Imogene (Jean) Clark passed from this world on May 2, 2014, at her home in Hot Springs, AR, surrounded by her family and care givers.  Jean was born in Garland City, AR on February 25, 1930 to Roland McNatt and Mildred Hudgens McNatt Otwell.



Jean was preceded in death by her above named parents, her step-father L.G. (Corky) Otwell, and her brothers Ray McNatt and Kenneth McNatt.  She was, also, preceded in death by her husband of 55 years, Richard Clark, who was the love of her life. Richard and Jean were inseparable, including a period of several months when Richard was a patient at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center where she kept a day-and-night vigil while Richard was treated for leukemia in a sterile bubble.



Jean is survived by her children: Richard (Carol) Clark II of Conway, AR, Ron (Leigh Ann) Clark of Oklahoma City, OK, and Pam (Dale) Davis of Hot Springs, AR.  She is, also, survived by her grandchildren: Ashley Davis (Justin) Robertson of Fayetteville, AR, and Melissa Davis (Lance) Marriott of Maumelle, AR, two great-grandchildren: Addy and Charleigh Robertson of Fayetteville, AR., and many nieces and nephews.



Jean spent most of her childhood and adult life in Waldo, AR, where she graduated from Waldo High School.  Jean took pride in being a loving wife and mother as well as being an excellent home- maker.  She entered the business world for several years when she owned and operated a women's apparel shop in Waldo. She served for many years as a Director on the Board of Directors of The Peoples Bank of Waldo. Jean was an active member of the First United Methodist Church of Waldo, AR, where she served in various lay capacities until the congregation disbanded in 1999 due to declining membership.  She and her husband then transferred their membership to Asbury United Methodist Church in Magnolia, AR. 



Jean was very involved in her children's activities while they were growing up in Waldo. She served as a den mother for a Cub Scout troop and a leader for both a Brownie and Girl Scout troop. She made many a pimento cheese sandwich and chocolate chip cookie for her children’s school picnics.  She was an experienced seamstress who could create difficult costumes for her children's parts in the annual Halloween Carnival. Jean was, also, an amateur artist who painted for pleasure.  Her art can be found in the homes of her children.



Jean's children wish to give their sincere thanks to the care givers who took such excellent physical and loving care of their mother during the last year of her life.  They would like to give special thanks to Evelyn Holladay, Donna Findley, Toni Buckley and Valerie Cadenhead, who co-owns Right at Home care giver service along with her husband Jimmy.  Jean's children would, also, like to thank Central Arkansas Hospice for the care provided during the last weeks of their mother's life.



A memorial service will be held at First United Methodist Church in Conway, AR, on Saturday, May 10th at 2 P.M. with the Reverend Michael Roberts officiating assisted by Arthur Baker, Jr., Jeans first cousin.



 



In lieu of flowers the family asks that gifts be made in memory of Jean to any of the following:  Arkansas Children's Hospital, St. Jude's Children's Hospital, a local Hospice, or the Food Pantry of First United Methodist Church in Conway, AR.
