Gloria entered this life on February 3, 1938, in Stewart County, TN to the late Russell and Ruth Barnett Clark. She attended  Austin Peay University and was a beloved member of First Baptist Church, Clarksville. Gloria was a woman of great faith and unwavering strength. She was the esteemed founder of the Clarksville/Ft. Campbell Christian Women's Club. Gloria's life was a testament to her deep-rooted faith and her commitment to serving others. Throughout her time on this earth, Gloria touched the lives of many with her compassionate spirit and selfless deeds. A mighty prayer warrior with a servant's heart, she dedicated herself to caring for those around her. Gloria's home was not just a place for her delightful home cooked meals, but also a hub for countless gatherings filled with love and warmth. One of Gloria's greatest gifts was her ability to care for others, especially the elderly. For 12 years, she devoted herself to looking after her mother and mother-in-law with unwavering love and tenderness until they peacefully passed on from this world. Her dedication and kindness towards them were a true reflection of her character. She leaves behind a legacy of faith, love, and service that will continue to inspire generations to come.
