Audrey was born April 18, 1933, near Royal, NE in Antelope County, the first of three daughters to Lysle and Opal (Romig) Couch. She went to country school, then graduated from Neligh High School in 1950. She attended Wayne State Teachers College and earned a lower Elementary Teaching Certificate. She taught 4th grade in Cambridge, NE, and later 1st and 4th grade in Bloomfield, NE.

On December 27, 1954, she and Alton “Bud” Clark were married at Bartlett Methodist Church. They were married 52 years before Bud passed away at home on February 4, 2007. To this union came six blessings, a planned family she always told them, Callie Renee Martin (Paul Goering), Monte Alton (Carla), Lisa Dawne Flynn (Mike) Marty Gerald (Denise), Lori Richelle (Jim) Tacha, and Mickey Lee (Sheila).

She was a stay at home “MOM”. Until she took a teaching position, with Mid-Nebraska (MNRS) in 1972 – 1973, with daycare of handicapped and other children before it closed. Her main career was not teaching, rather bookkeeping & record keeping in the Custer County Treasurer’s office for 23 years and after a year of travel, etc., as the need for a housekeeper was advertised at Super 8 – later America’s Best Value Inn, she began her second career as housekeeper a few mornings a week, baby-sat two mornings with the youngest grandson Keegan and also Sophie and Roy Eberle. Her plan was to work at the Motel ten years, which she enjoyed as an activity and stayed for nearly 13 years. She took off time in 2007, when Bud passed then Marty in September of 2007, went to be with the Lord. She was near 80 years when she finally slowed down to retirement living.

Audrey is survived by her five remaining children, fifteen grandchildren, Jenny (Charley) George, Shane (Brandy) McIntosh, Shasta Leggett, Nate (Kara) Clark, Katie Blakeman, Lana (Jeff) Burnett, E.J. (Lindy) Flynn, Jessie (Stephen) Mittelstaedt, Mattie (Marty) Demoret, Deena Cook, Marcus (Heather) Kennedy, Matt (Token) Kennedy, Kayla (Carl), Kinsey, and Keegan Clark, also five step-granddaughters, Abbey Lour, Jenesis (Roy) Emory, Mikah (Ian) Neff, Jordyn Tacha, Taylor (Foster) Meier, thirty-two great-grands and two sisters, Beverly Plugge and  Sherry Tucker, niece, nephews, and several cousins. Audrey loved and was pleased with all her children and grandchildren accomplishments. Game night and other family gatherings were filled with laughs and she would laugh heartily at her own “goof-ups” and that was pretty often. Audrey loved working in her yard, gardening, going to Wednesday night Bingo at the Elks, board and Farkle games with family, jig-saw puzzles, bowling, baking goodies for city street guys and CPPD linemen, and traveling by car or air. A cherished trip to Washington D.C. in June 2016, with granddaughter Kayla Clark, was the best!

Bud and Audrey loved fall color trips to Colorado and happened onto a summer cattle drive to summer pasture in Shell Creek, Wyoming, the Black Hills area, and their dream trip by a blue & white Ford pickup to Alaska in 1999. They were gone six weeks. Audrey’s love of adventure began with working at Yellowstone Park two summers while going to WSTC. The summer of 1952, her sister Bev went with her, the summer of 1953, two single teachers from Cambridge Schools were her companions.

Audrey is preceded in death by her husband Bud, their son Marty, her parents, grandparents, also in-laws, Glenn & Mildred Clark, brothers-in-law Don Clark, Rev. Cecil Green, Keith Clark, and sister-in-law Bette Green.
