Marguerite Clark

Marguerite Clark (Nana), age 93, passed away peacefully at home in Wilmington, DE on October 20, 2020, with her loving family at her side.

She was born in Brooklyn, NY to the late Vincent and Giovannina DiNardo, was raised in Nyack, NY and spent the last 49 years in Wilmington, DE. Marguerite was a devoted and active parishioner of Church of the Holy Child for many years, a grandmother-caretaker extraordinaire, an excellent seamstress, and a most generous, helpful, and caring individual. Her home was always open to visitors, and there was always plenty of food from which they could nourish themselves.

Marguerite was predeceased by her husband Thomas J. Clark of 43 years in 1997. She will be sorely missed by her children: Thomas, Alison McGinnis (Ron), Robert (Debra), and Joseph, as well as her grandchildren: Robert Clark Jr. (Tegan), Jessica Dugan (fiance Jason Coombs), Joshua Clark, Gregory Dugan, and Jennifer Clark. She will also be remembered by her two sisters, Theresa Sardone (Frank) and Mary Camobreco (Sonny), along with a host of nieces and nephews.

    Dear Aunt Mary and Aunt Theresa, Alison, Tommy, Robert, and Joe and all family, Our thoughts and prayers are with you. How lovely, vibrant, and compassionate was Marguerite! She was and still is an inspiration. I think of her striding down the pathway to Taughannock Falls in upstate NY when Mary & Sonny celebrated their 50th--we could barely keep up with her! I loved her can-do spirit, her resiliency, her deep faith and love of family. How special to have spent that time together. That is just one memory--and you, no doubt, have so many more. May you be comforted by them. She lives on in all who her life touched--93 years worth of grace. Take care & Love, Debbie & family from Minnesota

    Many years ago the phrase “It takes a Village” was used as a title for a book. Ever since then I’ve been using that phrase as a way to describe the life of a child growing up on Forsythia Avenue. There were no shortage of kids in the neighborhood, and with that no shortage of Mothers to answer to. You quickly learned the hard lesson that if you acted up in front of one Mother, they all somehow knew, and subsequently you “paid the price” of being part of the Village later the day. “Wait til your father gets home”. And with the increase in maternal supervision, came the increase of having to do right by Mrs. (blank). Marge Clark was one of my
