at Robertsdale Rehabilitation and HealthCare Center in Robertsdale, Alabama.  She was born September 11, 1920 in Colfax, Iowa to George H. Lawhorn and Rose Highley Lawhorn. 

After graduating from the University of Iowa with a degree in English, she married George Clark.  After his death in a plane crash, she moved back to Iowa City and supported herself and young son, George D.

Widowed again, she moved into Live Oak Village in Foley.
