Pauline Margaret "Peggy" Clarke

It is with profound sadness we announce the passing of Pauline Margaret “Peggy” Clarke, who died on Saturday August 8th 2015, at the age of 94 1/2. Peggy was born in Bombay, India in 1921 and raised in Leeds, England where she completed her education. After a tour of active duty as a WAAF in the RAF during World War II, she came to Canada in the early 1950s with her husband, Charles “Chaz” Clarke. They settled first in Driftwood Creek, near Smithers, B.C., relocating several years later to Salmon Arm, which became Peggy’s home for the remainder of her life. Peggy loved to travel and was an avid skier, celebrating her 80th birthday on the slopes of Silver Star. She was a counselor for the Canadian Cancer Society and an energetic member of the Salmon Arm community, contributing in many different ways during her long and active life. A Memorial Service will be held on Friday, September 18th, at 2:00 pm at Bowers Funeral Home. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society.
