In memory of
May 30, 1942 – October 30, 2015
Nora was born in Burin, Newfoundland on May 30, 1942 to parents Richard and Ethel Broydell. She had four siblings, Benny (Joyce), Pearl (Oscar), Georgina (Don) and Melva (Uncle Danny). She lived a happy and fulfilling childhood in Newfoundland.
In the early 60s she met a young soldier by the name of Wayne Clarke. They were united for life in marriage on April 29, 1962. Wayne and Nora had four children of their own, Delwin (Lisa), Dale, Jeffrey (deceased) and Scott. Seeking a new life for their family, Wayne and Nora moved from the Atlantic Ocean to the coastal city of Prince Rupert on the Pacific Ocean. B.C. became home for the family and in 1978 they moved to the scenic town of Smithers, where they remained until all the boys graduated.
Upon retirement, Wayne felt the draw of the Atlantic and once again their journey found them in Newfoundland. Wayne passed on April 30, 2011, and Nora moved back to B.C., to the city of Vernon, to be closer to her boys, their families, and the many great friends she made while previously living in Armstrong.
Nora was always known to have a big smile and equally big heart. Her love of life and family was always bursting at the seams. She had a very special place in her heart for her grandchildren, Christen, Ashleigh, Megan, Tyson, Braedan, Lucas and Kailey as well as her six great grandchildren.
Nora passed away peacefully, October 30, 2015, in Vernon Hospice after a battle with liver cancer. A service was held at the Army and Navy in Vernon on November 13th. She was truly loved and will be missed by all. We love you mom!
