Clare passed away peacefully at home with family by her side on January 5, 2014 after a courageous battle with ovarian cancer at the age of 57 years.
Clare is predeceased by her father Charles Marshall and mother Betty Marshall (Chase, BC) and is lovingly

Mom spent her childhood years in Vancouver, Williams Lake and finally Chase where she graduated from high school. In 1982 she moved to Revelstoke where she raised her two daughters. In 2000, Mom and Wayne moved to Salmon Arm.
Mom loved to spend time travelling with Wayne in their RV and during the summer of 2013 together
they took the ‘trip of their lifetime’ to the Grand Canyon. Mom also enjoyed quilting, sewing, taking her sailboat out on Shuswap Lake, and most of all, spending time with her family. Mom experienced her ‘perfect day’ on November 16, 2013 when she wed her best friend, Wayne McGill in the presence of her family.
Mom will forever be remembered as a loving mother, wife and Nana and a dedicated colleague.

In lieu of flowers, donations to the Shuswap Hospital Foundation would be appreciated.
Mom’s service will be held at St. John’s Anglican Church in Salmon Arm on Friday, January 10, 2014
at 2:00 p.m.


  1. We were very shocked to hear of Clairs passing. We both have fond memories and are thinking of you all at this sad time. Sorry we missed the funeral but you are in our prayers. Sincerly Anne

  2. For Wayne and Family,

    So sorry to hear that Clare passed away. Clare was a delight to work with when we were all at Vic Van Isle in Revelstoke and I am glad that I got to know her a little bit. Her smile was contagious and always had a kind word for her associates (well most of them). Not aware of Clare’s illness, I was shocked to hear she was gone. Such a young age too. Just to let you know you are all in my prayers and that Clare was loved by many.

    Take care,
    Ron Hardie

  3. We both have our very own special memories of Clare. They go way back to a long ago Grad Party for Scott, and for Glenys she is reminded what a kind soul Clare was each time she comes across Clare’s niece Sarah. We have lost a great and wonderful woman and our thoughts are with all her family and friends.

    Glenys and Scott

  4. Dear Clare,
    I only knew you for a short time, but in that time you became a friend. I was lucky to have known you, you touched my life. I kept meaning to send you an email or a quick call in the last month but I didn’t, always saying oh I’ll do it tomorrow…. I’m so sorry.
    Clare you were so strong and just such a good person, I guess I kept thinking nothing could happen to you!
    I don’t get close to many people, but with you I did, you were (and still are) someone special.
    Goodbye Clare I will miss you.
    Love Maaike

    Wayne, Erin and Annie,(&family)

    I am so sorry for what you have all gone through and what you are going through now. Clare was an amazing person, she talked about you all often. My thoughts are with you all.

  5. So sorry to hear of Clare’s passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you at this time. Remember your happy memories and all the fun times will always be with you.
    Thinking of you
    Bill and Joanne Wood

  6. It is with great fondness that I remember growing up with the Marshall kids, Clare was always such a treasure and so kind, pure salt of the earth. The nasty toll that Cancer brings to one will fade and only the beautiful memories of a very special lady will remain in your hearts with everlasting love. Thinking of you all with love and Kindest Regards Aleta

  7. To Clare’s precious daughters, Erin and Annie and her wonderful Grandchildren, I was very sadden to hear of your Mom’s passing. I still can’t believe she is not long with us. She was a good neighbour, a good friend and a great co-worker. Your Mom was a very, very special person. We have lost touch through the years but when I did think of her, it was always with fond memories and now that I know I will never see her again, I am really feeling bad that we didn’t keep in touch more. I will cherish the time that we did have together. I wish there was something I could say right now to take the pain that you are feeling away but remember she will always be with you in your hearts and in your memories. Cherish them. Hugs to you all.
