Obituary of Bernadean Clark


Leak Memory Chapel

Bernadean Spear Clark, 83, a Montgomery native, passed away on the evening of January 20, 2023. She was preceded in death by her loving husband, John Clark, and parents Fred and Katie Spear. She is survived by her only daughter, Debra Pascal, son-in-law Mike Pascal, granddaughters Mandy and Haley Pascal, nieces Ginger Gandy and Nancy Myers, great-nieces Sandy Herren (Jeff), Katie Myers, great-nephews John Haggard (Katie), Paul Myers (Suzi), David Myers, great-great-nephews Sam Haggard, Ben Haggard and many loyal canine companions. Bernadean was born on April 21, 1939 at Hubbard Hospital in Montgomery. She graduated from Robert E. Lee High School in 1957, and started work at First National Bank, later First Alabama Bank, then Regions Bank, achieving the position of VP of Proof and Operations. In 1958, she married the love of her life, John, and they had 17 happy years together. In 1980, Bernadean graduated from Southwestern School of Banking at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, TX. Her many honors include ABWA Woman of the Year (1979), Financial Women International 25 Years Service Award and MACOA Senior of Achievement (2015). Upon her retirement from banking in 1995, she devoted herself to serving with the MACOA Meals on Wheels program, Pink Ladies of St. Margaret’s Hospital and then Baptist South Hospital (where she was recently recognized with a certificate of achievement for 25 years of service as a volunteer), and working in various positions at her beloved Perry Hill United Methodist Church, where she was a dedicated member for over five decades. Bernadean lived her life as the embodiment of Matthew 25:23 – “Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your Lord.” She will be dearly missed by all who knew her. A Celebration of Life Service will be held at Perry Hill United Methodist Church on Thursday, January 26, 2023 at 3 p.m. with Rev. Mark Osgood officiating. Visitation will take place at Perry Hill prior to the service from 1 to 3 p.m. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made in memory of Bernadean Clark to Perry Hill United Methodist Church. Fond memories and expressions of sympathy may be shared at for the Clark family.
