Margot W. Clark, 80, a lifetime resident of Greenport, went to be with her Lord and Savior, peacefully on July 7. Margot was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis several years ago.
Margot was the daughter of Una and Reginald Webb, also of Greenport, who predeceased her.
On April 2, 1955, she married the love of her life, Daniel S. Clark, of Shelter Island. She is survived by her husband; their children and spouses, Mary Beth Zhra (Michael), Rebecca Michael (Timothy), Sharon Rogers (Douglas) and Timothy Clark (Elizabeth), 11 grandchildren; five great-grandchildren; her sister and her children; her cousin and husband, her brother-in-law and wife, and many other cousins, nieces and family members.
Margot loved her family, and made them a priority in her life. She was there when several grandchildren were born, and for others made it a point to go to their homes to help in whatever way she could. She had a wonderful way, and a God-given sense for working with children, which provided wonderful support to those grandchildren, their parents, and many other parents over the years.
She also enjoyed homemaking, interior decorating, reading, gardening and learning nutritional avenues to help aid life for she and Daniel.
Margot was well known in the Greenport community for several things.
She loved the Lord and served Him in her church, First Baptist Church of Greenport, and also East Marion Community Church, in many ways over the years. She enjoyed singing in the choir. She also sang with groups as special music was needed for various occasions. Margot loved helping in the nursery, putting on elaborate Christmas programs, teaching Sunday School, housing missionaries, making many meals for those in need, providing support to many pastors, missionaries, and their families, and praying for anyone and everyone that she knew needed that support. One of her favorite verses was John 3:16.
The most important thing that she would want everyone to know and remember about her life was that she knew the Lord Jesus Christ as her personal Lord and Savior, and that you too, can have that same eternal life with Christ when you ask Him to come into your heart and life to be your personal Lord and Saviour. To God be the glory, great things He hath done!
Family received friends July 10 and July 11 at Horton-Mathie Funeral Home in Greenport. A funeral service followed at the funeral home chapel, led by Pastor Tom LaMothe of First Baptist Church of Greenport. Burial followed at Cutchogue Cemetery.
Memorial donations may be made to East End Hospice, First Baptist Church of Greenport or the Greenport Fire Department Rescue Squad.
