Iris Lee Clark
August 28, 1924  -  May 18, 2017


Iris Lee Clark, 92, of Little Rock and Hot Springs, born August 28, 1924, passed away Thursday, May 18, 2017 at home.

Iris was born in Glendale, Arkansas to Robert Lee and Callie Raney Rodgers. She completed school in Glendale where she was an outstanding basketball player. She worked at Ben Pearson Archery, the Pine Bluff Commercial, spent many years as a housewife; and, served at Lions' World Services for the Blind where she was a dormitory supervisor until she retired in 1994. She was selected as employee of the year in 1990.

Iris loved to garden and after her retirement, continued gardening for 20 more years at the Pulaski Garden Center at Two Rivers Park. No one could grow vegetables and flowers like Iris. Many relied on her for advice and assistance, and she gladly offered her wisdom, as well as her bounty, to fellow gardeners.

Everyone loved Iris. She served for 13 years as the door duchess at the Little Rock Bop Club. Never a dancer herself, she admired others' grace and ability. People of all ages in the dance community from throughout the region became her life-long friends. Ever ready with a quick smile and a gleam in her eye it was easy to understand why everyone had a place in their heart for her.

She is survived by her daughter, F. Lee Clark; sister, Lela Mae Culpepper of Fayetteville; and several nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her parents; an infant brother; infant sister; brother, Havis N. Rodgers; sister, Retha Jewel Anderson; and her husband, Richard Morrison Clark.

Her ability to love and be generous was unequaled. No daughter ever had a finer mother.

Visitation will be held Sunday May 21, 2017 at 2 p.m. at Roller-Chenal, Funeral Home, 13801 Chenal Parkway. Little Rock, AR 72211, (501)224-8300 with memorial service following at 3 p.m. Family requests no flowers, but request memorial donations to Garvan Woodland Gardens at P.O. Box 22240, Hot Springs, Arkansas 71903. Burial will be a private ceremony.
