Condolence & Memory Journal

Virginia was a kind and a very special friend. She let me stay in her Sun City house when I transferred from Ft.Wayne to AZ for a job. I looked forward to her visits every winter and playing Euchre. I will miss you my friend and know you are in Heaven watching over us. Prayers for the Clark Family. Visit me when you come to Arizona. Nancy Oyler

I really enjoyed having you for my 7th grade teacher at Huntertown. You taught us health, English, and more. You began our change toward being in High School. I remember the classroom with an old coat room in the back and restroom just outside the door next to the library and study hall. You made school fun. I saved my health report booklet we made from all those years ago. I have always been happy you were my 7th grade teacher. It was probably the last year we did gift exchanges at Christmas and it was fun. I also remember I was setting in your classroom when they announced over the intercom that President Kennedy had been shot. Thank you for being a teacher and helping to shape my life and all the students you taught. Your impact on their lives continues on today. May Jesus Bless your family as they remember you Mrs. Clark.

I will truly miss my good friend, Virginia Clark, with whom I taught for many years.
Besides teaching, we managed to play clever tricks on people, but I am fairy sure that she taught me all those things!! I am sending prayers and condolences to Virginia's family.

My deepest sympathy on the passing of Mrs Clark. I was never fortunate to have her for an English teacher at Carroll. I always wished I did! She always had a wonder smile and jolly personality but could always set you in your place if a student got out of hand in the hallway and probably in her classroom. May she rest in Eternal Peace!

We were so lucky and blessed to have such a wonderful role model and person to be able to call Grandma Virge. I will never forget all the wonderful memories we had together.She will never know what a huge impact she has made on my whole family. My children all say they want to strive to be like her. Such an amazing lady. Love you always Grandma Virge.
