Sadly, we lost our beloved Debra Ann Clark, of Lodi, on January 5, 2021 at the age of 59. Debra was born November 22, 1961 in Sacramento, California to Jack and Darlene Clark. She graduated from Casa Roble High School in 1979 and then obtained a degree from Heald Business College. Debra enjoyed her career as a dedicated legal secretary. She was a member of the Stockton-San Joaquin Legal Secretaries Association, holding many positions including President. She attended St. Anne's Catholic Church and remained faithful throughout her life.
Debra was preceeded in death by her parents, Jack and Darlene Clark; grandparents; her beloved aunt, Diana Kirsten; and her unborn son. She is survived by her children, Tiffany Timmerman, Jacob Timmerman (Ashley), Laci Clark (Tony), and Elisha Lower (Eric). She was a devoted Mimi to Ethan, Anna Joy, Violet Skye, TJ, Tony, Evan, Devin, and Kailani. Debra was the beloved sister to Don Clark (Anne Marie), Maryann LaGrande (Brent), Tara Clark, and Todd Clark (Deana). She was the treasured aunt to Logan LaGrande (Lauren), Katrina LaGrande, and Tyler Clark. Debra will be greatly missed by her partner, Doug Smith. Additionally Deb will be greatly missed by her extended sisters, Sharon Kocher (Mike), Lorna Witheral (Dave), and their families. Her cousins were too numerous to count, but held a very special place in her heart and will miss her greatly.
Debra was the life of the party. Always in stilettos, Debra loved to sing, dance, and gamble. She lived life to the fullest and in doing so, brought joy, light and laughter to all that were blessed to know her. She made many lifelong friendships and will be deeply missed.
The family would like to thank the nurses and doctors that treated Debra with dignity and grace during her final days. Additionally, the family will be forever grateful for the love, support, and friendship that Randy and Julie Thomas have always shown Debra. Special Thanks to Cousin Lynn Locke for helping with the many difficult details following Debras passing. We are forever grateful.
The family will hold a private memorial. In lieu of flowers, please send donations in Debra's memory to the Salvation Army, P.O. Box 1388, Lodi, California 95241.
