Funeral services for Linda McNeill Clark will be held at Harness Funeral Home on Saturday, February 24th at 11am. A reception will follow at Onderdonk Hall at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Buffalo, Wyoming.

On February 5th, 2024, Linda McNeill Clark went to be with the Lord. Linda was cherished by her family, friends, and community. She loved food, whether it was gourmet or from McDonald’s; quilting, especially for her grandchildren and great-grandchildren; her sweet dog, Molly; traveling with family or on solo trips; and Jesus Christ. Linda was passionate about people and valued quality time and conversation with loved ones. A hallmark of her life was service to others, especially children, through her career in mental health and her church.

Linda went to college in the 1950s and became a speech-language pathologist. While in college, she met and fell in love with Frank McNeill, to whom she was married and started a loving family. Linda’s career took her into the schools, where she worked with children with speech impairments. She was a supporter of the Civil Rights Movement, raising her family in a diverse neighborhood and sending her children to desegregated schools in the 1960s and ’70s. A lifelong learner, Linda went back to college as an adult and graduated with her Doctor of Psychology on the same day that her daughter, Marcy, graduated with her Bachelor of Science in Nursing. Linda continued to treat children in the school setting, especially children with disabilities. She also treated adults with mental health needs. Linda enjoyed a long and successful career as a psychologist. When Linda’s grandchildren were born, she moved to Buffalo, Wyoming to be closer to family in Buffalo and the surrounding area. Once again advocating for children, she served on several boards in the area including the Johnson County School Board, the Northern Wyoming Mental Health Board, and the CASA Board. Linda lost her beloved husband, Frank, in 1997, and later met another love of her life, Reverand Ray Clark, whom she married in 2001. Linda and Ray lived a beautiful life together in Sheridan until Ray died in 2007. Linda never stopped learning and improving herself throughout her life, and in 2020, she began her journey towards becoming a deacon in the Episcopal Church.

Though Linda’s death was somewhat unexpected to her family, she repeatedly stated that she was at peace and ready to die whenever God told her it was time. Linda, we hope you’re enjoying a delicious meal with loved ones in Heaven and looking down at the children still on earth, whose lives you made better through your service and love. Donations in Linda’s memory can be made to Meals on Wheels at 671 Fetterman in Buffalo, Wyoming, 82834. Linda is survived by her children, Dan (Connie) McNeill, David (Paulette) McNeill, and Marcy (Mark) Schueler, her brother, Raymond (Phyllis) Love, seven grandchildren, and eight great-grandchildren.
