Mrs. Sandra Cecelia Clarke

July 11, 1936May 29, 2019

Sandra was born July 11, 1936 in Winnipeg, Manitoba to Caroline Oleszuk. She is survived by her loving husband of 61 years, John Clarke, her son, Ken and daughter-in-law, Sonia, her daughter Sandra and granddaughter Justine as well as her brothers, sister-in-law and their families.

Sandra lived an active life. She played baseball and bowled winning a number of trophies. She also worked out at the gym and loved being at the pool. She was an avid walker as the rest of us tried to keep up and more recently, she even got into yoga with her granddaughter’s encouragement. Sandra was open to trying new things and experiences even in her older years.

John and Sandra travelled all over the world together, camped every summer in their camper throughout the West Coast of Canada and into the States. Even if John didn’t want to go somewhere Sandra always found someone to go with her.

She loved spending time with family and friends. Weekly get-togethers for shopping and lunch as well as Sunday dinners were a mainstay with her and her family. She was always curious about what went on in her loved ones lives and tried to help in her way when she could.

She took great pride in her home and gardens. She was a tremendously strong woman and her strength helps us to continue on.

A Visitation will take place on July 11, 2019 from 5 pm to 9 pm at Forest Lawn Funeral Home. 3789 Royal Oak Avenue, Burnaby, British Columbia. The family would be honored if you would join them and help them to Celebrate her life.
