My Mama and I were saddened to hear of Mrs. Clark’s death. I enjoyed talking with her when I would go visit Mama. She was such a sweet and very pleasant lady to be around. My Mama (Iris Bryant) and her had really become to know one another and enjoyed each other’s company. She will certainly be missed! We want to extend to the family our heartfelt sympathy to each and everyone of you. Donna Hux and Iris Bryant

Betty was the kindest and most loving person I have ever met in my life. I thank God for the privilege of being her pastor these past two years and for allowing me the opportunity to shepherd her into the arms of the Good Shepherd. I pray for God’s comfort for you all.

My family enjoyed growing up on Caledonia. We were like one big happy family.
Mrs. Clark was such a special lady. I always enjoyed seeing her and her family. We all played together. I also enjoyed visiting her at Bryan Health and Rehab in Scotland Neck. She still had that same beautiful smile on her face. She was such a beautiful loving woman. May God bless her family over her loss.

Growing up on Caledonia was a great thing. Mrs. Clark was one of the sweetest ladies. She loved children and let you know by being nice to all of us. We had a good childhood with wonderful moms like her, my mom, Linda Worley, Mrs. Tant, Mrs. Hall, Mrs. Fleming, Mrs. Mobley, Mrs. Garris and so many more. Rest In Peace!
