Vicky was an amazing teacher at South Lake Elementary. It was a joy to work alongside her.

Oh, how I love and admire Vicky! I consider her an important friend and mentor. She took me under her wing at an important crossroads in my life with patience, understanding, encouragement, and her lovely smile and hug. She allowed me to shadow her in her classroom and helped me come to the decision to follow in her footsteps and become a teacher. As I watched her with these children, including many who needed extra love and attention, I came face to face with a simple fact- Vicky Clark is a truly gifted teacher, in a way that I think very few people are. She transformed a classroom of clamoring students to a group of very happy learners that felt praised and confident. She taught me that teaching is an intellectual challenge and a thrill. I remember years ago running into Vicky and Brent while they served their mission in Salt Lake, and their huge smiles were truly angelic! It’s wonderful to think of them reunited again. How lucky heaven is to have her back. Prayers for you, dear Clark family.

I loved Vicky Clark. She was the sweetest and most caring person I knew. I MSU’s her so much. She will be greatly missed. I was honored to serve with Brent and Vicky at the Joseph Smith Memorial Building in Salt Lake City, Utah. I am grateful for her sweet person and example she was to me and everyone she knew. I have many memories even after the mission. My thought and prayers go out to everyone who knew Vicky Clark. I have great comfort to know she is happy and we all will see her again.

I adore my Aunt Vicky: She was so amazing! She brought light, cheer and positive energy everywhere she went. She was always serving others. I will always be grateful for her wonderful example and friendship; and I'm grateful for the Atonement of Jesus Christ, which will allow me to see her again one day. I love and miss you, Aunt Vicky !!!
The post/phot below was taken when I visited Washington DC last October. When Aunt Vicky heard I was in the area, she dropped everything and treated me like a queen!
"So, I have this amazing Aunt who lives close by. I have always loved and admired her, and here's why: She's always serving others, and spent the weekend helping her son move and taking care of grandkids; then she has the energy to come and pick me up and take me out to dinner! Who does that? My dear Aunt Vicky, that's who! Love you Aunt Vicky!"

Having known Vicki for over 40 years, I can say that she was a light and a joy. I can only envision her with a bright smile on her face. Vicki was always warm and loving, always completely interested in everyone- their joys, their heartaches and their needs. Her gentle compassion in taking care of Brent for many years was touching and inspiring. We will miss her but heaven has welcomed back a beautiful soul. ❤️

Anytime and everytime I ever saw Sister Vicky Clark, she was smiling. I got to see her frequently while serving in the Raleigh Temple. She truly is one of the kindest people I have ever known. She will be missed so dearly.
