Jean P. Clark, age 81, of Weymouth passed away on January 9, 2019. Jean was born and raised in Weymouth and was active in the Old South Union Church growing up. She lived in Weymouth until 1959 when she married Fred Clark of Scotland, CT.

Jean was an artist with needle and thread and created an amazing array of rugs, wall hangings, quilts, and stuffed animals. She also possessed the ability to patch and fix just about anything. Over the years, she taught rug hooking including several television appearances, needlepoint, quilting, and many other advanced and intricate sewing techniques. She also loved to paint on fabric including sweatshirts with dogs, cats, horses, dinosaurs, athletes, and landscapes. Countless beautiful creations she gifted upon family and friends and she will be remembered through all the blankets and quilts that get daily use and other things like Christmas decorations that will be used for decades to come.
Jean also loved gardening and was always growing a wide variety of flowers, fruits, and vegetables. One of her favorite places was Nantasket Beach where she would frequently go with her mother to go on walks or to watch the storms.
