Memorials: Should friends desire, remembrances in memory of Quanita may be given to a charity of choice or the N. Reed Clark Memorial Scholarship, Sam Houston State University Foundation, Box 2537, Huntsville, Texas 77341. Quanita was born in Glen Rose to Opal and Thomas Gosdin. In 1949 she graduated from Cleburne High School, where she was a cheerleader. Upon graduating, Quanita married her high school sweetheart and the love of her life, Shirley Reed Clark Jr., on Sept 4, 1952. Soon after, the two set off for Texas A&M University where Quanita worked at the campus registrar's office while Shirley attended school as a member of the Aggie Corps of Cadets. After graduating from A&M, Quanita and Shirley spent two years in El Paso at Fort Bliss, where a daughter was born and died at birth. In 1955, they returned to Fort Worth and began a wonderful journey of over 60 years contributing to the community. Quanita was a faithful member of Arborlawn United Methodist Church for over 40 years. She and Shirley were members of Shady Oaks Country Club, the Petroleum Club of Fort Worth, the Bankers Wives Club and Ridglea Country Club, where they were members for 50 years. One of Quanita's greatest loves and talents was found on the golf course, where she took her golf seriously. She knew all the rules and played fast. Quanita began playing golf in her early 30s, and after years of practice reached a handicap of 12. She was instrumental in starting the Junior Golf Program at Ridglea Ccountry Club. QC, as she was so fondly called, was a driving force and the longest-serving member of the Ladies Golf Association, serving as president and earning the Ladies Championship Award twice and the Mr. & Mrs. Golf Championship once with her husband, Shirley. In 2014, Quanita's dedication to golf culminated in the establishment of the LGA "Q" award at Ridglea. "This award is presented to a LGA member who exhibits a balance between character and spirit for the good of the game." Quanita had a large group of dear friends in Fort Worth with whom she enjoyed playing bridge, gin rummy and golf. Yet, Quanita's greatest joy in life was spending time with her loving husband, son and grandchildren, especially savoring the golf rounds spent with them. Quanita was preceded in death by her parents; brother, Tommy Gosdin; sister, Dixie Schmidt; and grandson, Nelson Reed Clark. Survivors: Quanita is survived by her husband of 62 years, Shirley Reed Clark Jr.; son, Ronald Reed Clark and wife, Julie Nelson Clark; granddaughter, Kelly Ann Clark; sister-in-law, Gail Clark Keasler and husband, Don, and their family; sister, Geraldine Ingle and family; and brother, Donald Wayne Gosdin and family.
