at the age of 89 years:
Celebration of Life will be held April 29, 2023 at Fifth Avenue Seniors Center located at 170 – 5th Avenue SE, Salmon Arm, BC from 1 pm to 4 pm.
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beautiful Mom on Christmas Day, just days short of her 90th birthday.
Mom was born to Jonathan and Lillian Waters in Ashmont, Alberta and was the youngest of 8 children. She married Kenneth Clarke on April 29, 1949 and had five children.
She is survived by her children Donna (George), Dale (Trish), Ivor (Susan), Roy (Linda) and Brian (Julie). 12 grandchildren, 30 great grandchildren and 4 great great grandchildren and many nieces and nephews
Mom loved her Tuesday card games with the girls, bingo, the casino and the time she spent with her family and friends.
Mom has requested no funeral, however there will be a Celebration of Life later in the Spring. Family and friends attended the New Year’s Eve Bingo Bash at the Casino in her honor.
She was predeceased by her husband Ken, and her companion Roy Johnston, great grand-daughter Jerrica Clarke, her parents, and all her siblings.
Many thanks to the doctors and nurses who helped with her care and her Piccadilly Terrace family and friends.
In lieu of flowers please consider donations to The Salmon Arm Women’s Shelter or Shuswap Paws Animal Rescue.
