MARGARET  “PEG”  CLARK

Peg (Bendel) Clark, age 89 of Jefferson Hills, Pennsylvania, passed away in West Newton, Pennsylvania at the home of her daughter Doris, surrounded by her family. She was the last surviving child of fifteen children of Henry and Julia (Ballas) Bendel.  She was born on February 19, 1933, in what was then Jefferson Township, Pennsylvania.

Peg was always active at her church, James Chapel (Stone Church) in Washington County, PA.

Peg did everything for everybody, but her greatest loves were her family.

In addition to her parents and all her siblings, she was preceded in death by her husband, Raymond Harry Clark, who passed away on November 7, 2004.  Peg is survived by her two children, Wayne (Amy) Clark of Venice, Florida, and Doris (Roy) Johnston of West Newton; four grandchildren, Matthew (Emily) Johnston, Ashley Johnston, Josh (Sarah) Clark and Michael (Samantha) Clark; eleven great grandchildren; one sister-in-law and one brother-in-law.
