A nurse, humanitarian, social activist, wife, mother, educator, and author, Rebecca Janney Timbres Clark led a long life that is a testament both to the steady grounding of her religious faith and to the strength of her irrepressible spirit. Her journey took her from a sheltered Quaker upbringing in Baltimore to war-torn regions of Europe at the end of the Great War, and to a long legacy of service in areas of poverty and deprivation in Russia and India, as well as in her own country.
Rebecca lived in that creative tension that stretches a person, pulled between a vision of Utopia and the difficult everyday, between earnest devotion and joyful abandon, between the lure of adventure and the longing for a normal life. When she was ninety-three, she was asked what had sustained her over the years. She answered, “There’s just one thing that has been of help to me all my working life. That if a thing was puzzling, to quiet down and recognize that there was an answer being given to me. If I would just be patient.”
