Patricia Waites Clarke, affectionately known to many as Cici, passed away peacefully in her sleep on January 23, 2020 at the age of 78. She lived a wonderful life and cherished her role as a wife, sister, mother, mother-in-law, grandmother, great grandmother, and aunt. She was able to handle the challenges of life because of her relationship with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Because of this relationship with her Savior, she maintained a positive attitude during her debilitating struggle with ALS. She was born in Grand Cane, LA and grew up in Shreveport, LA. She was a 1959 graduate of Fair Park High School. She married the love of her life, Glenn Cove Clarke II, after graduating from High School in June of 1959. During her adventure in life with Glenn, she lived in Shreveport, LA; Fort Smith, AR; Pittsburgh, PA; and Metairie, LA before moving to Baton Rouge in 1993. She established life-long friendships in each of these locations. She was an outgoing, elegant lady who got involved in the Baton Rouge Newcomer's club and served faithfully in church at Istrouma Baptist Church. She was a wonderful baker and loved to decorate. Her encouraging words, friendship, and smile will be missed by many. She is survived by two beloved sisters, Beverly Waites Bryant of Shreveport, LA and Rebecca Merry Walters of Kyle, TX; a daughter Susan Clarke Landry and spouse Warren, son Glenn Cove Clarke III and wife Donna of Kingsland, GA; grandchildren Olivia Landry Doucet and spouse Jordan of Lafayette, LA, Walker Clarke Landry and spouse Maci, and Cady Lynn Clarke of Valdosta, GA; great-grandchildren Ellery Olivia Doucet, Susanna Rose Landry, Lucy Marie Landry, Wyatt Mac Doucet; and many nieces and nephews. She is preceded in death by her parents Alvin and Christine Waites, husband Glenn Cove Clarke II, and grandson Wyatt Glenn Landry.

Thank you all for caring for me and my family as well. May God bless you and keep each of you safe.

Much love to you all.

Dear Clarke/Landry Family,

We will ever remember this precious Sister/Friend I received when my Mom married into this precious Clarke family. You have all been in our thoughts and prayers since we learned of Patti's illness and are especially so now that she has entered into the arms of Jesus. I admired this lady for her dedication to Jesus, her family, and friends. She was always a bright spot for me whenever I was around her. I praise the Lord for allowing my path to cross hers especially and also to cross the paths of each of Clarke family members.
Our love, thoughts, and prayers will continually go with each of you as you travel this journey forward without her physical presence. But, I feel she will watch over each of you and be aware of every event in your lives.

We send our sincerest wishes for God's strength and comfort to follow you each step of this journey you take.

Much Love,

Carrol Ann and Jerry Cook
