On December 7, 2011 Ms. Jean Clark passed away peacefully at Royal Inland Hospital, Kamloops, BC at the age of 86 years. She is survived by her loving family: two daughters Debbie (Michael) Kowbel of Kamloops and Lori (Trent) Keim of Prince George, BC, son John “Ron” Clark of Saskatoon, SK and four grandchildren Krista Clark and Brennan Clark of Campbell River, BC, Taron Keim of Prince George and Gavin Clark of Saskatoon and great granddaughter Clarissa. She is also survived by her sister Laura Coventry of Nelson, BC.
Jean was predeceased by her father John Livingstone, mother Ellen, sister Betty and brother Bill.
Mom grew up in Nelson and worked in Trail during the war. It was there that she met our father Robert Clark. Together, they lived in a number of places in BC: Galiano, Salt Spring, Victoria, Delta and then Abbotsford. In 1969, they moved to Smithers where mom was employed at the Bulkley Valley District Hospital. Due to health issues, mom took disability and soon after moved to Prince George to be closer to Lori and her family. In 1992 she moved to Prince Albert, SK where Debbie and her husband Michael resided. Her son Ron was in Saskatoon at this time as well. In 2000, she moved to Kamloops with Debbie and Michael and resided at Desert Gardens until the time of her passing.
We would like to thank all mom’s friends at Desert Gardens for their love and support over the last few years. You all made a difference in her life and she really appreciated it. Love and thanks to Lucy from 6th Avenue Beauty for making mom even more beautiful every Thursday for almost 12 years. Also, thanks to Justin at Schoening Funeral Service for his kind help throughout this time.
No formal service by request.
Should friends desire, donations to the Kamloops Senior Centre, or the BC Lung Association would be appreciated in memory of Jean.
