Musette Marie “Muzzy” Clark
Muzzy was an avid New York Yankees fan, devoted mother and grandmother, who was known as a fantastic cook. She learned to cook at an early age, and there wasn't anything she couldn't cook. Every meal was a feast and she brought her creative skills to the plate. Her large family always enjoyed going to "Nana's" for every holiday and Muzzy's wonderful food. She was famous for her homemade baked beans and none others would compare. She also was an outstanding baker and made many fancy desserts.
Mrs. Clark was a strong independent woman, whom everyone could rely on. Her family has many happy memories and she will be sadly missed by them all.
She is survived by two daughters: Wendella Barry and husband, Dennis of Jamestown, and Jeannee Koterass of Jamestown; two sons: William H. Marsh of Jamestown and Dennis D. Marsh and wife Jeannette of Bloomingburg, N.Y.; her son-in-law, Herman Peters of Jamestown, whom her children are very thankful to for all the care he gave to her; a brother; Garrett Green and wife, Muay of California; nine grandchildren: Dennis Barry, Kimberly Kennedy, Brandi Marsh, Jason Marsh, Tony Meuker, Haley Meuker, Kortney Koterass, Hannah Koterass and Michaele Marsh; and 10 great-grandchildren: Karley Kennedy, Kaitlyn Kennedy, Kendall Kennedy, Grace Marsh, Lauren Marsh, Noah Thayer, Jonah Waite, Spencer Roggenbaum and twins: Drew and Carter Roggenbaum.
