During WWII, she worked for the Raytheon Company in Marlborough, assembling radar components, but otherwise remained a homemaker. Her hobbies included oil painting, gardening, reading, and playing the piano, as well as ice skating and skiing in her younger years.

She was fond of dancing ever since taking lessons in her youth at the Wayside Inn, where she met carmaker Henry Ford, a folk dance enthusiast.

Mrs. Clark was predeceased by her brothers and sisters, Charles W. Curtis III, James Blair Curtis, Margaret Weiss, and Marybelle Pratt. She was also predeceased by her son, Kenneth C. Clark, in 2010.

She is survived by her son, Lewis F. Clark of Venice, Florida and Marlborough and her daughters, Mary B. Scott of Upton and Margaret (Peggy) J. Clark of Marlborough, as well as eight grandchildren, three great-grandsons, and one great-great-grandson.

She was very fond of and devoted to her many grandchildren, and had a sunny, generally easy-going disposition, which endeared her to many she met.
