Joni Clark McDermott

 

Joni Clark McDermott, age 90, of Long Beach, MS went to her Heavenly home on Thursday, October 26, 2023.

Joni was born on August 25, 1933 in Owensboro, KY to the late Harold and Marjorie Pittman Clark. She was a devout Catholic and attended Brescia College in Owensboro, KY. From there Joni joined Texas Gas Corporation in Houston, TX and then transferred to Washington, DC. Settling in Montgomery County, MD, she married and raised her family. Joni returned to the corporate world with Hewlett Packard Corp., retiring in late 1999, and moved to the Mississippi Gulf Coast.

Joni was a loving mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, who made an impression on everyone she met. She enjoyed spending time with her family and friends, gardening, cooking, and taking Sunday drives after church. She was a true gift to us all and she will be sorely missed.

Joni was preceded in death by her parents; and brother, Edward Clark.
