February 27, 1954 ~ November 22, 2013
Susan Kay (Williams) Clarke, 59, passed away on Friday, November 22, 2013 at Central Washington Hospital in Wenatchee. She was born on February 27, 1954 in Wallace, ID, to Earl and Katherine Williams. Sue graduated from West Valley High School in Spokane, where she was a cheerleader. Sue moved to the Chelan area after school and married Doug Clarke in Manson. The couple had a daughter, Kelly and a son, Mason together before divorcing in 2005. Sue was working at the Gingerbread Factory in Leavenworth for eight years, starting as a baker and becoming head baker before her passing. She loved her kids, family, friends, music and photography. She was always taking photos everywhere she went of people, scenery and animals. Sue was also known as a terrific baker to her family and friends alike. When she wasn’t taking pictures or baking, she was spending time being a devoted mother to her kids, even in their adult years. She kept score at their softball games and was the team mom.
She is survived by her children, Kelly Clarke and Mason Clarke both of Peshastin; sister, Patricia and husband, Gerry Smith of George; brother, Michael and his wife, Phyllis Williams of Spokane; and many nieces, nephews and cousins that she devoted time to.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Sue Clarke Memorial Fund at any Wells Fargo Bank Branch to help family with final arrangements and to donate in Sue’s name to help others in the future.
