Mae A. (Clark) DeBord, age 92 of Williamsport, IN, formerly of West Lebanon, IN, died on Tuesday, December 12, 2017 at St. Vincent Hospital in Indianapolis. Mae was born on February 12, 1925 in Harvey, IL to Orval G. and Nellie M. Clark. Educated in both Illinois and Indiana schools, she graduated in Indiana and later studied art at the University of Illinois. On March 29, 1942 she married Kenneth Wendell DeBord in Williamsport, IN. Mae worked for 19 years at the Citizens State Bank in Williamsport, retiring in 1986.

She served for 12 years on the Pike Township West Lebanon Library Board. Mae was an avid reader, talented artist and seasoned cook.
