Mrs. Clarke dies at Hotel Chamberlin
Funeral services of well-known lady will occur from St. John’s this afternoon
Following an illness of several weeks, Mrs. Sallie Whitfield Clarke, a well-known woman of Hampton, died in the Hotel Chamberlin, at 2 o’clock yesterday morning. Mrs. Clarke was visiting her daughter, Mrs. Clarence Kenyon, in New York, and had started to return to her home here, when she became seriously ill and reaching Old Point, secured apartments in the Chamberlin. She was a sufferer from an incurable disease and during the past week her death had been expected by the members of her family.
Born in Suffolk fifty-nine years ago, Mrs. Clarke spent much of her young life in that city, but for the past twenty-three years she had made her home here. She was a daughter of the late Mr. John W. Keeling and granddaughter of the distinguished deceased Bishop, Rev. William Keeling, Bishop of Virginia. Two daughters survive, Mrs. Harry H. Kimberly of this city, and Mrs. Clarence Kenyon, of New York.
