Leona Clark, 90, of Largo, Florida, passed away peacefully on Aug. 28, 2020.
Leona was born in Saranac Lake on Dec. 22, 1929, the daughter of the late Ralph Gowett and Lilian Maynard Gowett. In 1947 she married the late Howard J. Clark, and together they spent most of their lives in Frankfort. Leona, fondly known by all as Moom, spent many years working for Masonic Home until she retired in 1996. Devoted to family, Leona will be lovingly remembered as generous, kind, caring and hard-working, who welcomed everyone to her home and could always be counted on for having a pot of coffee brewing and a hot meal waiting.

Leona was predeceased by her daughter Mary Clark and her son Howard “Butch” Clark.
