Patricia “Patt” Clark

Born April 3, 1927 in Payette, Idaho to E Lee and Fyrne Brown. Patt was the youngest of six raised on the family farm in Fruitland Idaho. She attended Fruitland schools and graduated from Fruitland High School in 1945. She graduated from the University of Idaho in 1950.

Patt married John A Clark in 1950. They lived in Pocatello Idaho and Bloomington, Indiana until 1954 when they moved to Kennewick, Washington and established Columbia Park. While in Columbia Park their children Jayna and Jim were born. The family moved to Lacey in 1964.

Patt worked for the Lacey Parks and Recreation Department and wrote the first master plan for city parks. Her most notable achievement was writing the grant to acquire Wonderwood Park for the city of Lacey.

Volunteering has always been a part of Patt’s life. She was active in the St Peter Hospital auxiliary; volunteered at the Sunshine House; the first Women’s Olympic Marathon trials; the Lewis and Clark trail run; and several events in the Denver/Winter Park area. She was a volunteer at the Puget Sound Blood Bank, both as a donor and checking in donors.

Patt has been an active member of the Panorama community for the past 12 years. She served as a district representative; co-chairman of the Computer Learning Center; worked on new resident receptions; served on the committee for the new auditorium; and worked on the patio sales.

Preceded in death by her son Jim, Patt is survived by John, her husband of 62 years; daughter Jayna (Philip); two granddaughters Melissa (Luke) and Amy; nieces and nephews; and her sister Brownie.


God saw you getting tired,

when a cure was not to be, so

He closed His arms around

you and whispered,

“Come to Me.”


You didn’t deserve what you

went through and so He gave

you rest.

God’s garden must be

beautiful He only takes the



And when I saw you sleeping,

so peaceful and free from pain,

I could not wish you back to

suffer that again.

23rd Psalm  -

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.  He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: He leadeth me beside the still waters.  He restoreth my soul: He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness For his name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: For thou art with me; Thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.  Thou prepares a table before me In the     presence of mine enemies; Thou anointest my head with oil; My cup rnnneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me All the days of my life; And I will dwell in the house of the Lord Forever. AMEN
