Clark Funeral Home

Clark Funeral Home was established in 1935 by John Lauren Clark, Sr. and his wife, Christine McNair Clark. Service and traditions founded in that first generation were carried on by John Lauren Clark, Jr. and his wife, Nancy Collins Clark. Now Jason McGhin and his wife, Laurie Clark McGhin, continue those valued traditions as we begin our 85th year of service to South Georgia and North Florida.
