Our Lord Jesus received Linda Jean Clark into Heaven and set her free from Cystic Fibrosis on October 24, 2022 at 4:15 am. Linda was born March 5, 1949 to Joseph Nilsen and Ruby Nilsen (née Parcells) in Bremerton, WA. and shared her childhood in Pouslbo, WA with her brothers Gerald, Joe, and Ed.
Linda married her best friend Jeff Clark in 1968 and had two loving children Tina and Nathan. With the love they learned and embraced from their parents, Tina married her love, Charles Lloyd and Nathan married his sweet love, Karen Lines. Tina and Charles, and Nathan and Karen went on to fill Linda’s life with 11 beautiful grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren.
Linda’s ideal day would include tending to her flowers, talking to the Lord, and sharing her gentle, unwavering love to those most dear to her. Linda continued to emulate the Fruits of the Spirit (love, joy, peace, patience, gentleness, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, and self-control) to those around her even through her weakest days.
Although we will miss our sweet-pea Linda, we know that she is in heaven dancing without pain, tip-toeing through the Lord’s tulips, and reuniting with her Mom, Dad, and special friend Bobbi Ash. Knowing that Jesus’ death and resurrection paved the way for Linda’s eternal freedom in Heaven brings us great joy and peace.
Linda’s celebration of life will be held on November 10, 2022 at 11:00am located at New Beginning’s church in Chehalis, WA. A graveside service will be held at 1:00pm at Claquato cemetery in Chehalis, WA with a reception to follow.
