On November 10, 2019, Heaven opened up to receive Barbara Clark, wife of Richard Clark, married 67 years, to live forever with their Heavenly father. Barbara Jean Whisenant Clark, age 84, was a former member of Cloud Springs Baptist Church and was a member of Anchor of Hope Baptist Church. Barbara dearly loved her church.

Special to her was her Sister and Brother-in-law, Brenda and Les Isbell, Harrison, TN.
Special thanks to Hearth Hospice for their care, especially Brandi Hicks, who was with her on this journey and took time to get to know Barbara.
Funeral services will be 11:30 AM Thursday in the funeral home chapel with Pastor Brian Haney officiating. Interment will follow at Chattanooga National Cemetery.
