Rupert Edward Clark,

The Clark family would like to share with the Taos community the passing of Rupert Edward “Eddie” Clark, 99, on October 16, 2020 in Hurricane, Utah after a brief battle with Covid-19.  He was a schoolteacher in the Peñasco and Taos Public Schools between 1974 and 1981. He and his first wife, long-time resident of Llano Quemado, Paulette Emanuelli Clark, were mayordomos of the San Francisco de Asis church in Ranchos de Taos, in 1979, when the first annual enjarre of the church started. Rupert is survived by his children, Philippe Clark (Kimberly) of Page, Arizona, Anne-Marie Emanuelli (Bruce Gomez) of Taos, and Martin Clark (Tom Krause) of Denver, Colorado, grandchildren, Paul Clark of Alamosa, Colorado and Marielle Gomez of Taos, New Mexico and numerous siblings, nieces, nephews and ‘adopted’ children and grandchildren.
