Audrey Ethel Clark, passed away peacefully at the age of 92 on August 20, 2016 surrounded by her family.  Born in Port of Spain, Trinidad to Elsie and Charles Sheppard, young Audrey left her island home and family of 12 children shortly after marrying Donald in 1943 to move to the U.S. They settled in San Clemente in 1973. Her loving husband of 66 years preceded her in 2009 but she leaves daughters Susan Clark, Laura Clark, Alicia Karpé (Keith) and Lola Clark-Tirre (Lou); grandchildren, Craig Jacobs (Angie), Nichole Brown (Tony), Michael Ramos, Jennifer Chin (Carlos), Petra Frankenreiter (Donovan), Lana-Rose Tirre, Leshelle Zyhailo (Peter), Laila van der Meulen and Livia Tirre; great-grandchildren Emilee, Grace and Claire Jacobs, Louis and Nicolas Brown, Calin and Esteban Chin, Hendrix and Ozzy Frankenreiter and Penelope Zyhailo. Audrey had a love and interest in all people and will truly will be remembered as a best friend to everyone she ever met.
