Details:
  • Elaine Disney Clark, Born May 25, 1924 in Hanover, MD.
    She had a happy childhood and graduated from Glen Burnie High School in 1941. Elaine’s family moved to a house on Camp Meade Road in which her future husband, Thomas Clark, was born. It happened to be across the road from where Thomas’ family moved. They kidded each other that they got together in the early years of WWII because of gasoline rationing, but it was really true love. They were married on October 4, 1945 in Friendship United Methodist Church when Thomas returned from the war in Europe.
    This church was later removed when the airport took over the land and they helped establish the new Wesley Grove United Methodist Church on Dorsey Rd., using the stained glass windows and other fixtures from the Friendship Church.  When Thomas and Elaine moved to Linthicum they again became involved with the construction and establishment of the New Linthicum United Methodist Church which was built across the street from their home. Since moving to Pasadena in 1963, they have been members of Magothy United Methodist Church.
    Elaine and Thomas have enjoyed 67 wonderful years of marriage and raised 4 children. Elaine worked for the C&P Telephone Company for several years before the first child was born in 1947, then she dedicated her life as a wife, a mother and a homemaker.
    She is preceded in death by one daughter, Diane Clark, her parents, Arthur & Jennie Disney, one sister and five brothers. She is also preceded by her grandson, Thomas Clark, IV.
    Elaine is survived by her husband, Thomas Clark, Jr., one son, Thomas Clark, III & his wife Christine, two daughters, Patricia Krehnbrink & her husband Thomas, and Cynthia Parker and her husband Thomas.
     
    She also leaves behind 8 grandchildren, 13 great grandchildren, with one more on the way and 1 great great grandchild. Elaine loved reading, sewing, boating, gardening, and traveling. She also enjoyed working on cross-stitching and made personalized Christmas ornaments every year for her children and grandchildren. She loved participating in family events and having her family around.
    After a long and full life of 88 years, Elaine was honored to go home on December 9, 2012, with God whom she loved very much.
