Linda Lou Mary Clark

NORFOLK — Linda Lou Mary Clark died on Aug. 21, 2023, in Oak Grove, Missouri. She was born Aug. 15, 1947, in Pittsfield, Massachusetts, to Frances Mildred (Grace) and Joseph Daniels. 

Linda Lou was an alumna of Pittsfield High School graduating class of 1965.  She enlisted into the Army and received her Licensed Practicing Nurse certificate.  She served during Vietnam and received an Honorable Discharge, at the rank of SGT. 

Linda Lou married Donald Andrew Clark and resided in Norfolk where they raised their two children, Heather Lin (Gaghan) and Donald Joseph. Linda Lou continued her nursing career working at Ann’s Nursery For Babies and Winsted Hospital.

After moving to Florida, she took a position with the Transportation Security Administration as a security officer at the Tampa International Airport and again served our country with pride until her retirement in summer of 2014.  Retirement enabled Linda Lou to become part of a volunteer program at the local soup kitchen donating her time to those in need, expanding on her love for gardening and growing flowers, visiting with friends and family, and traveling with her companion Luis Insignares while visiting military bases along the way.

Linda Lou is preceded in death by her husband Donald Joseph and her brother Thomas Galloway. She is survived by her children Heather Lin Gaghan and Donald Joseph Clark; her son-in-law Tom Gaghan and daughter-in-law Angela Clark; four grandchildren, Amanda, Lauren, Mason and Arabella.

Visitation will be held at Kenny Funeral Home in Sharon, Connecticut, Wednesday, Aug. 30, from 5 to 7 p.m. 

The family asks in lieu of flowers, that donations be sent to the Joy of the Gospel St. Matthew Catholic Church, 9111 90th Ave, Largo, FL 33777; or online at www.osvhub.com/stmat/giving/funds/pinellas-hope-project in her honor.
