In memory of
Ann Clark Buller
BULLER, Ann Clark Ruth Ann Lewis was born in Dallas on December 25, 1939 and died at home on January 11, 2017 after a long battle with uveal melanoma. She was the older daughter of Theodore and Ione Lewis and grew up with her sister Linda in University Park. She attended Highland Park High School and earned a BA in liberal arts in 1961 from the University of Texas' Plan II Honors Program. She also became a wife, mother and loving grandmother named "Mamie." The overriding priorities of her life were faith, family and friends, and she was completely devoted to them. From the hundreds of children and teenagers who flocked to her backyard Bible studies, students and missionaries needing occasional or temporary housing and young professionals and mothers searching for wise counsel to pro golfers on a travel budget, and engaged couples or high school prom committees needing a venue, she opened her home to anyone wanting to gather, stay or celebrate. She also led or facilitated various Bible studies, small groups and lay ministries at her church and served on advisory boards of several faith-based groups such as Dr. R.C. Sproul's Ligonier Ministries, Trinity Christian Academy and Dallas Theological Seminary's Hendricks Center for Christian Leadership and Cultural Engagement. Her greatest joy and privilege was praying for people, and she was known for sending just the right hand-written note at the right time. Her home is also overflowing with journals of her prayers. Ann married George Littlefield Clark in November 1963, and had three sons, George Littlefield Clark Jr., David Lewis Clark and Andrew "Andy" Field Clark. She committed her time to supporting George in his many roles, including Chairman of MBank and as a father, and they spent countless weekends hunting and fishing as they reared three Eagle Scouts, golfers and godly men. George died in 1987, and her sons each later married and gave her seven grandchildren. In August 1997, she married Arlo Floyd Buller, a custom homebuilder and gained two daughters, a son-in-law and five more grandchildren. Together, poured themselves into their families and spiritual involvements. Hundreds of people consider Ann their closest friend, and she will be dearly missed. Ann is survived by her husband, Arlo Floyd Buller, and their children and grandchildren: George Littlefield Clark and Ashley Brunson Clark of Houston and Elizabeth Ashley and George Littlefield Clark III. David Lewis Clark and Kimberly Uhr Clark of Dallas and Molly Ann, Jane Louise and Peter Wayne Clark. Andrew "Andy" Field Clark and Tonya Landers Clark of Arlington and Andrew "Drew" Field Clark Jr. and Audrey Allison Clark. Lori Buller Prior of Anchorage, Alaska, Dr. Katie Prior Green and Todd Mitchell Green, Levi Buller and Caleb Ronald Green and Ashley Elisabeth Prior. Danita Buller Fierce and Douglas "Doug" Edward Fierce of Beaumont, and Nicole Marie, Hannah Elyse and W "Brody" Fierce. She is also survived by her sister, Linda Lewis Tarrant of Hunt, and her nieces, Valerie Ione Browning and Claire Ione and Taylor Graham Browning, Dr. Natalie Blanche Tarrant and her daughter Cora Jane Sanders, and Huntley Mary Tarrant of Austin. A memorial service will be held at 1:30 p.m., Monday, January 16th at Park Cities Presbyterian Church with a reception afterward in The Fellowship Hall. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be sent to The Hendricks Center for Christian Leadership and Cultural Engagement at Dallas Theological Seminary.
