This special tribute made in honor of:

Clarke Danielle Quarles Reese

2007 -

North Chesterfield,


National Donor Memorial Icon
Clarke Danielle Quarles Reese

Clarke Danielle Quarles Reese departed this life suddenly and unexpectedly, on Sunday, February 25th, 2007. She did not suffer, but left this physical plane dancing….the thing she loved most in this world. Though Clarke was an only child she had an enormous number of relatives and friends. Clarke has been dancing since the age of 4, joined scouts at the age of 6. Clarke enjoyed dancing, singing, acting and anything that had to do with the performing arts. She had planned on going to either Howard University or Rollins College to major in performing arts and minor in psychology

While Clarke didn’t choose donation she would have. She was a giving person. Middle school is difficult to navigate, but she had no problem because was HERSELF. So many of her former classmate have told me little nuggets of things Clarke did for or with them…lunch money, homework help, note taking, even extra gym socks. She helped anyone who had a problem. As an only child with 4 grandparents she had many toys which she always shared. Being an eye, organ, and tissue donor was a given.
