Margaret Willetta Clarke (nee Bush)

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Margaret on Tuesday, February 9, 2021 at the age of 91 years. Margaret passed away gently and peacefully at the AgeCare Glenmore home in the loving presence of two of her children, Terry and Catherine. A devoted and loving wife, mother and grandmother, Margaret will be missed and remembered by her three children, Catherine Clarke, Terry Clarke (Barbara), and Susan Clarke, her three grandchildren Jason, Alix and Molly, great grandson Kai, her sisters-in-law, Madge Clarke and Mavis Bush as well as many nieces and nephews.

After growing up in Olds, Alberta, Margaret moved to Calgary as a young woman and studied at secretarial school. She met Don, her lifelong partner and best friend, in Calgary where they married, worked and raised their family. Margaret and Don shared a passion for music, singing, travel and most of all, their family. Margaret was a long-time member of Sweet Adeline’s and sang with Chinook Winds and Alberta Gold as well as in many quartets and the Gold Diggers ensemble.

Margaret was predeceased by her devoted husband of 61 years, Don in 2014, and by her three brothers Glen, Malcolm, and Willard.

Catherine, Terry and Susan would like to thank the staff at Age Care Glenmore for all their care and service in looking after Margaret.

There will be an online Celebration of Life for Margaret on Friday, February 19, 2021 at 7:00 pm.
