Joann Patricia Clark
Born May 2, 1952
On Aug. 25, 2008 our beloved Joann went to her eternal rest. Her will to live was fierce and she did not “go gently into that good night.” Yet it was in lasting peace that she closed her dark brown eyes for the last time.
Life took her from a childhood spent kicking stones down the streets of Somme, Saskatchewan to developing a taste for fine red wine as an adult. In the years in between she studied accounting, raised her daughters and left an indelible mark on all who knew her.
We are forever blessed to have had Joann in our lives. She loved, laughed and lived for each moment. Her pragmatic approach to everything is her legacy. The memory of her laughter, her ready wit and sense of humor is the treasure she has left behind.
She also leaves to this world her two beautiful daughters Andrea Davonne Clinton and Genevieve Noelle Clinton and the grandchildren that she loved so dearly Clayton, Courtney and Madison, all of Saskatoon, SK. She also leaves behind her mother Edna Fannon of Regina, SK and her siblings Robert Clark, Elizabeth (Jerry) Kwasney, Wava (Patrick) Bremner, Daniel (Maureen) Clark, Dale (Amanda) Clark, and Terry Clark as well as her step-siblings Ineke (Werner) Lechler, Sharon Fannon, Jacqueline (Walter) Blotski and Janis (Bill) Conley. She also leaves behind many nieces and nephews. Also mourning her passing are her good friends Barb Britton, Kelowna BC and Sharon George, Smithers BC. Joann was predeceased by her partner Doug Hancock in June of this year, by her step-father Harrison Fannon in 1984 and by her father Roy Clark in 1960.
The family would like to thank the wonderful staff of the Palliative Care Unit at St. Paul’s hospital for their excellent patient-centered care and a special thank you to her family physician Dr. R. Billington for his compassion and his wonderful sense of humor which Joann appreciated. Expressions of sympathy may be forwarded to the family through www.mem.com. A Memorial Service for close friends and family was held in Saskatoon, SK on Tuesday Sept. 2, 2008 at 2:00 pm at McKague’s Funeral Chapel 300 3rd Ave South (306) 664-3131.
Arrangements are in care of David Schurr of ACADIA-McKAGUE’S FUNERAL CHAPEL. Honored provider of Dignity Memorial.
