Barbara Nixon Clark

Barbara Nixon Clark woke up in the arms of Jesus on November 18th, 2020 after leaving this world unexpectedly at her home in Louisa. She was born May 29, 1942, in Glen Ridge, New Jersey to the late Leon and Helen Nixon. She was preceded in death by her brother, Robert. 

Barbara (Mimi) is survived by her devoted husband of 59 years, Jeffery A. Clark; two children, Stacey A. Clark (Krista) and Kristy Barnes (Wayne); eight grandchildren, David Clark, Josh Clark, Grace Clark, Hudson Clark, Marianne Barnes Crowley, Caleb Barnes, Peter Barnes, and Laura Barnes; and 10 great-grandchildren, all of whom she adored. 

Barbara’s testimony of grace was shown throughout her 43 years of ministry. She served alongside her husband as a missionary in Guatemala for 13 years, and earlier as a faithful pastor’s wife in Maine and Virginia. Barbara had a way of making every person she met feel special and loved. Her smile and words of encouragement could warm the saddest hearts, and her embrace could soothe the most distraught soul. 

A funeral service was held at 2 p.m. on Monday, November 23rd, 2020 at Christ Reformed Baptist Church in Louisa. Pastor Jeff Riddle officiated the service. 

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that any donations be made to Christ Reformed Baptist Church in support of their generosity during this time.
