PEMBROKE, Mass. — Marcia Kathryn Clark, 66, of Pembroke, formerly of Barre, Vt., died peacefully on Jan. 19, 2013, in Kingston, after a long and courageous battle with cancer. Born in Barre, Vt., on Oct. 20, 1946, she was the daughter of the late Lynn Fraser and Kathryn (Hill) Clark. She graduated from Spaulding High School in June of 1965. She later moved to California where she met her former husband, Gerard Mahoney, and they moved to Massachusetts where both their children were born. Marcia graduated from the Katherine Gibbs School with a major in business in 1985 ranking near the top of her class. She worked at the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary as management head of information services. Following her graduation from Katherine Gibbs, she went to work at Fairfield and Ellis in Boston and the World Trade Center. Her favorite quotation should serve as a beacon for all of us to follow, “Live every day to the fullest and always look on the bright side of life.”
After her diagnosis of cancer, she became the centerpiece of much quality family time. Marcia developed her “bucket list” and she and her family carried out most of her wishes. She loved and adored each and every member of her precious family and focused constantly on her two children, six grandchildren and her brother and sister and their families.
Marcia is survived by her two children, Brian Mahoney and his wife, Cheryl, and their three children, Brian Jr., Emily and Grace, of Danvers; and her daughter, Lynne Gedutis, and her husband, Adam, and their three children, Caroline, Jessica and Adam Jr., of Pembroke. She also leaves her brother, Stephen Clark, and his wife, Lola, and their three children, Kevin, Kristopher and his wife, Emily, and Korey, of East Montpelier, Vt.; and her sister, Barbie Smith, and her husband, Frank, and their children, Zachary and his wife, Meghan, and Libby Smith, of Essex Junction, Vt.; as well as her Aunt Lorraine and many cousins.
A memorial funeral Mass will be celebrated on Saturday, Jan. 26, at 1 p.m. in St. Thecla’s Church, 145 Washington St., Route 53 in North Pembroke. In lieu of flowers, the family requests voluntary contributions in Marcia’s memory to the Dana Farber Cancer Institute, 450 Brookline Ave., Boston, MA 02215.
