Agnes “Nettie” Clark, 90, joined her sweetheart and eternal companion Clark on Sunday morning.

Agnes Lehner was born in Salt Lake City, May 15 1920 the youngest child of Swiss immigrant parents who joined the LDS Church and came to America. The family moved to San Francisco when she was about 2 and by the time she was 3 she decided she should be called “Nettie”. She loved growing up in the city and especially Sundays when they would all take the street car to church.

She was known for her for her lovely singing voice at Balboa High where she met Frank Clark (“Clarkie”!) in German class. He kissed her for the first time at the school flagpole the night of graduation in 1937.  They eloped Dec.1, 1941. Their children Frank, Larry and Penny were born in 1941, 43 and 45. Nettie was always the “room mother”, and cub and girl scout leader. She was famous for beautiful decorated cakes, and writing, directing and producing plays and musicals. For many years she collected costumes and vintage clothing eventually having a costume rental business in the “barn” when they lived in Santa Rosa for 30 years.

She lived in Manteca the last 6 years and enjoyed:  being in the Fourth of July Parade with her husband in his patriotic red, white and blue van, watching the “cooking lady” (Rachel Ray),and the  GIANTS (she was a fan for over 50 years). Also anything on KBYU-TV: concerts, play,  Mormon Tabernacle Choir and anything to do with the “Gospel”.  Her answer to all challenges was : “Lets Pray”.
