Ms. Linda Sue “Janie” Clark, 70, of Kingsport, passed away Tuesday, November 24, 2020, in Holston Valley Medical Center.
Janie was a lifelong resident of Kingsport. She was the daughter of the late Jim and Harriet Clark.
Janie graduated from Dobyns-Bennett High School in 1969. She retired from Human Resources at Holston Valley Medical Center in 2017, after working for decades at the Hawkins County Press.

Janie was a strong woman who knew what she stood for and was passionate in caring for others. She lived each day to its fullest and immensely enjoyed spending time with her family and friends. Her quick wit and love of laughter will be missed by many. Those that love her are left with a great loss but grateful for the joy of knowing her.
