Patsy “Pat Smith” Clark, 78, of Lake Ridge, VA, died on July 25, 2021. A beloved wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend, she passed away at her home surrounded by family after a hard-fought battle with lung cancer. The daughter of Edward and Blanche Smith, Patsy was born in Portland, OR, on November 20, 1942. She made homes for herself and her family everywhere they lived, including Key West, San Diego, and ultimately Lake Ridge. A Navy wife, she held down the fort at home with her four kids whenever her husband George was out at sea. Over her life she served in many professions, and one of her most memorable and favorite was as the lunch lady in the senior lounge at Woodbridge Senior High School. She loved being “mom” to all of the students who came through her line, and she remembered all of them many years later. She loved traveling and camping with her family, and she loved all animals. From feeding the wildlife in her yard to building a custom habitat in her living room to house Wanda Iguana, Patsy ensured that all animals had the best care possible. Patsy is survived by her husband George; sons Larry (Lisa) Clark and Chuck (Tari) Clark; daughters Martha (JP) Maranzani and Hilary (Robert) Cassil; and 5 granddaughters, Courtney Gibson, Rebecca Clark, Sarah Clark, Hannah Clark, and Catherine Clark. Services are scheduled for 11am, Monday August 2, at Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton Church, 12807 Valleywood Dr., Lake Ridge. Interment will follow at 2pm at Quantico National Cemetery. The family will receive visitors on Sunday, August 1, from 1pm to 5pm at Miller Funeral Home, 3200 Golansky Blvd., Woodbridge, VA.
