Pat was born in Worksop, England to Florence and Fred Clarke.  
She came to America in 1952 to join the circus working a group of 16 wild animals in the ring at one time and eventually making it into the Circus Hall of Fame. After retiring from the circus, Pat moved to Rutherford County in 1978 where she received her LPN degree from Isothermal Community College. She also worked as a veterinary assistant and eventually retired from Rutherford County Schools as an assistant. Pat was an accomplished author of fiction and poetry writing several books in both genres.

Myra & Family,
My sincere condolences on the the passing of Pat. She was such an interesting person, having done so many fascinating things during her life. It was a pleasure getting to know her a little while we both worked at Dunbar Elementary. I pray for peace and comfort for all you and strength for the coming days.

May your special memories bring you comfort. Pat was an interesting lady. I did not know a lot about her but she was an addition to our community and we will miss her. She always had a friendly smile. God bless you as you continue your life without her. She will always be in your memory.
