The death is announced of Mrs Catherine Amelia Stewart Clark, of the Vicarage, Mentone. Mrs Clark was born in Dunedin, New Zealand, and was the eldest daughter of the late Mr Charles Hope, of Goldsborough, Mort, and Co, Sydney. She was a direct descendant of Rev. Samuel Marsden, whose name is closely connected with early missionary work, and with the foundation of the wool industry in Australia. Mrs Clark is survived by her husband, Rev C. J. H. Clark, of St Augustine's Church of England, Mentone, and by her 3 children, Chaplain Russell Clark, RAAF, Mr Manning Clark, and Miss Hope Clark. She will long be remembered in the parishes of St John's, Ashfield, Sydney; Philip Island, Belgrave, and Mentone. After a memorial service in St Augustine's Church, Mentone, at 2pm today, conducted by Archdeacon Hancock, Archbishop Booth will officiate at the burial service in Box Hill Cemetery. Funeral arrangements are in the hands of A. A. Sleight.
