Flora Clark

February 21, 1934 — August 1, 2020

Flora Elizabeth Jacobs Clark was born in Louisville, KY on Feb. 21, 1934 and spent all of her single years there. She died August 1, 2020 at the age of 86. Both of her parents are dead as well as her two brothers, William and Robert. She has two sons, Kimbel Raymer and Craig Raymer, still living in or near Nashville. She also has two stepchildren, Dr. Drew Clark of Auburn, AL and Dr. Lisa Smeallie of Silver Spring, MD. She has five grandchildren and eight greats. Her husband, James W. Clark, has lived in the Richland Place Retirement Community with Flo for 12 ½ years.Flo's first love was teaching elementary school children. She taught at Howard School for several years before transferring to Whitsett Elementary. She also served on the staff of Bellevue Baptist Church for a few years. She was always volunteering to serve various charitable organizations but at Habitat for Humanity more than anywhere else.Flo married James W. Clark in 1977 and traveled extensively with him all over the world, from Cancun to Stockholm and from Seoul and Hong Kong to Moscow. She seemed to enjoy her trips to Kenya more than any of the others although her train trip across Canada with the Aderholts may have surpassed even Kenya as her favorite.She and Jim are both members of Immanuel Baptist Church though they have been unable to attend due to her immobility. Both Flo and Jim decided many years ago to donate their bodies to Vanderbilt for medical research but her COVID19 infection made that impossible.Flo will be missed by her family and by her many friends. A Celebration of Life service, led by C. Kenny Cooper, will be held when the COVID crisis is past.
