OBITUARY

Radine M Clark

July 10, 1930August 6, 2019

Radine Miller Clark went to be with the Lord on August 6, 2019. She was born July 10, 1930 to William C. Miller and Verna Huck Miller. She attended Mount St. Mary’s Catholic School for girls and graduated from Central High in Little Rock, Arkansas. She also attended State Teachers College where she met and married Lawrence (Larry) Paladino in 1952.

Radine was employed by the two largest Arkansas newspapers, The Arkansas Gazette and the Arkansas Democrat for 30 plus years as a commercial graphic/fashion artist, which was her dream job.

She was a loyal friend. While attending State Teachers College, she was a member of Delta Sigma Epsilon sorority which would not allow her roommate and good friend to pledge because she was Jewish. Radine said that she would not pledge unless her friend was allowed to pledge as well, and they acquiesced.

As an animal lover, she enjoyed watching the dove and squirrels that resided on her back porch. She often said that her fantasy dinner would include Mother Theresa, The Virgin Mary and Robin Williams. She loved entertaining, the arts, classical music, traveling the world, and nurturing her friends and family. She survived two lightning strikes as a child, and she flew a helicopter on her 75th birthday.

She lived in Arkansas for 78 years before moving to Allen, Texas in 2008 to be near her son and daughter-in-law.

She is proceeded in death by her parents Mema and Gaga and her loving pets, Tippy, Julie, Tillie, Lefty and grand dog, Sophie.

She is survived by her son, Lawrence Christopher (Chris) Paladino and his wife, Elizabeth (Libby) Paladino, many nieces and nephews and a great number of best friends, both in Arkansas and Texas.

I just learned of Radine's passing. She was a past member of Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in North Little Rock Arkansas. She was such a sweet and pretty lady. She will be greatly missed. I remember her telling me that she was moving and I hated to see her leave. "Eternal Rest Grant Unto Her O Lord and Let The Perpetual Light Shine Upon Her, May Her Soul and the Souls of All The Faithful Departed Through The Mercy of God Rest in Peace! Amen" Clarene & Ray Hoyt.

I don't have a single memory of Radine, but 100. My mother was Gloria Bausewein Allen and Radine was one of her dearest friends. From my earliest memories Radine was a part of our lives, coming over for small dinner parties or hosting them herself. "The Girls" including Bettylee Green (far right), Bernice Corbell (next to Radine) and my mom would gather and eat, talk and laugh and have a marvelous time in each other's company. My dad often got a kick out of being the lone man of the party. My mother (and in turn, me too) admired so much about Radine: her strength, intelligence, warmth, loyalty and dignity. When my parents moved from Little Rock to Austin to be near me and my family, Radine drew an amazing pen and ink portrait of the home they had lived in for 25 years. It now hangs next to my bed and I see it every day and think of what an incredible artist she was.
My deepest sympathies to Chris and Libby. I will remember your mother so very fondly. She was a true light in the world.
