Betty Clark, 87, of Vero Beach
Betty Clark, 87, of Vero Beach, died Oct. 15, 2020. She was born to the late Dudley and Evelyn Bliss in Concord, Mass., one of 10 children.
She married the late Robert Clark in 1951 and resided in West Springfield, Mass., until 1989 when they retired to Vero Beach.
Betty loved family reunions, weddings, and doing the polka with her husband.
Following a debilitating stroke in 1979, despite dire medical predictions she not only survived but thrived, adapting to her handicaps on a daily basis.
An avid cross-stitcher, she created many memories for family and friends with her handiwork, all done with one hand. Betty loved to play cards surrounded by loved ones, and would solve jigsaw puzzles and crossword puzzles by the hour.
She is survived by her children, Robert Clark, of Vero Beach, Linda Haight, of North Yarmouth, Maine, Donald Clark, of Vero Beach, Ronald Clark, of Gray, Maine, Raymond Clark, of Belchertown, Mass., and Roger Clark, of Feeding Hills, Mass.
She is also survived by 11 grandchildren, 10 great-grandchildren, five brothers, and one sister.
