She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue.
She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness.
Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her:
“Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all!”
~ Proverbs 31: 26 - 29
In humble submission to the will of God, we pause today to honor the LIFE and LEGACY of a loving mother, grandmother, aunt, sister-in-law and friend.
Christine Boone Clark, began her journey through life on Monday, May 15, 1922 in Murfreesboro, North Carolina. She was the seventh of nine children born to the parentage of the late Lewis Boone and Annie Futrell Boone.
Christine’s mother died when she was just a teenager. Subsequently, she had to quickly learn how to cook, care for her family and help on the farm. She took care of her father, who was a farmer, while also working outside the home.
At an early age, Christine accepted Christ and united in Christian Fellowship with Second Baptist Creeksville Church, where she remained a member until her demise. She faithfully served her church in various capacities, including: Sunday School Teacher, member of the Usher’s Ministry and Culinary Committee. Christine’s fear of God, foresight, encouragement, care for others and love for her family, all led her to a life of enjoyment, honor and worth. She was also Mother of the Church. Mother Clark held this consecration in very high regard, as she was often called upon for guidance and wisdom. These attributes aided her as she was a wellrespected and multifaceted member of her community. In addition to serving at her church, she also sang in the choir at Nebo Baptist Church, during her early years.
Christine loved working in her beautiful garden. As an excellent cook, her delicious chicken and dumplings have tempted the pallets of many within her family and throughout her community. In addition, she was known for her decadent desserts. Her niece and nephew referred to one of the rooms in her home as “a cake room”.
Christine was a sweet spirit, who possessed a thankful heart for the things God gave her, whether big or small. To know her was to love her and she was known by many throughout! Christine loved her family and devoted her life to serving others. Christine would always share with others the goodness of the Lord. One of her favorite quotes was, “God can do anything, but fail!” At the blessed age of 100, Christine had some health challenges. However she possessed strength, grace and determination. Meeting new people and interacting with others brought her great joy, as she attended the Roanoke Valley Adult Day Center.
Oh, they tell me of a home, Far beyond the skies. Oh, they tell me of a home, So far away. Yes, they tell me of a home, Where no storm clouds rise. Oh, they tell me, Yes, they tell me of an uncloudy day. On Thursday, March 30, 2023 , God lifted Mother Christine Boone Clark from this world of sin, sorrow and pain, to a place of peace and sweet eternal rest. Her seeds are well-sown; her service on earth is complete, and she’s now basking in the victory and triumph of eternal life. In addition to her loving parents and all of her siblings, Christine was preceded in death by her husband, Eddie Clark.
