Stephen. She is preceded in death by her beloved husband E. H. (Hubie) Clark, Jr. and her loving son, Kenneth Clark. Patty was the loving and dedicated grandmother to fourteen and great grandmother to nine. Patty was born April 13, 1926 in Chicago, Illinois, to Donald Hamilton and Leona (Jackson) Hamilton. The family moved to California in 1942 where she attended Burbank High School. It was while attending high school in 1943 that she met her future husband, Earnest Hubert "Hubie" Clark, Jr. Patty and Hubie were sweethearts for the next four years while Hubie attended California Institute of Technology (Cal Tech). Upon his graduation, Patty and Hubie got married and started a life together that spanned 68 years. Patty was a perennial volunteer, always ready to step in and help her community. Though she was raising a family of six children, she found time to generously give many volunteer hours to Our Lady of Perpetual Help Grammar School, Pius X High School, the Downey YMCA, and other charity events. She was the Chairperson for the successful Celebrity Tennis Tournament held in Downey for the benefit of Downey Community Hospital. She was tireless in her efforts to better the lives of others. Patty's greatest passion was to spend time with her family and share annual "family" vacations that took the Clark Clan to many destinations, both near and far. She was an avid scuba diver, logging more than 900 dives, and continued diving into her eighties. Patty was also an accomplished tennis player and enjoyed going to tennis tournaments with Hubie and friends from the Downey Tennis Club. Patricia "Patty" Margaret Clark will be remembered as a loving wife, a devoted mother, grandmother and great grandmother, a dedicated friend, a tireless volunteer, and a proud American.
