Nadine Elizabeth Clark

Nadine Clark, a resident of Annapolis since 1975, died on Sunday, November 8, 2020, at Sunrise Assisted Living on Bestgate Road, surrounded by the love of her large family. Nadine was born on April 23, 1931, in Groton, Connecticut to Arvid and Dorothy Chambers. In 1950, she married her high school sweetheart, who was in the U.S. Navy. They had four children: Wendy, Darrell, Pamela (P.J.), and Glenn. The family moved to Maryland in 1965, when her husband became employed by the Department of the Navy in Washington, D.C. Her main job, and what she considered her greatest honor and achievement was that of being a mother. After her children were grown, she was employed in the field of finance and ended her career retiring from the State of Maryland payroll department, under Governors Mandel, Hughes, and Shaefer. She is preceded in death by John K. Clark, Sr., a native resident of Annapolis, whom she married in 1976. John died in 2004; they were happily married for 28 years. They loved to travel, and visited many places both in the U.S. and abroad. She leaves behind four children: Wendy Edstrom (Eric), Darrell Noyes, Pamela Mazza (Phillip), and Glenn Noyes (Dawn); twelve grandchildren: Brian Edstrom(Yari), Adam Edstrom (Kristy), Jason Edstrom (Michele), Allen Noyes, Gregory Noyes (Rebecca), Lisa Culver (Pete), Katherine Mazza-Curtis (Brandon), Amanda Russell (Mike), Emily Everd (Mike), Ross Noyes, Melanie Noyes, Makenzie Noyes; and sixteen great grandchildren: Darrin and Dahlia Edstrom, Kara and Ally Edstrom, Lucas and Harper Edstrom, Phoebe Noyes, Noah, Eden, and Sarah Mazza-Curtis, Taylor, Adane, Natalie, and Isaac Russell, Asher and Levi Everd. Nadine’s family would like to thank her loving caregivers at Sunrise of Annapolis. They treated her as family with love and much good humor, calling her “The Governor,” a reference to Nadine’s tendency to give orders. In addition, Heartland Hospice provided much tender care both physically and spiritually. A private burial service will be held on Thursday, November 12, 2020. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Alzheimer’s Association, or to Eastport United Methodist Church, 926 Bay Ridge Ave., Annapolis, MD 21401 or https://www.eastportumc.org/give

To Nadines children and grandchildren. I was lucky to be a member of the family. I have fond memories of visits with her. Cooking, always smiling and making you feel so welcome. I also enjoyed meeting her mother who lived in Connecticut, and we would go and pick out lobsters for dinner and bring them back for dinner.. , and she loved to watch cooking shows, perhaps that’s why I love cooking so much. Your mom and I would have chats, and I really enjoyed her company. I consider myself lucky to have met her . I am truly sorry for your loss, with love and my deepest condolences. 🙏 Kathy

I will always treasure the memories of playing in and around Granny & Binky’s house with my cousins. Sneaking down into the basement and drinking Squirt sodas. Making fake phone calls on the antique phone in the kitchen. Staring at the painting of the old man praying. Hearing the grandfather clock (my prized possession) and the coo-coo clock celebrate each hours arrival. The family telling jokes and then explaining to you the punchline. Waiting for the flash to be ready on your camera with everyone teasing you about how long it always takes. But most importantly, I will always remember the love you had for all of us. Save me a lobster roll in heaven and I’ll see you in eternity, Granny.
I love you.

I am very sad for the loss of my Granny. She was a wonderful woman. She had a great sense of humor and brought our family lots of laughs and much joy! But most importantly, she was a child of God. Therefore, my sadness is also joy of being with her again in heaven! Because of her, I am part of a huge loving family. Thank you Granny, especially for PJ, she is awesome.

With much love,

Lisa and Pete Culver
