Obituary: Janet Alice (Caron) Clark
Janet Alice (Caron) Clark, 72, loving wife, mother and grandmother, passed away peacefully while surrounded by family on Feb. 26, 2019, in Prescott, Arizona.
She was predeceased by her devoted husband of 47 years, Terry William Clark; her father, Amede Caron; her mother, Alice Caron; and her sister, Linda Cox.
Janet is survived by her three children, Todd Clark (Karen), San Diego, California; Laura Gregory, Prescott, Arizona; and Kristina Bell (Curtis), Durango, Colorado. She is also survived by six grandchildren, Coury Clark (Lauren), Phoenix, Arizona, Kylie Dorsey (Andrew) Watertown, New York, Kaitlyn Bell and Kodi Bell, Durango, Colorado, Ryan Clark and Haley Clark, San Diego, California.
Janet was born on Sept. 5, 1946, in Morrisville, Vermont. After she married Terry, they moved to Prescott, Arizona, to raise their family. Throughout her life, she devoted herself to her family and to her work in real estate.
She knew the importance of family and was a loyal daughter, sister, wife, mother and grandmother and thrived on taking care of those around her.
She loved to spend time with others “visiting” with them and taking the time to listen. She developed a good rapport with almost everyone she met.
Over the years, Terry and Janet welcomed many people to their home for holidays and the sounds of laughter and feeling of love filled the halls. She was also a very thorough and conscientious person with a fine-tuned attention to detail. In her 40+ years in real estate, she kept impeccable records and helped many people to find the houses that would be made into homes. Janet started her work at Don Clark Realty with her father-in-law before moving to Realty World and then went on to work at Red Arrow Real Estate.
She took pride in everything she did and passed on to her children and those around her the meaning of teamwork, kindness, generosity, devotion, love, laughter and loyalty.
Janet was a wonderful cook and an avid reader and thoroughly enjoyed the time she spent with family and friends. She showed tremendous strength and character through her final weeks during her bout with cancer. Her openness about her illness and her direction for her family allowed for a more tranquil atmosphere in those difficult final weeks. As a testament to her character, she experienced a windfall of love and support from many people who knew and loved her. She is deeply loved and missed.
In lieu of flowers, she requested donations to West Yavapai Guidance Clinic: WYGC Foundation, 3343 Windsong Dr., Prescott Valley AZ 86314.
