Judith Clark

No services are planned for Judith A. Clark. Mrs. Clark passed away May 24, surrounded by family at home in Grass Valley. She was 66.

Mrs. Clark was born June 3, 1940, in Madison, Wis.

She attended Stephens College in Columbia, Mo., and married Jack in 1976. Mrs. Clark raised their combined family of five boys with love and wisdom.

She and her family lived in Pennsylvania until moving to Scottsdale, Ariz., in 1984, where they enriched the lives of friends and attended Ascension Lutheran Church.

In 2006, Mrs. Clark and her husband moved to Grass Valley to enhance the lives of Mrs. Clark’s son and daughter-in-law, Steve and Cherry Hood, and her grandchildren, Stephen and Jamie.

Mrs. Clark asked far less from those around her than she was willing to give of herself. She was an accomplished mother, grandmother, wife, sister, daughter, mother-in-law, stepmother, “nurse,” friend, “therapist,” business leader and Christian. She performed all these roles with unsurpassed honesty, integrity and purpose. She was a giver who made this a better place.

In addition to those mentioned above, Mrs. Clark is survived by her son, Tom Hood and his children, John, Tyler and Sara of Prescott, Ariz; brother, John Friede of Prescott, Ariz.; and three stepsons and their four children in Pennsylvania. She was preceded in death by her parents, Dorothy and Dolf Friede; and husband, Jack Clark.

Memorial donations can be made to Hospice of the Foothills, 2399 Nevada City Highway, Grass Valley, CA 95945.

Arrangements are under the direction of Chapel of the Angels.
