Obituary of Amy H. Clark
Amy Hilseberg Clark passed away at her home in Plymouth Meeting, PA on Saturday, September 16, 2017 after a nine month battle with cancer. She was 37 years old. Amy leaves behind her children, Alexa (8), Brendan (5) and Charlie (2), and her husband Matt. She is survived by her parents, Rick and Sue Hilseberg.
Amy was born in Doylestown, PA on June 11, 1980. As a baby, her family moved to California where she lived until graduation from Diamond Bar High School in 1998. Amy loved southern California and dreamed of one day returning to the sunshine and beautiful weather that graced her childhood.
After high school, Amy moved east to attend Villanova University where she earned a BA in Political Science in 2002. Amy's time at Villanova is marked by the lifetime friendships she made. She was active in the Greek community as a member of Alpha Chi Omega and served as the Panhellenic Rush Chair.
Post-graduation, Amy met the love of her life, Matt. The two knew from the moment they met that they wanted to be together. They began dating in July of 2003 and were married 2 years to the day of their first date on July 18, 2005. Amy and Matt enjoyed 12 years of marriage filled with love and laughter until her death.
Amy's true calling in life came in September of 2009 when Amy and Matt welcomed their first child, Alexa. Amy was born to be a mother. Amy and Matt were blessed again in February 2012 when they had Brendan and again in May of 2015 when Charlie completed their family. From the moment that each of her children were born, Amy made sure that they had the best of everything. She was the kind of mother who was at every gymnastics class, every golf lesson and every choral concert. Amy was a quintessential homeroom mom who took great pride in throwing amazing class parties. She loved her children more than they will ever be able to comprehend. Alexa, Brendan and Charlie are blessed to have had such a great mother even if it was for a short period of time.
Amy was an amazing friend to so many. She was always willing to put more into a friendship than she wanted to take from it. Amy was an only child, but throughout her lifetime she collected so many people whom she considered to be her sisters and brothers.
To continue Amy's passion for helping others, a foundation has been established in her honor. Amy's Yard Sale will raise money to assist families who find themselves affected by cancer. The Clark family requests that donations be sent to Amy's Yard Sale (1950 Butler Pike #178, Conshohocken, PA 19428) in lieu of flowers.
