Clark, Gray Proctor  
Gray Proctor Clark Gray Proctor Clark (Mrs. William Grimes Clark III), died in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, on Saturday, June 25, 2016, after a brief illness. She was 81 years old, and her children were by her side. Known to all as "Gray," she was born in Asheville, North Carolina, and raised in nearby Marion, the middle of three girls. She completed high school and junior college at St. Mary's School in Raleigh. There she was honored to be chosen for the May Court and distinguished herself in both tennis and field hockey, which she continued to play at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill, graduating there in 1958. She was a member of the Chi Omega sorority. While a student at Chapel Hill, she met fellow Tar Heel Bill "Dubba" Clark from Tarboro, North Carolina, and the two were married for 52 years until Bill's death in 2008. They made Tarboro their home, raising two children, a few horses, and many dogs along the way. A running joke in the family was an ardent wish "to come back as one of Gray's dogs," guaranteeing as it would be a life of pampering and affection. Gray's love of animals and of nature reflected abundantly in her life, from her love of Lake Tahoma in the North Carolina mountains, to summers in Nags Head, to her far-flung travels out West and beyond. Gray and Bill first went to Africa on safari in 1968 and returned several times, ultimately celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary there with a retinue of children, grandchildren, and cousins. At home, Gray's stylish house and beautifully tended garden were a source of joy and sharing. She loved flowers and not only arranged them exquisitely but rendered them skillfully in watercolor. Truly she was a rare and marvelous combination of artist, athlete, tomboy, Southern belle, and, as her friends would say only half-jokingly, saint. Devoted wife, mother, grandmother, and gracious hostess, she treated all and sundry with dignity and respect. She worked quietly and tirelessly for her community and gave selflessly to her family and friends. A longtime member of Calvary Episcopal Church in Tarboro, Gray did everything there from coaching basketball to leading the vestry. Former Calvary rector and renowned Bishop John Shelby Spong, recalling the turbulent 1960s Tarboro years in his autobiography Here I Stand, wrote, "The graceful embrace offered to me by Gray Clark was always one of the most healing gifts I have ever received." She is survived by daughter and son-in-law, Gray Clark Stoughton and husband Thomas Stoughton; son and daughter-in-law William Grimes Clark IV and wife Tiffany; grandchildren Thomas Stoughton Jr., Eliza Gray Stoughton, Miller Clark, Grimes Clark V; and sister, Sara Ann Turner. In addition to her husband, her sister Frances Proctor preceded her in death. Memorials in Gray's honor may be made to Calvary Episcopal Church in Tarboro, Tarboro Community Outreach, UNC Lineberger Cancer Hospital, or St. Mary's School in Raleigh. Services will be held on Wednesday, June 29, at 11 am, Calvary Episcopal Church in Tarboro. There will be a visitation at the Clark home at 3306 North Main Street, on Tuesday, June 28th from 5:00 to 7:00PM Arrangements have been entrusted to Carlisle Funeral Home, Inc., of Tarboro.
