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."

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.
