Lorna Gail (Gilles) Clark, 88, of Midway, passed away on Tuesday, January 17, 2023, in her home.
Lorna was born on January 4, 1935, in Midway, a daughter of the late Edmond and Mary (Powellson) Gilles.
Mrs. Clark was a homemaker all her life. She loved being in her home and caring for her family. Lorna loved her little town of Midway so much so that she never wanted to leave! Her home was the perfect place for her, she had everything she ever needed. Lorna loved to spend time in her kitchen baking away. Making special treats for her family and friends and seeing their faces light up when they tried her creations, was something that always made her smile. Another hobby of Lorna’s was all her crafts. She loved creating anything unique on plastic canvas. When she was done crafting for the day Lorna loved to settle in with a good book. Another past time of Lorna’s was gardening. She loved tending to her vegetable garden and creating something delicious for her family to eat. What was so perfect about the way Lorna created her home, was that she really never needed to leave. She had all the food she would ever need and all the love from her family that filled the walls of her home. Raising her family was by far the most important part of her life. She loved her husband, children, grandchildren and great grandchildren more than anything. They filled her heart with so much love and always brought her so much joy.
Surviving are her children, Tracy (Jack) Rushlander, James (Renee) Clark and David (Michelle) Clark, grandchildren, Courtney (Evan) Uselton, Lindsay Walter and Sidney (Travis) Walter, greatgrandsons, Owen and Grant Uselton.
Along with her parents, Lorna is preceded in death by her loving husband, James Malcolm Clark (2023) and two brothers.
