Margaret Jean Clarke

Margaret Jean ClarkeMargaret Jean Clarke (nee Walsh) born Hamilton, Ontario Aug. 3, 1928 passed away peacefully on Tuesday April 12, 2016 at Evergreen Hospital surrounded by her family and friends.   Jean was an avid reader and competitive card player.  She was a preferred partner in any game.  Jean loved to spend time outdoors whether camping, hiking, BBQs or family celebrations.  She also loved to spend time with her children, grand children and great-grand children.  Jean will be dearly missed, but will be remembered by her gift of making us laugh.  Jean embraced anyone and everyone who was important to her family.  Her gentle soul, warm smile, and fiery spirit will be missed by all who had the pleasure to know her.
She is survived by her sister Norma (Jim) and predeceased by her parents (William James and Marie Irene Walsh (nee Clarke)) and two of her siblings Wally (Verna) and Buck (Jerry). Loving mother to Darlene, Marilyn, Larry (Rona), Lorna, Sheri (Bill), predeceased by Sharon. Loving grandmother to Perfection, Christopher, Allison (Aaron), Logan (Aja), Daniel (Erin), Wally (Courtney), Gino, Doug (Alexandria), Cody, and Kira.  Also adored by her great-grandchildren Emma, Taliyah, Zak, Maelle, Sawyer, Chloe, and Lille and many nieces and nephews.
Special mention to her best friends in life Marge and Connie. Her adopted families Terri, Dan, CJ, and Whitney and Tara.  Special gratitude to the Lingenfelter Families for their continued support and love.
Many were touched and blessed by Jean’s love!
At her request there will be no services.  In lieu of flowers or donations please pay it forward in kindness in Jean’s memory.

    Our love to you, in the passing of “Auntie Jean”. She taught me many life lessons as I was growing up. She showed me the meaning of devotion to family and friends. Even though the miles separated my Mom and her, they remained close. I am confident that they are now together laughing and playing crib once more.

    I was so sorry to hear that Ms. Margaret Jean was no longer with us. Extending my deepest condolences to her family over your loss. “Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.” – Psalms 23. “Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live… Believest thou this? She saith unto him, Yea, Lord: I believe…” May your precious memories and the wonderful promise of the resurrection bring you peace. Eye has not seen and ear has not heard, neither have there been conceived in the heart of man the things that God has prepared for those who love him. 1 Corinthians 2:9; 2 Corinthians 1:2; John 11: 23-25.

    It is with great sadness that we learned of the passing of Jean. Our love and affection go out to her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. We were fortunate and blessed to have her experience the peace and tranquility of our beach home on several occasions with her daughter Darlene. Rest in peace Jean.
