Clark, Marjorie "Midge" Ellen Williams (Cleveland)

Saturday, July 20, 2013
Marjorie "Midge" Ellen Williams Clark, 79, of Cleveland, TN, died on Thursday, July 18, 2013.

She loved, she cared, she baked cakes and cookies, she visited the sick and the shut-ins; she was a wife and mother without compare, still mothering her boys even after they became men. Her every thought was about someone other than herself and she gave, expecting nothing in return, never giving herself credit for any of it. A wise man once said, “True servants do that!” 
She was preceded in death by her parents, Frank and Thelma Williams; and her older brother, Marco Alexander Williams. 

She is survived by her husband, Jack Clark; her sons, Stephen Michael Clark (Michelle), John Mark Clark (Kathy), Matthew David Clark (Candy) and Andrew Daniel Clark; granddaughters, Elizabeth Clark, Jennifer Clark and Eryn Clark; grandsons, Jacob Clark, Ben Clark, Matthew Gillenwater and Evan Gillenwater; two sisters, Patricia Lawson of Hurricane, WV and Sue Fiegener (John) of Cleveland; three brothers, Dale Williams of Clearwater, FL, Ben Williams (Linda) of Oak Hill, WV and Fred Williams (Lisa) of Glen Jean, WV.
Funeral services will be conducted at 7 p.m. Monday, July 22, at Westwood Baptist Church with Steve Morgan officiating. A private family graveside service will be held.
The family will receive friends from 4-7 p.m. Monday, July 22 at Westwood Baptist Church.
In lieu of flowers, please make donations in her name to World Vision, P.O. Box 70399, Tacoma, Washington, 98481-0399. Indicate source code 105429606 and add her name.
Ralph Buckner Funeral Home and Crematory is in charge of the arrangements.
