Arlene Barraclough Clark was born on October 2, 1920, and passed away on March 28, 2015 at the age of 94. Arlene grew up in Lawrence and Topeka, Kansas with her parents Mary and Albert Barraclough and her sister Frances.

After his service to our country, Louis was employed by Shell Oil Company. Arlene was the consummate executive wife. Rumor has it they moved 36 times in their first 40 years of marriage. Every 6 months Arlene would pack up her house and move with her husband and children to a new city and begin to create another "home". A member of April Sound Church in Montgomery, she was very involved in the community. Arlene loved golf, bridge, decorative painting, and quilting. In 2006 she moved to Fort Worth to be closer to her daughter and enjoyed Christ Chapel Bible Church, TCU football, and her friends at Trinity Terrace. She is survived by: Her sons, Ronald Clark and his wife Linda and Douglas Clark and his wife, Doris. Her daughter, Judith Clark. Grandchildren: Bradford Clark, Nathan Clark, Brandon Clark, Christine Roark, Laura Jordan, Ryan Clark, great grandchildren Ian and Alyssa Clark and niece Marilyn Huncker.
