On March 10,2021 at 3:48 pm our “Meme passed away, surrounded by loved ones.
For 92 years our family has been Blessed with our “Meme”, the heart and soul of our family, our shining example of love. But the Good Lord wanted her now.
Meme was born Marian U Clark on 1/20/1929 in Phoenix to Herb and Ursula Clark, one of 5 siblings that would soon become the extended Arizona family Meme loved so much.
After graduating from St Mary’s in phoenix and attending Mount St Mary University in Los Angeles, Meme returned to Phoenix to devote her life to our Dad, Robert Z Hebets, and Meme’s soul mate for 47 years before his passing. This was the start of the huge extended Clark and Hebets family we have been Blessed to grow up with. Including Meme’s family that would become 5 children,12 grandchildren and 10 great grandchildren as well as 39 nieces &nephews Meme loved as her own.
With her beauty, smarts and personality, not to mention her famous competitive drive, there is no telling where Meme could have gone in life. Instead, she devoted her life to her family, we are all eternally Blessed for that.
Always active, whether it was playing pickle ball or service to her Church, Women’s club, Rotary Club or Bobby Sox, Meme continued to touch others with her love into her 90’s.
Yet, her real joy was all of us, her family. She loved us all unconditionally for 92 years. We will miss you meme, your humor, your spirit, your courage thru all of life’s ups and downs. Most of all we will miss your loving acceptance of each of us no matter what. You showed us how to Love meme, you showed us what true greatness is. You will always be with us, as we live our lives every day to be even a sparkle of the example you set for us.
Rest in peace Meme, you have been the Blessing of our Lives. We are only comforted to know; you are now at peace with dad and all your wonderful family and friends who have gone before you. We know they are waiting in line for their turn to hug you again.
Meme is survived by her 5 children, Deborah, Gregory (wife Andrea), Donald, Eileen (husband Craig), Cynthia (husband Fred), her 12 grandchildren.
