Leola Ionie Clarke (nee Waters)

December 31, 1932 – December 25, 2022
In loving memory ~
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-granddaughter 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.
