Lemco Drenne Clark, of Simpsonville, was born on May 4, 1983, in Clinton to Lucia N. Clark and Bennie Wicker. Lemco was lovingly known to most of us by “Nina.”

Nina entered into Eternal Rest on Sunday, March 3, 2019, at the Greenville Health System in Greenville.

She received her formal education in the public schools of Laurens County and was a graduate of Clinton High School, District 56, Class of 2001. Following high school, Nina completed additional studies at Greenville Technical College.

Nina was most recently employed by the Draxlmaier Group in Spartanburg.

As a child, Nina spent much of her time around her Grandmother Alma and learned to cook at a young age, which was one of her many hobbies. She also loved traveling, shopping, being pampered and trying new foods at various restaurants. She was also a very loving and dedicated mother to her two children. Nina was also known for her intelligence and quickness to respond with a “sharp tongue” when she thought it was necessary.

Austin; one daughter, Avery Jalia Austin of the home; two brothers, Glenis J.
