Obituary for Helen Ladd Clark

Helen L. Clark died surrounded by her family on March 18, 2018. Helen was 100 years old.

Helen was born and raised in the small village of Milford, on September 12, 1917 to parents, Frank and Madge (nee. Bliss) Ladd.  While still attending Milford High School, she met John C. Clark through the music program of Milford Presbyterian Church. They married on December 26, 1938. John was in the Navy during WWII and served in the Pacific.  Helen spent time on the West Coast with John.   After the War, the couple moved to Detroit, while John attended Wayne State University to obtain his Pharmacy degree. Together they bought and managed the John Clark Pharmacy in Union Lake from 1952 to 1973. In 1974 they retired and moved to South Daytona, Florida. Helen lost her husband, John, in 1978. While retired, she enjoyed traveling, golf, cards and researching the family genealogy.   Helen had a big heart, infectious smile and a never-ending love for family.  She will be greatly missed.

She was preceded in death by her beloved husband, John C. Clark (d. 1978), and is survived by her daughters, Nancy (Tom) Snyder, Kathy (Ron) James and Chris (Steve) Fogle; eight grandchildren; fifteen great-grandchildren and one great-great granddaughter.
