"The Roanoke Leader" - March 2, 1966:

Mrs. Clack, Widow of Blind Doctor Dies at Age 85.

The widow of the late Dr. James Thomas Clack, Randolph County's famed blind physician, Mrs. Sara Theresa Clack of Roanoke Route 4, passed away in the Randolph County Hospital at 6:30 Sunday morning, February 27. She was 85 years of age.
Mrs. Clack was a woman who realized true greatness in this life according to Biblical standards of himble, self-sacrificing service to others. When Dr. Tom's eyesight failed at the beginning of his medical career, "Miss Resa" enabled him to continue in his chosed profession by becoming his "eyes". She was with him wherever he went as they successfully filled te role of old-time family physician over a wide area for many years while living in Wadley.
The death of Dr. Clack at the age of 80 occurred on August 23, 1956. With Mrs. Clack's help, he was not only a beloved physician but a leader in church, business, and civic affairs. Their story came to the attention of the nation and world in September, 1940 when they went to New York City to appear on Bob Ripley's "Believe It or Not" network radio program.
Mrs. Clack is survived by two sisters, Mrs. Bessie Chewning of Texas, and Mrs. Thyra Swint of Nashville, Tennesssee, and by several nieces and nephews.
A large crowd of friends paid their last respects to "Miss Resa" at funeral services conducted at New Hope Christian Church in Chambers County this Tuesday morning at 10:30. Officiating ministers were the Rev. Olin Sheppard, pastor, Dr. A. R. Van Cleave, and Dr. Jesse H. Dollar, with burial in the church cemetery.
Quattlebaum's Brown Service Funeral Home was in charge of arrangements.
