Very sadly, Audrey passed away at Alton Community Hospital on 5th January, aged 89.
Audrey worked as secretary to a senior surgeon in the orthopaedic clinic of Basingstoke Hospital for many years and must have felt very comfortable there as, on retirement, she joined the League of Friends. Very much a ‘people’ person, she was often to be seen at their information desk or book stall in the hospital. She was also proud to be involved with supporting patients visiting the hospital’s breast cancer clinic.

She maintained her involvement with the league of friends until it was disbanded.
Audrey and her husband Les have lived in Old Basing since the 1970s.
A celebration of Audrey Clarke’s life will take place at 12.30 on Thursday 15 February at Basingstoke Crematorium and all will be welcome to attend.
