The Saratogian (Saratoga, NY) - - OBITUARIES -

Gan­sevoort, NY - On Wed­nes­day, June 19th, 2019, Carol Eggleston Clark Car­ney flew off with the an­gels and left her strug­gling body be­hind. She was born in Saratoga Springs on June 27th, 1940 to El­iz­a­beth Wil­helm Eggleston and Percy Eggleston. She grad­u­ated from Saratoga Springs High School in 1958 with her best friend Peggy De­lay and her posse of girl­friends whom she still stayed in touch with. She mar­ried her first hus­band Clyde Clark in 1959 and they lived on Cres­cent Av­enue rais­ing their chil­dren un­til his pass­ing in 1979. For many years, she sat at the desk at Step­ping Star Stu­dio where she en­joyed chat­ting with the par­ents, hand­ing out lol­lipops, and touch­ing the lives of many of the Star dancers. Carol was blessed to meet Steven Car­ney and they were mar­ried in 1986. They spent many happy years to­gether, both here in New York and on the west coast of Florida. She was es­pe­cially proud of their new home in St. Peters­burgh, and she had fun re­dec­o­rat­ing it this past win­ter. How­ever, Carol’s great­est joy and source of pride was her fam­ily. She was most happy on hot summer days when she was sur­rounded by her fam­ily at her pool, ev­ery­one dangling in inner tubes. For a non-swim­mer, she sure did love the wa­ter and she cher­ished her time at the beach or sit­ting on a bal­cony over­look­ing the Gulf. She also spent many hours cheer­ing on her grand­chil­dren from the side­lines, sit­ting in an au­di­to­rium watch­ing them per­form or brag­ging about them to whomever would lis­ten. She was af­fec­tion­ately re­ferred to as Granny, not only by her own grand­chil­dren, but many of their friends as well. Carol was pre­de­ceased by her par­ents, her first hus­band Clyde Clark and their new­born daugh­ter Jac­que­line. Left to miss her greatly but cher­ish her mem­ory are her beloved hus­band Steven Car­ney, her son Scott Clark (Chris­tine), her daugh­ter Lau­rie Clark Gre­gorek (Stephen), and her sis­ters Gail Pit­ney (Bill), and Lynn Eggleston. She also leaves be­hind her step­son Steven Car­ney (Emily), her step­daugh­ter Lila Car­ney (Fabi­ano Ia­cusso) and her much adored grand­chil­dren: Skyler, Jared and Sid­ney Gre­gorek, Leah Baratz, and Valentina, Do­minick and Ca­rina Ia­cusso. Lastly, left with heavy hearts are Carol’s nieces and neph­ews who she thought the world of: Meg Pit­ney Gil­gal­lon, Kate Pit­ney Gaba, David Pit­ney and Daniel Eggleston. At Carol’s re­quest there will be no ser­vices. If you wish, feel free to do­nate to a char­ity of your choice in her mem­ory. “I love you to the moon and back.” Ar­range­ments are be­ing han­dled by the Wil­liam J.
