Judith “Judy” E. Clark, 78, Green Bay, formerly of Pulaski, passed away on Monday, December 27, 2021 after a brief illness. She was born in Milwaukee to the late Theodore and Delores (Schmidt) Bernarde. On June 6, 1970, she married Eugene Clark. He preceded her in death on June 5, 2021, one day shy of their 51st wedding anniversary.
Judith Ellen Clark was the light of her family. She shimmered with joy, laughter, goodness, kindness and love. She never missed an opportunity to be there for her family and her friends, and she was always up for an adventure. She truly modeled what family meant – loving others as your very own blood, no matter what. She was the truest friend, and she loved others extraordinarily well without expecting anything in return. She always put people at ease and made others feel like they belonged and were welcome – and she gave the very best hugs. The world felt safer and kinder and more loving with her close by. She loved Jesus with her whole heart, and she was a woman of incredibly faithful prayer and service to others. She was cherished by her family and by all who knew her.
She is survived by her children, Debbie (Steve) Wiesman, Lee Clark, Todd Clark and Stacey Clark; honorary son, Lee Wiesman; grandchildren, Zach (Christine) Wiesman, Brittany (Aaron) Ullmer, Casey Wiesman, Chelsey Wiesman, Tyler (Tara) Clark, Hayley Clark, Tehya Clark, Micah Wiesman, Zoe Wiesman and Grace Wiesman; great-grandchildren, Caden Wiesman, Aliyah Wiesman, William Ullmer, Emma Ullmer, Jace Wiesman, Nicholas Ullmer, Madelyn Ullmer and honorary great-granddaughter, Ali Winkler; siblings, Sandra (Bill) Gierach, Richard (Anna) Bernarde, Charles (Mardi) Bernarde, Susan Lederhause, Dorothy (Dale) Dahlen; sister-in-law, Sandy Bernarde; dear friends, the Gawryleski, Heinz, Dollar and Ricki families; and many other nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.

The family would like to extend a heart felt thank you to Unity Hospice for their care and compassion, a very special thank you to Judy’s friend, Kathy Dollar, who stayed with and helped care for Judy for two months.
Judy wanted to make it known how thankful and blessed she was for all the people who reached out and offered help and care. She cannot thank each of you by name, but please know that her heart was filled with love for all of you.
The family was ever so grateful for the meals and treats that were generously prepared and given to the family during this difficult time.
Finally, the family would like to thank Tim, who was a perfect stranger, but through mutual friends, was connected to Judy. He offered continuous prayer for her, and it truly gave her peace.
