Louise Clark, peace activist behind Lafayette hillside memorial was 86

Tuesday, August 23, 2011

imageThe architect and peace activist whose hillside lot in Lafayette overlooking busy Highway 24 and a BART Station has become one of the most enduring symbols of the cost of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, died Sunday at her son’s home in Santa Rosa. She had battled lymphoma for about a year. The former ‘60s anti-war activist and widow of World War II veteran Johnson Clark began the Lafayette Hillside Memorial in 2006—with a cross representing each U. S. military casualty in the wars—along with Lafayette resident Jeff Heaton. A daughter, Candi Kaufman, tells the Contra Costa Times: “She felt that she had a mission in life to change the world, by example, one person at a time.” Obituary: Contra Costa Times
