CLARK, Sally Jasmine

CLARK, Sally Jasmine, nee Harris

Sally Jasmine Clark lived on a farm in Victoria’s south-west until her retirement with her husband Peter Gratton Clark (1934-2013) to Port Fairy in 1997.

Peter Clark was a boarder at Geelong College as was Sally’s grandfather, Richard John Hensley (1871-1956), and her brother, Ronald John Harris (1942-1979). Peter and Sally had many happy years together in Port Fairy before Peter's death.

Sally was educated at Morongo, Geelong, where she boarded from 1946 until she matriculated in 1952. In her Matriculation year Sally became a Deputy Prefect, she was on the Boarding House Committee, Captain of Roslyn and was a member of the Lucernian Committee. She had been awarded House Colours in 1950, and Baseball and Tennis Colours in 1951. Later she completed a Bachelor of Social Science from Deakin University.

She managed tourism for the City of Warrnambool for almost twenty years including three years as executive officer of Shipwreck Coast Tourism and another two years as manager of the city’s Performing Arts Centre.

She has also written a handbook 'How to Die Happy' which has proved valuable as a reference for the one inevitable thing about life that we never seem to prepare for: death.
