Rushden Echo, 27th December 1918, transcribed by Kay Collins
Mrs Clark

We regret to report that the death took place rather unexpectedly on Saturday last of Mrs Clark, wife of Mr Thomas Clark, of Stanwick. Deceased was born at Stanwick on January 1st, 1843, and passed away just a few days short of her 76th birthday. She leaves a husband and five children to mourn their loss. The eldest son lives at Petone, New Zealand, and the eldest daughter resides at Fenny Stratford, Buckinghamshire, the other three children living at Stanwick.

The late Mrs Clark had a life-long connection with the Baptist Church at Stanwick, being a scholar in the Sunday school in her young days, and afterwards being a teacher, a position which she held as recently as two years ago. Mr and Mrs Clark, were married at the Ringstead Baptist church on October 15th, 1868, by the Rev W Kitchen, and celebrated their golden wedding in October of this year. The deceased lady and her husband were baptised and received into fellowship at the Stanwick Baptists Church at the same time, 46 years ago, by the Rev J T Bristow, who was at that time pastor of the church, and Mr Clark has been a deacon of the church for 38 years. The late Mrs Clark was held in the highest esteem in the village, and she will be greatly missed in the Baptist cause and in all movements. The funeral took place yesterday (Thursday), and impressive service being held at the Baptist Church.
