    I knew Sallye at the end of her life when my husband got sick. She was a beautiful and sweet lady. She always smiled. I am so very sorry for your loss.

    I never met Mrs. Clark but mutual friends of ours spoke highly of her as an individual and
    Christian. Prayers for the family as they grieve
    the loss of their loved one.

    Dear Robert Clark and family, I am so sorry for your loss of your beloved, Sally Russell Clark. She was an wonderful person and a dynamic textiles & clothing instructor with special emphasis in historic costume and fashion design at Western Kentucky University. When I was enrolled in her classes, she was a single lady; therefore, when she met a “Mr. Clark” and the two got married, I was delighted for her. I know the two of you had a good life together. So very glad that she had you to be by her side to the end. Remember, she will be with you always in spirit and you will be together through the eternities. In friendship and love for an individual who had much positive influence on the people whose lives she touched. Judy E. Russell

    Dr. Clark had a passion for teaching as well as her family and friends. She was a wonderful advisor to this Graduate Assistant.

    Dr. Sallye Clark was my favorite professor at WKU and pretty much my favorite teacher of all time. I loved her clever wit and gentle encouragement, and I’ll always remember her fondly. Best wishes to her family and close friends.
