Sharon Ann Clark, age 63, of West Concord Massachusetts, formerly of Sudbury and Acton, died suddenly in her sleep on Thursday, January 9th at her home. Born on June 26, 1956 in Boston, Massachusetts, she is survived by her father, Richard C. B. (Rik) Clark and her stepmother, Alexandra (Sandy) Clark of Osterville, Massachusetts, her Sister, Susan Clark McMahon, of Acton and her brother, Ted Clark and his wife, Robin, of Needham. Sharon was predeceased by her mother, Josephine Carlson (Jo) Clark in 2015.
Sharon graduated from Wellesley High School in 1974, received her bachelor's degree in Business Administration from the University of New Hampshire in 1978, and earned her Masters in Business Administration from Babson College. She worked for many years with Nolan Norton Consulting which later became part of KPMG, was Manager of Member services at the Thoreau Club in Concord, and most recently, she was an Outreach Coordinator at The Concord Council on Aging. Sharon was particularly fulfilled in her recent position at the COA where she coordinated services for seniors. Her knowledge, caring manner, and sense of humor made her a favorite among clients and colleagues.
Sharon was best known in her favorite role as "Auntie" by her family and especially her niece and nephews: Amanda Susan Clark, Age 25 of Needham, Conner Allen Clark, Age 25 of Waltham, and Devin Allen McMahon, Age 22 of Acton. Her happiest times were celebrating their accomplishments at work, on stage, on the playing field, in the animal hospital or in school. In her niece and nephews' youngest days, Sharon was thrilled to join them on trips to Story Land in Glen, NH, work on projects at "Plaster Funtime" or teach them some cool craft or game. "Auntie" was always there for them. Sharon was also "Auntie" to the families of her cousins and closest friends, always remembering birthdays and special occasions with a card or visit.
Sharon was a devoted daughter and a source of great joy to her Mother. Together, they shared a special love of family and family traditions, including annual trips to Ogunquit where they explored the beautiful Maine coast and walked the Marginal Way. With a love of Christmas and giving, Sharon enjoyed the Festival of Trees in Concord and always looked forward to the Osterville Christmas Stroll with Rik and Sandy.
Sharon will be remembered as an avid Boston sports fan with a particular affinity for the Brady led Patriots, the Bruins, and the Red Sox. Our fondest memories include watching Pats and Bruins games and cheering on the Sox at Fenway. Sharon will be especially missed on Pan Mass Challenge weekend in August. For 25 years, she volunteered and was an enthusiastic member of our family team, Rik's Riders.
Please remember Sharon by spending quality time with those closest to you.
Details of a memorial celebration of her life will be provided at a later date.
