European Broadcasting Union producer, editorial assistant, 65, nurtured her children to 'become the best versions of themselves' Sharon Eleanor Clark, nee Meier, (age 65) of Bethesda, MD, Ridgewood, NJ, and New York, NY passed away at home on Saturday, October 16, 2021 after bravely living with cancer for 8 years. Loving mother of Andrew (Taylor) Clark, Courtney (James) Morrison, and Justin Clark. Beloved grandmother of William and Louis. Cherished sister of Renee Meier (Paul Frediani), Cathy Meier, and Marina (Douglas) Taylor. Much loved by her sister-in-law, Marilyn Clark, and her brother-in-law, David Clark. Dear aunt of Elizabeth Clark (Lauren Pomerantz), David Clark, Jerome Derenzo (Tara), Francesco Gallo, Ludovico Gallo, and Eleanor Taylor. Loved wife of 40 years to Warren Clark. Sharon was born in Bethesda, Maryland on April 22, 1956 to Louis and Eleonora Meier. Daughter to a US Navy Captain, Sharon and her sisters spent several years of their childhood in Italy and traveling the globe. She spoke Italian and was proud of her Italian heritage. She graduated from Stone Ridge in 1974 and Mount Holyoke College in 1978. After college, she spent several years in New York City working as a producer at the European Broadcasting Union. With her young family, Sharon moved to Ridgewood, NJ in 1988. Heartbroken is the beloved family she leaves behind. She was as nurturing and selfless a mother as anyone could hope for. Ever present at sports, school, and theater, Sharon recognized the individuality of each of her children and helped them become the best versions of themselves. Recently, she joyfully became Nonna to her two young grandchildren. She loved getting down on the floor to play with, read to, and inspire them. Ever the athlete, she was an avid golfer and paddle tennis player. Serving as president of the Ridgewood Baseball Association and chair of the Women's Golf Committee at Ridgewood Country Club, Sharon dazzled us with her organization, efficiency, and commitment. Most recently, she worked as editorial assistant to her late mother-in-law, Mary Higgins Clark. Through all the phases of her life, Sharon easily made lifelong friends. Her warmth, elegance, and intelligence invited people and put them instantly at ease. She will be greatly missed by friends of 1, 5, 10, 20, and 50 years. In her final weeks, the outpouring of love from people who treasured her friendship was inspiring. A wake will be held on Tuesday, October 19th, from 4 to 8pm at Feeney Funeral Home in Ridgewood, NJ. A funeral Mass open to all will be held on Wednesday, October 20th, at 10am at Our Lady of Mount Carmel in Ridgewood, NJ. The mass will also be available by live stream. In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to Catholic Charities of New York or ocular melanoma research at Memorial Sloane Kettering.

I am so saddened by this loss. I am glad I was able to meet and spend time with Nonna and to watch her love on Louis. She will be greatly missed and will always be with you, so proud at what a great mother you are Courtney. Love you and praying for all of you in the Morrison and Clark family.
