Obituary of Sharon Clark
Sharon Jones Clark, 81, a resident of Tallahassee, Florida, passed away on May 13, 2022 after a long battle with Parkinson’s. Daughter of the late Vincent Jones and the late Beulah Jones, Sharon was born and raised in St. Albans, West Virginia. She had a lifelong love of animals, the outdoors, music, and service to others. She attended Maryville College in Tennessee, where she graduated with a BA in music and met her husband Robert. Sharon and Bob wed in 1964 and had 57 wonderful years together. Sharon moved with Bob and their two young boys to Tallahassee in 1974, where she remained ever since. She enjoyed a rich life in Tallahassee, playing the organ and the piano for a number of churches over the decades, most recently at Chris Presbyterian Church on Bannerman Road. She dedicated her free time to volunteer service. Whether it was at the Junior Museum (now the Tallahassee Museum) where she helped introduce young children to north Florida’s nature and wildlife, or at the Leon County Volunteer Center, where she placed volunteers with organizations in need, she made outsized contributions wherever she went. Later on, she volunteered to teach ongoing education at Westminster Oaks, the retirement home where she would eventually spend her last days and where she was beloved by staff. Sharon was a loving wife and mother, instilling in both her boys a lifelong love of reading and music, and a proud grandmother. She was an avid gardener and birdwatcher. She loved musicals, Asian art, exploring other cultures, and doting on the numerous dogs, cats, and birds she raised over her life. She touched so many people, and she is already missed. She is survived by her husband Bob, and her sons David and Alan. A memorial service will be at Culley’s MeadowWood Funeral Home (1737 Riggins Road) on Thursday, May 19, 2022, at 3pm. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to ECAH Animals, https://www.ecahanimals.org.
