Allene Catherine Clark Chambers

Allene Clark was born January 20, 1926, the oldest of five children of Amos C. Clark and Helen Catherine Rutledge Clark. She professed her hope in Christ as a young child in Webberville, TX. Allene also attended school in Webberville, TX. where her mother was a teacher. Moving to Austin, TX, she attended Rosewood Elementary, Kealing Jr. High, graduated from old L. C. Anderson High School and briefly attended Tillotson College. She obtained a cosmetology license to become a beautician.

She married the late Floyd Chambers and to this union 6 children were born.

Her first church union was St. Stephen Baptist Church now located on East 51st Street. Rev. B. F. Palmer was pastor. She later united with St. John College Heights under the pastorate of her father the late Rev. A.C. Clark and served as musician and choir director. Her husband was then ordained a deacon. She later moved her membership with her husband and family to Greater Mt. Zion. Her husband served as a deacon and she a deaconess and member of the Sanctuary Choir.

When brother, Rev. G.V. Clark was called to Mt. Zion Baptist Church, the Chambers family moved their membership to Mt. Zion Baptist Church. Allene promised her late father that she would follow her brother, become a member and support him in his ministry. At Mt. Zion, she served as a Deaconess; Mission President; Lydia Circle Bible Teacher; Sunday School Teacher-Adult Class; Titus Woman; & Silver Soldiers. She loved the Lord and the "Word". She spent early mornings worshipping, studying and referencing His Word before going to the garden.

During her life Allene was a busy homemaker. She enjoyed playing piano, sewing for her family, and cooking. She loved her lawn, veggie and flower gardens and could be found outside "in the dirt" on most days. It was her way to commune with God and fulfill her faith and belief in knowing "nobody but God!".

After her health failed, and she was confined to the hospital bed, her daily request was to go home because she had plenty of work to do, in her earthly garden. Her final request became home in God's Garden where she could be with Him and tend to His beautiful flowers forever and ever. AMEN.

She leaves to mourn her demise, children, Helen (Al) Patterson; Charles (Joan) Chambers; Shirley (Gerald) Daniels; Sam (Tina) Chambers; Michael Chambers; brother, Rev. G.V. Clark; sister, Ruthie Hendricks (Clarence); 7 grandchildren, Traci Patterson, Kedric (Kenya) Patterson (Missouri City, TX); Kevin (Tracy) Daniels, (Mansfield, TX); Samuel & Gerald Daniels (Denton, TX); Warren Chambers (San Antonio, TX); Sade' Chambers (Richardson, TX); 5 great-grandchildren; a host of nieces & nephews; and many relatives.
