She was born November 5, 1923, in Hatton, Mo., to the late Lafayette and Willie Pearl Galbreath.
On August 5, 1942, Bertha was united in marriage to John A. Clark.

Clark Jr. (Nannie) of Boonville, James Clark (Wilma) of St. Paul, Minn., Joe Clark (Carolyn), Randy Clark, and Gilroy Clark all of Fulton. She also leaves a host of grandchildren, great-grandchildren, great-great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and friends. She is also survived by six siblings, Altha Mae of Lafayette, Bobbie, Carrie Mae, Cheatum, Nina Foster, and Barbara Sue Robinson, all of Fulton.
