Born on May 17, 1929 in Millheim, she was the daughter of the late John and Nettie (Overdorf) Taylor.
Marlene worked for the Visiting Nurse Association and Regional Home Health Services as a home health aide for approximately 30 years.
A highlight of her life experience was a trip to the Holy Lands in Israel. She enjoyed taking long walks, reading (especially her Bible) and spending time with her family.
Marlene loved music and sang in different local choirs. Her passion was bringing glory to God through her witness.
Along with her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Lee Clark, who passed away on March 9, 2001.
She is survived by two sons, Dennis Clark (Connie) of Mill Hall and Gary Clark (Kathy) of Linden; three daughters, Jeanette Bergstrom (David) of West Grove, Laurie Yaw of Williamsport and Julie Thomas (Mike) of Jersey Shore; 15 grandchildren, and 19 great-grandchildren.
