Lois May (Anderson) Clark went home to be with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Monday, January 31, at 8:19 PM at the Country Club Rehabilitation Center. She passed peacefully in her husband David’s arms, surrounded by family.
Lois, and her twin sister Louise Kay, were born May 21, 1934 to Elmer and Sophie (Olson) Anderson. She graduated from Harbor High School in 1952 and went on to marry her high school sweetheart, David Dale Clark, on July 30, 1955. When David moved to Ashtabula in fifth grade, he made Lois a ring in shop class. They both served as Senior class officers, performed in class plays and were prom king and queen. Their love affair lasted 65 years and will continue.
After High School, Lois worked for the Kelly Services and was hired by the Lake Shore Pipeline Company as a result. She later went on to work as Clerk-Treasurer at the Harbor Topky Library. She enjoyed catching up with friends and neighbors when working at the Board of Elections as a poll worker and supervisor.
She was a life-time member of Faith Lutheran Church, where she was baptized, confirmed and married. She was also a member of their choir and had a beautiful alto singing voice. She was often asked to sing solos for special occasions and learned to sing “How Great Thou Art” in Swedish for family member’s funerals. Lois also hosted Bible Studies in her home for 28 years and served as President of the Aglow Fellowship in Ashtabula for many years. She was influential in bringing many people to our Lord.
Survivors include her husband, David; children, Paul (Pat) Clark of Roanoke, VA, Dale Clark of Ashtabula, and Lori (George) Mohan of Brunswick, Ohio; grandchildren, Lori Clark, Jacob (Kathryn) Clark, Rebecca (Chris) Riquelmy, all of Virgina, Joseph (Brandi) Mosovsky of Pittsburg, and Amanda and Lauren Mohan of Brunswick; and great grandchildren, Skyler, Joseph, Aurelia and Sophie.
She was preceded in death by her parents and sister.
