Hanna Belle Clark was born on January 7, 1997, in Jonesboro AR, to her parents Meleia and Johnnie Clark and her big sister, Jonna. She left this world on January 13, 2021, at UAMS in Little Rock. She is a graduate of Paragould High School and the University of Arkansas Little Rock (UALR) with a degree in communications. She worked for the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette. At UALR, Hanna was a Chi Omega and a member of the Trojan dance team. Hanna began dance at about age 3 and was hooked! Her happiest times can be traced back to dance. She is a wonderful little sister to Jonna and a wonderful big sister to Zane and an awesome mom to Ryder, her Labradoodle. A more precious daughter or granddaughter cannot be found, this side of heaven. She is a Christian and is awaiting all other Christians in heaven. Her little dancer's foot has left such a huge footprint on life. She touched others in ways even she was unaware of at the time. She has a heart for giving as is evident by the fact that even in death, Hanna continues to give. She is an organ donor and thus she will live on in others that receive her gift of life. Her life was well spent and she left no adventure unchallenged.
Hanna leaves behind Ryder, her best friend; an older sister, Jonna, and brother-in-law, Kyle Manley; a younger brother, Zane Clark; mother and father, Meleia and Johnnie Clark; grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and hosts of friends.
