Eva Berg Clark, 76, of Clinton, died on Friday, July 17, 2020, at Siegenthaler Center with her family by her side.
She was born on July 18, 1943, in Utica, a daughter of the late Robert and Mary Jane Thomas Berg. She attended Our Lady of Lourdes School, graduated from New Hartford High School in 1961 and from Utica College in 1965.

Eva was an active member of the St. Joseph’s and St. Patrick’s Church, St. Mary’s Church and St. Anthony of Padua Church. She was also a member of the Junior League of Utica and served on several Community Boards.
She loved her family dearly and enjoyed cooking special meals for them. She was an avid tennis player and also enjoyed playing golf at the Sadaquada Golf Club. Most of all, Eva was a very devoted and doting Grandmother to her six grandchildren and Mother to her two sons. She had a special and unique bond with each one of them and was a very supportive presence in their lives. She will be greatly missed but her memory cherished.
