BELFAST — Donna Rae Clark, age 84, of Whittier Road, passed away Aug. 15, 2022, at Pen-Bay Medical Center, surrounded by her loving family. She died of natural causes and extended illness.

She was born in Belfast on Aug. 8, 1938, the daughter of Ross Freeman Sr. and Eunice (Small) Freeman.

Donna was a member of the Crosby High School class of 1956.

Donna was a loving person and a dedicated longtime worker in the customer service and at-home-care industries. That carried over into her home life, and her love of preparing meals to feed folks. She enjoyed being surrounded by family and friends.

A chaplain for the American Legion, and a member of its Auxiliary, she would always find herself in large groups of people, never without a strong word or opinion, and a strong will to back it up.

She is survived by her husband of 68 years, Edwin Clark of Belfast; one son, Randy Clark of Belfast, and two daughters, Brenda Clark Brown of Merritt Island, Fla., and Debbie Walton of Swanville; grandchildren who adored her, Lyndsi Rae Mills, Michael Eldridge, Dallas Walton, Laura Lynch and Christopher Brown; as well as a slew of great-grandchildren prominent in her love: Camron Carpenter, McKenzie Eldridge, Tyler Eldridge, Erin Rose, Brayden Aust, Owen Clark-Walton and Brock Brown.
