On Wednesday, April 17, 2019, Elizabeth Almand grabbed her “stepper” pedometer, unfurled her wings and headed upward to the Pearly Gates to walk the streets of gold.

Sarah Elizabeth Clark was born in the Lee area of Madison County to Jim Glover Clark and Laura “Sweet” Blair on Nov. 29, 1928. When Elizabeth was 10 years old, her mother died leaving her and her siblings ( James, Dorothy, Louise and Shirley) to be raised by their farmer father in Madison’s Mt. Olive community.

After graduating from Madison High School, she married Danny Logan. They lived in Jacksonville and had four children (Linda, Michael, Tim, and Teresa.) After divorce and the stroke of her father, she moved to Monticello in 1965 where she bought into the Isle of Rest Nursing Home and became the Administrator.

After selling Isle of Rest, she returned to her beloved Madison and bought the McNally Apartment House (renamed the Logan House.) Capitalizing on her talent for accounting, Elizabeth worked part-time as a bookkeeper for both Tommy Greene and Thed Fraleigh. She also worked as a real estate agent for various offices (i.e., Willoughby, Knoblock, Roy Milliron Century 21.) She married Felton Almand in 1969 and enjoyed life between the farm in Lee and the river in Steinhatchee for many years until Felton’s death in 2006. In her final years, Elizabeth split her time between her home in Lee and the home of her daughter, Linda, in Norman, Oklahoma.

Elizabeth was creative and prolific with the making of crafts that included ceramics, quilts, crocheted items and various other projects including an occasional “crazy hat.” She always enjoyed entering her items in local competitions and won numerous first place ribbons and awards.

Elizabeth was dedicated to the service of others and the community. She was the first woman to serve on the Farmers Home Administration Board of Directors. She also served as the treasurer of both the Madison Woman’s Club and the Mr. Olive Cemetery Fund for many years. In addition, Elizabeth volunteered with local organizations, (e.g., Hospice, Meals on Wheels) and enjoyed time with her Lee First Baptist Sunday School class and the WMU.

Elizabeth was especially proud of her work to establish the Madison County, Florida Genealogical Society and to develop Clark and Blair family books.

Elizabeth had an entrepreneur and explorer spirit. She put together a group of women investors and bought an antique shop called “Something Special,” in Steinhatchee. She also traveled around the world seeing the sights of many places (e.g., Venezuela, Holy Land, Madagascar, Greece Saudi Arabia, Ireland, Egypt, New Zealand, France and may more.)

Above all, Elizabeth loved her family and she was loved by so many who will miss “one of the sweetest ladies you will ever meet.” Elizabeth’s family, thought saddened by their loss, rejoices in knowing that she is at home with her heavenly family, and the she is happy being in the presence of her Lord and Savior.

Elizabeth is survived by her brother, James Clark, and his wife, Mary, of Madison; daughter, Linda Logan, her husband, John Terry, of Norman, OK ; son , Tim Logan, and his wife, Vicki, of Hawthorne, FL, and daughter, Teresa Logan of Jacksonville, FL. She is also survived by her grandchildren: Aubrey Logan-Terry; Callen Logan; and Timothy Logan II, his wife, Allison, and their daughter, Amelia Jane Logan. She will also be missed greatly by numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. The family will receive visitors at 10 a.m. followed by Elizabeth’s memorial service at 11 a.m. at Lee First Baptist Church on Saturday, April 27.
