Monica Pauline Clark passed away January 6, 2018 after a lengthy battle with cancer. Monica was born in Burlingame, CA on June 7, 1965 to Elroy and Dorothy Rusch, who preceded her in death. Monica attended Mills High School graduating in 1983 and later graduated from San Francisco State University in 1987, majoring in Human Resources.
With a smile that could light up a city Monica made everyone around her feel comfortable and always had something nice to say about people she met, even Dodger fans. Family was also very important to Monica. She is survived by her husband of 24 years, Jay, and daughter Abbey. In addition Monica is survived by many cousins including Beth McQuaid, Thailand, and Adam Chaloeicheep, Brooklyn, father-in-law Garry Clark, brother and sister-in-law Scott and Angela Clark and nieces Michelle, Emma, and Rebecca Clark, England.
Monica was a lover of animals having had cats and dogs her entire life. Monica is also survived by her dog Misty; three cats Bugsy, Cooper, and Mr. Whiskers; and two frogs Romeo and Juliet.
A lifelong fan of the San Francisco Giants Monica was memorably sitting in the upper deck at Game 3 of the 1989 World Series when the earthquake hit. Her most favorite experience was being an usher for the Giants during the 1991 and 1992 seasons at Candlestick Park. She later cheered them on from home during their World Series victories in 2010, 2012, and 2014.
A lover of travel, Monica visited Hawaii, Canada, Greece, Paris, the United Kingdom, and Jamaica during her life. As someone who loved to take pictures Monica had many pictures from her trips showing the fun she had with her friends and family during the excursions.
In lieu of flowers we ask that donations be made in Monica’s name to Hospice of the East Bay.
