Obituary

Mary “Lou” Frazier Clark, beloved wife, mother, grandmother, teacher & friend passed away June 13, 2020. Lou was a native of Guilford County (Julian). She grew up on a farm & learned from an early age the value of hard work. Her parents were Alton & Lessie Frazier. After graduating from Alamance High School, she attended & graduated from Appalachian State University. Lou began her teaching career at Mebane High School & retired from Eastern Alamance High School after 42 cumulative years of teaching. She taught part-time at Alamance Community College during the summers & completed graduate studies at UNC-G & East Carolina University. 

During her first year in Mebane, she met her husband, Curtis Clark, Jr. They were married for 70 years & served their community together with love & enthusiasm. In addition to Curtis, she is survived by her daughter & son-in-law, Vicky & John Pruitt from Winston-Salem & her son & daughter- in- law, Bruce & Pam Clark from Chesnee, SC. Her grandsons were the light of her eyes & they include: Justin (Mary),  Phillip, Michael (Megan) & Joshua. She also so proud of her 3 precious great granddaughters: Emma Grace & Isley Clark & Olive Pruitt.

Lou was an active member of Mebane Presbyterian Church where she served on various committees & taught Ladies Circle Meetings & Sunday School. She enjoyed being a member of Delta Kappa Honorary Teachers Society, Reviewers Club, Mebane Historical Museum, Emma Harris Garden Club, & VFW Post 1920 Auxiliary. Over the years she & Curtis were active supporters of educational & athletic programs of Mebane & Eastern High Schools. She enjoyed reading, playing bridge  & cooking. Lou was blessed with a great family & circle of friends.   

 

Lou will be remembered for her compassion, integrity, appreciation for education & humility. Over the last several years, as her health declined, she continue to demonstrate the characteristics of her life: the fight of a tiger (Mebane High School mascot) & the strength & grace of an eagle (Easter High  School mascot). 

Special thanks to her amazing care givers that allowed her to stay in her home for as long as possible: Latoya & Jakayla Wilkins, Flo Walker & Lovey Swepson.  Her final days were spent at Mebane Ridge where she received excellent care & compassionate attention.

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, June 20 at Mebane Presbyterian Church at 2:00 by Dr. Jeff Smith.
