Betty June Hoerning Clark was born June 18, 1942. 

She went to heaven on June 21, 2019, just a few days after celebrating her 77th birthday, welcomed into the arms of her Lord and Savior, whom she had accepted into her heart at an early age. 

She left life on this earth as she lived it — holding the hands and hearts of those she loved at her daughter’s home in Fairview, Tennessee.

Betty graduated from Stockton High School in 1960 and married soon after. Her first marriage brought three daughters who were her pride and joy.

On Feb. 13, 1981, Betty married Robert “Bob” Clark, and and her family grew to include three more children that she cared for like her own. 

For more than 30 years, Betty and Bob operated Clark’s Furniture Store in Humansville and served the local community.

Betty was preceded in death by her husband, Bob Clark, parents Mabel and Delbert Hoerning, stepson Gary Clark, grandson Jensen Killingsworth and nephew Tim Spangler.

She is survived and will be greatly missed by her three daughters, Kathy O’Connor and husband Howard, Debbie Burns and husband Robbin, all of Stockton, and Patti Killingsworth and husband Alan of Fairview, Tennessee; Brenda Tucker and husband Tommy of Humansville; Andy Clark and wife Janet of Plato; 14 grandchildren; 15 great-grandchildren; sister Anna Lee Neal and husband Fletcher of Bolivar; and brothers and sisters-in-law, nieces, nephews, cousins and many dear friends.

A celebration of her life and love will be at 11 a.m. Thursday. June 27, at Stockton Christian Church. Visitation will be from 9:30-11 immediately preceding.
