Donna Marie Stimac Clark

June 17, 1944 - September 02, 2018


Donna Marie (Stimac) Clark, age 74, passed away on Sunday, September 2, 2018. A true Bellingham girl, she was born on June 17, 1944 and lived her entire life on the shores of Lake Whatcom where she raised two sons. She was passionate about staying busy (workaholic), politics, and raising & racing High Roller Farm Thoroughbred horses with her long-time partner, Bruce Walton. She took pride in delivering children safely to & from school for 30 years. Donna was a conversationalist that often took the stance of ‘my way or the highway’ with an energetic spark. She was quick to help out others and care for her family. She will be missed by all!

She is survived by her son Gary Clark & wife Cindy Clark, son Curtis Clark & wife Jodi Clark, three granddaughters, Kylie Clark, River Clark, & Kamryn Clark, along with sister Dolores Dean (Frank), twin brothers Dan (Kathy) and Duane (Sue) Stimac, 5 nephews Frank Dean, Ryan Stimac, Sean Stimac, Christopher Stimac & Jeffrey Stimac and 1 niece Amy Lagers. She was preceded in death by her parents Emil & Doris Stimac and nephew Scott Dean.

In honor of her love of water & the peace it brings, friends are invited to join us in a Celebration of Donna’s Life held at the Squalicum Boathouse @ Bellingham Harbor on Sunday, September 16th from 12-4:00.

    I worked with Donna for many years at the Bus Garage. I probably wont say anything here that is much different from anyone else. Donna was a very caring and kind person. She had a very strong sense of what was right and wrong. She was, affectionately known to me as Clark. She was passionate about students rights and the rights of her fellow co-workers. I greeted her for many years as she was habitually one of the first to show up to pre-trip her bus for her morning route, for years out Chuckanut drive. If I am one to judge, she will always be remembered as a great character, in our hour, upon the stage. Jim Metzler
