She returned to Eugene to rejoin the rest of her family, where she started her career in the U of O Admissions Office.

Clark, Betty  
Betty J. Clark August 10, 1927 - April 22, 2015 Betty J. Clark a long-time resident of Eugene, retired educator and Duck Fan, died on Earth Day, April 22, 2015. Born in Portland on August 10, 1927, Betty was the only child of Frank and Marjorie Clark and spent her childhood growing up in Cascade Locks. As a youth, Betty spent time working with her parents in the family business, the Oregon landmark, "CharBurger". Throughout her life Betty volunteered her time, traveled the world, enjoyed sailing and the stock market, and continued to educate herself. She supported her family and friends with her incredible generosity and genuine interest in subjects that were of importance to those around her. For Betty, education was priority, hence her dedication to being first a teacher and then a school psychologist for more than 45 years. Betty was a trail blazer and independent women until the day she died. Her business card read, "Live the Moments," and that she did. Betty loved animals - especially dogs, and she supported many animal focused organizations. Betty was a long time member of the Eugene Yacht Club, and the Steelheaders. She loved spending time fishing in Alaska; especially the year she brought home a 52 lb King Salmon! She was remarkably strong, prioritizing regular exercise, beating breast cancer and keeping pancreatic cancer in check by tolerating a year's worth of Chemo --with never a single complaint. Betty leaves behind her beloved cousins in Tacoma, Frank and Carrie, John and Pam, Carol and Mike and their children. Betty made annual trips to Tacoma, the last few years on Amtrak, to visit and keep tabs on everyone. She loved to feast on the family specialty, spaghetti and would often bring fresh spaghetti sauce back to Eugene to share. Betty hosted their reciprocal trips to Eugene at her wonderful home. The hours they spent discussing world events, politics, analyzing the stock market, watching sports and trying to find the next best real-estate deal will be forever cherished. Betty also leaves behind her "Eugene Family", a hodgepodge of friends from every generation who share a connection that transcends being related. Betty loved and was loved, she will be missed greatly. She leaves behind a legacy of her steadfast support of women and education through the Betty Clark Memorial Scholarship. Donations to this fund can be made at Selco in Eugene. A small private celebration of life will be held to remember and acknowledge a life well lived.
