Naomi V.

Naomi V. Clark died at her home April 16, 2011 at the age of 96. Born to Issac and Nola Parker March 10, 1915 in Spokane, she was a greater Spokane area resident throughout her life. She spent her childhood and high school years with the Walter Pinkham family on Half Moon Prairie, graduating from Deer Park High School in 1934. During her working career she was a secretary, finishing with a 20-year commitment to United Buckingham Freight Lines and its successors.

The family enjoyed many years at Deer Lake where they owned property and once operated "Clark's Lakeside Inn", a familiar family restaurant noted for Naomi's homemade pies. For four years Naomi and family lived in a remote mining camp in Montana where her late husband was project manager and she ran the crew boarding kitchen. She embraced the rugged challenges with true pioneer spirit and frequently reminisced with fondness about both the difficulties and the beauty of the isolated setting.

In later years Naomi was active in the YWCA Ambassadors Program, the Spokane Garden Club, and a variety of volunteer activities. She was a long-time member of Northwood Presbyterian Church.

Naomi was preceded in death by her husband Arlie (Pat) Clark, and in later years her friend and traveling companion Joe Jantz of Ritzville. She is survived by son Ted Clark (Spokane) and his partner Gene Otto, and grandson Patrick Clark (Ritzville) and Mary Lira.

A Memorial Service will be scheduled at Northwood Presbyterian Church at a later date. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorial contributions could be made to the YWCA, The Salvation Army Camp Gifford Fund (Deer Lake), or Northwood Presbyterian Church.
