Iris Cole Richey Clark, 91, of Chestnut Hill, widow of former Philadelphia Mayor and U.S. Sen. Joseph S. Clark, died Monday, Sept. 17, at her home.
She married Clark in 1967. They had met in 1964 while campaigning for Genevieve Blatt, a Democrat who lost a bid that year for the Senate to Republican Sen. Hugh Scott.
Mr. Clark was elected in 1951 as the city's first Democratic mayor in 67 years. Beginning in 1957, he served two six-year terms in the Senate. He died in 1990.
