Nancy Persing Clark
1931 - 2018
LENOX, Mass. - Nancy Persing Clark, 86, died at Berkshire Medical Center in Pittsfield, Mass., on April 28, 2018, after a sudden illness.
Nancy grew up in West Stockbridge, Mass., the only daughter, born Dec. 12, 1931, to Dr. William E. and Dorothy (Nichols) Persing. She was proud to be "Doc Persing's daughter."
She was predeceased by her husband, Russell Callender Clark Sr.; her parents; her brother, Rev. William Persing; and her brother, John Persing.
When Nancy was in her 40s, she worked, and was raising her two teenage children. It was at that time that she met Russ Clark, of Stockbridge, Mass. Russ was widowed with three teenagers and a toddler. They fell in love, and suddenly Nancy's children of two teens, turned into five teens and a toddler! Who does that?
Nancy Clark does that!
Russ became the love of her life. Their devotion and respect for each other was evident to all. Together they went on many trips, including winters in Myrtle Beach.
Nancy was a woman of great pride and integrity. An avid reader, she was a wealth of information and her vocabulary was vast. Her love for country décor was evident and in abundance in the log home that she and Russ built on Smith Road in West Stockbridge. She loved to decorate and enjoyed her flowerboxes and plants on her country porch. When you entered her home, the feeling was comforting and inviting.
Nancy is survived by her six children:
Heather (Christopher) Biernacki, of Lenox, Mass., Gregory (Aimee) Black, of Pittsfield, Mass., Russell Jr. (Nancy) Clark, of Sanford, Keith Clark, of Waterville; Linda (Brian) Dutil, of Waterville; and Roberta (Brett) Clark, of Housatonic, Mass.
She is survived by 15 grandchildren: Melanie (James Hurley)
MacLean, Ashley (John) Crockwell, Nicholas (Katie) Dutil, Jeffrey Dutil, Kathryn (Thomas) Hersom, Tom (Christina) Clark, Elaine Clark, Alistair Black, Cameron Black, Amanda Clark, Madison Clark,
Autumn Biernacki, Avery
Biernacki, Emberly Black, Arabella Black. Nancy is also survived by 12 great-grandchildren.
Services were held Sunday, May 6 at the Lenox Methodist Church in Lenox, Mass. Burial followed at the West Stockbridge Cemetery.
