Born in: Owensboro, KY
Resided in: Owensboro, KY

Kathleen Clements Clark, 91, of Owensboro, passed away at 4:45 pm on Friday, September 25, 2020.
Born December 3, 1928 in Daviess County to the late Joseph L. and Essie T. Clements, Kathleen grew up as a member of St. Pius X Catholic Church. She worked selflessly at Our Lady of Mercy Hospital in her younger days, and volunteered her time at the Help Office in Owensboro for many years.

She enjoyed sitting on her back porch in a swing, or sitting on the front porch, just enjoying her day. She loved spending as much time as she could with her children and grandchildren, and enjoyed piecing together quilts. She loved to crochet and read; Danielle Steel being her favorite author. She could dance like no other, and ‘The Twist’ by Chubby Checker was one of her favorite songs.

Aside from her parents, Kathleen is preceded in death by her husband, Joseph Bernard “JB” Clark; three brothers, Samuel “Tommy” Clements, William “Willie” Clements and Aloysius “Wishie” Clements; a daughter-in-law, Susan Elaine Clark; and a sister-in-law, Guenetta “Muriel” Clements.

Kathleen is survived by six sons and one daughter; Joseph Leo Clark, William David Clark, Wilfred Eugene Clark, Charles Bernard (Amber) Clark, all of Owensboro, Michael Gerard Clark of Whitesville, James Anthony “Tony” (Patsy) Clark of Philpot, and Sheila Clark (Clifton) Love, of Richland City, IN; 11 grandchildren; 12 great-grandchildren; and one great-great grandchild; two sisters-in-law, Peggy Clements of Philpot and Judy Clements of Bruceton, TN; and several nieces and nephews.

A Funeral Mass will be held 10:00 am Wednesday at St. Pius X Catholic Church. Visitation will be held Tuesday from 4:00 to 8:00 pm in the Chapel of Haley McGinnis Funeral Home & Crematory, and again Wednesday, from 9:00 am until the time of the service at St. Pius X Catholic Church. Burial to follow in Resurrection Cemetery. Expressions of sympathy may take the form of donations to the St. Pius X Catholic Church Building Fund, 3418 East 4th Street, Owensboro, KY 42303.

  1. Words can’ t explain what joy and laughter she brought to my life just the short time I got to know her. She would always wheel into my office and say what’s going on here… or not saying nothing at and just sit there… we will absolutely miss our times with “Kat” that’s what I called her … sending love out to her kids who I got to know so well!! Everyone is my prayers and if there is anything you need just let me know. ❤️
