She was the oldest of 6 children, in order Pat, Sue, Yvonne, Jimmie Lou, and the youngest Jerry. She is preceded in death by her parents Myrtice and James Archie, daughter Madeline Lee, her first husband Paul David Clark, her second husband Robert Tuggle, Her sisters Sue, Yvonne, Jimmie Lou and her brother Jerry.

She is also survived by many loving nieces and nephews as well as other family and friends.
She loved her family and found great joy in talking to and sharing their lives. Nana was always ready to listen to our problems, offer advice if asked and sometimes let us know when we were off track whether we liked it or not. She was a famous cleaner whose reputation was legendary. She was known to have her employees hot wash the sidewalks around the restaurant she owned with her husband Paul our beloved Grandad. She was an amazing cook and baker who passed down many of the family secrets to her family. Her home was always a warm safe place to be. She always had a candy dish and a 7UP cake ready for company. We will miss the summer days sitting on the back porch sipping on a cold Coke and talking about family, Her favorite topic. She loved her church and her church family. She was a member of the First Baptist Church of Fresno. She would never miss a service. If she was too ill to go in person she would watch it from home. We will miss our Mom, Sister, Nana, Aunt and friend very much. We love you Nana! Love you more! love you most!
