Barbara Uttal Weston Clark, born to Robert and Ida Uttal on July 19, 1927 in NYC, passed away on January 7, 2020 in Hilton Head, SC, 92.
She married Myron (Mike) Weston in 1946 and together they opened Uttal’s Luggage and Leather Goods in Yonkers, NY. They settled in Mt. Vernon, NY, where she had grown up and graduated from Davis High School. When their children were out of college, they sold the store, bought an RV and set off to see the country, ending up in Mexico. They came back, sold the house, and moved to the Chapala/Ajijic area in Mexico, where she lived for next 24 years.
She joined fellow expat Theodore (Ted) Clark and opened Barbara's Bazaar, a consignment store in Ajijic. After Ted moved back to the US and Mike passed away, she sold the store and left for Florida. Barbara's Bazaar continues to thrive in Ajijic. Soon after arriving in Florida, Barbara married Ted Clark, they enjoyed 25 years together, moving to Hilton Head, SC to be near her sister, Maxine.
Barbara is survived by her husband, Ted; her children: Steven (Cherie) Weston, Marian Weston (Bill Aghassi), and Amy-Jo Gamon; four loving grandchildren: Alec Weston, Rachel Aghassi, Eli Aghassi (Hannah Cary), and Jeff (Kelley) Gamon, and four adorable great-grandchildren: Jude, Rainey, Jack, and Benny; her sister Maxine Uttal and sisters-in-law Ellie Uttal and Lee Hardy; nephews and nieces, many cherished cousins, and other beloved family and friends. Predeceased by her first husband and brother William Uttal.
