Mary Anne was born in Bristol, South Dakota to John and Lena Erwick, Norwegian immigrants, on June 30, 1931. She grew up in Bristol and graduated from Bristol High School in 1950. She went on to school at the Aberdeen School of Commerce where she excelled in secretarial skills. She then worked for Loel Lust Chevrolet where she ended up meeting her husband, John M. Clark, in the spring of 1958. They knew pretty quickly that they wanted to get married, and were married on December 6, 1958. They lived in Groton where they farmed and raised their family. She was a wonderful helpmate to her farmer husband and she kept a beautiful, organized and welcoming home. Later in life they moved to the country where John enjoyed collecting toy John Deere tractors and she took up doll making.

Mary Anne was a loving wife, mother and grandmother. She was active in the First Presbyterian Church, P.E.O., Putney Ladies Aid and enjoyed her Wednesday morning coffee group with her many friends. Recently she has enjoyed the Monday morning coffee group, too.

Mary Anne was very artistic and creative. She had many passions that she was good at, including cooking, baking, sewing, doll making, drawing and painting.

Mary Anne was kind and generous and lived her life to the fullest!

She is survived by her daughter, Jill (Dennis Gallaher) of Eden Prairie, MN, her son John Timothy (Kelly Cutler Clark) of Groton, two grandsons, Patrick and Timothy Gallaher of Eden Prairie, MN, and one granddaughter, Kennedy Clark Sweeter (Grant Sweeter) of Dell Rapids, SD, and many nieces, nephews and cousins. She is preceded in death by her parents, husband and brother, James Erwick.
