HAMBURG - Fay J. Clark Uffalussy, 79, of Lenhartsville, passed away peacefully with her husband by her side on Wednesday (Nov. 14, 2012) at Berks Heim Nursing Home, Reading, after a six-year struggle with Alzheimer's.
The Guest Book is expired.
Fay was born Aug. 9, 1933, in Bradford, the daughter of the late Ralph and Signe Watson. She resided in Rixford, and was a 1951 graduate of Otto High School in Duke Center.
As a youngster, she enjoyed roller skating, bowling and cards. Upon graduation, she was employed with South Penn Oil Co. in Bradford, and later Pennzoil Co., Oil City. After the birth of her first son, she spent the next 25 years as a devoted wife and mother. Fay was so proud of her three sons, all serving in the U.S. Air Force at the same time. She worked for Wright's Knitwear in Hamburg for several years until her retirement. Fay woke up every day with a big smile and a new outlook on life as if it was a new beginning. Even though in the later stages of Alzheimer's, her small world was always getting smaller, she was still capable of a smile and a wink of the eye.
Fay was married to Charles L. Clark from June 30, 1956, until 1981. The family lived in Oil City and Pleasantville for 18 years before moving to Hamburg in 1974. On Dec. 27, 1987, Fay married Edmund Uffalussy of Lenhartsville/Virginville, Pa. For the next 25 years, they enjoyed fishing, boating, and motorcycling together.
Fay is survived by her husband, Edmund A. Uffalussy; Charles Clark; and three sons, Todd (Charla) Clark of Plattsmouth, Neb.; Shawn Clark of Grants Pass, Ore.; and Timothy Clark (Danielle) of Chantilly, Va. She is also survived by her sister, Ruth (Gene) Kish of Oil City; and several cousins, nephews and nieces.
