Josie Trapen Clark, of Tickfaw, passed away October 21, 2020, at the age of 87.  She had recently retired from Dillard’s, where she had worked for over 30 years.  She loved her job, but what brought her the greatest joy was her interaction with people.  She will be so greatly missed by her family, but she leaves behind a lifetime of wonderful memories.  We never doubted her love for her family, she always made it well known.
