Alma Nance Clark

Alma Nance Clark

1938 - 2020

Alma Nance Clark, 82 years of age, journeyed to her heavenly home on Sunday, October 18, 2020 at her home.

Born in Ruffin NC to the late Eithel Aaron Nance and Patty Layne Nance. Predeceased by her parents, sisters; Mary Nance McGee, Stella Nance Moody, Brothers; Rev. Jack T. Nance, and Aaron Nance Jr. Alma was a loving wife, Mama, Grammy, sister, Aunt, loyal friend and many people considered her their surrogate "Mama Alma."

Survived by her husband of 64 years, Bill, son Eddie (Ruth), daughter Kathryn Clark Bishop (Tom), grandchildren Will & Katie Clark; siblings - brothers; Maynard Nance, Paul Nance, sisters; Allene Simpson, Sue N. Gunn and many loving cousins, nieces, nephews and two BFF’s Berla Lasley & Joan Pruitt and loving friends.

Saved at an early age at Ruffin Stacy Baptist, Alma later became a longtime faithful member of Community Baptist Church, Reidsville. She taught Sunday School, VBS, started the Jr church program and served as church/school Secretary several years. She enjoyed working with the Theatre Guild of Rockingham County. Alma loved to travel and enjoyed planning trips (including Motorcoach) for Seniors. Every trip involved preparation and payment. This, her final trip, was a free gift, paid for by Jesus Christ when he shed His Blood for all who will accept Him by faith. Purchased with His own blood.

Due to God’s Amazing Grace and mercy, Alma bravely battled three cancers since 1996.

Alma's final trip was planned years prior....and now she has graduated to see The King of Kings, Jesus Christ! A graduate of Ruffin High School she was a proud Miss Ruffin (always our Beauty). Alma enjoyed walking on the beach, reading, writing poetry, and taking the survivors walk in the Relay for Life each year.

She wished to Thank her Prayer Partners who walked beside on her journey.

A Celebration of Alma's life will be Friday, October 23, at 1:00 pm with a Graveside Service at Evergreen Memory Gardens with Keith Anderson officiating. The family requests that all attendees please wear masks and be considerate of others with social distancing. You may sign the register book and see Alma at Wilkerson Funeral Home on Thursday from 9:00 AM until 5:00 PM.

In lieu of flowers, memorials in her Memory can be made to: Hospice of Rockingham County, PO Box 281, Wentworth, NC 27375 or Community Baptist Schools, 509 Triangle Road, Reidsville, NC 27320.

My heart breaks for Uncle Bill and the family. Aunt Alma will be greatly missed, especially for her sweetness and ability to make everyone around her feel like they were so very important. She was an Angel on this earth and deserves her eternity with our Lord Jesus. She taught her daughter Kathy to be just like her. God Bless her for the intense caring and "nursing" she did for her Mother, and continues to do for her Father. Alma has left a sweet Angel on earth to follow in her footsteps. We will always remember Aunt Alma with much love.

A true Christian example to her family and friends. Her smiles and sweet spirit was a blessing to others. I appreciate the wonderful friend she was to my mother, Sally Ross. Precious memories of this wonderful woman. May God bless you family with comfort and peace that you will be seeing Miss Alma again. Deborah Ross Andrews

Alma was a jewel. She was beautiful both inside and out. I am blessed to have known her, and honored to be family. She has touched so many lives, and will surely be missed. Alicia Simpson May

Alma had such an impact on all those that had the opportunity to know her. Her kind and caring spirit let you know she was really interested in you. My grandson has memories of her visiting his class at Community Baptist School, giving kids encouragement to work hard, be good and serve God. She touched many lives with that simple message, one she lived daily. We will miss her but cherish the memories we have. Roger and Kay Simpson
