Mrs. Wilma Anna Clark
December 12, 1927 – September 14, 2021
CLARK, Wilma Anna (nee Wrigley) December 12, 1927 – September 14, 2021 After a very full life, Wilma departed these earthly bounds to be reunited with the love of her life, Len Clark. She leaves her children Patricia Thertell (Ron), Art Jones (Susan), Allan Jones (Lorraine), Sheila Jones-Lauzon, five grandchildren Ginger, Randi, Casey, Michael and Julia, along with her four great grandchildren. She is the last of the line of a large family in New Brunswick near the Miramachi. Imagine the reunion! Mom always had a dog. She was definitely an animal lover. Cats, horses and birds got her love too. She passed on the animal loving gene to her children and great grandchildren. Thank you very much to all the staff (past and present) at The Wynfield retirement home who kept Mom healthy and safe these last 7 years. We are grateful to Jessica, Raina and Lisa Marie whose warmth and kindness help Mom move to her heavenly place. In keeping with her wishes, no funeral service will take place.

I recall what an adventuresome nature she had. One cold December day in the early 1980's (I think) she made a trip down to Phantom Ranch in the Grand Canyon, Arizona - by Mule with one of her daughters. At one point, the leader of the trip who was right in front of her, gave everyone one last chance to turn back and avoid the further hours involved in the steep decline to the ranch where everyone was to stay overnight. A young man who was probably in his late teens or early 20s turned back, but she steadfastly continued on. There were some very good belly laughs had earlier from trying to get on a mule with pants too tight to allow the knees or hips to bend as needed. The pants eventually stretched a little, and off on the snowy trail we all went.
Love you Mom! S.L.

Art, Al, Pat, Sheila:
We are so very sorry to hear of your mom's passing. Wilma was quite wonderful to my mom (her sister Kay) when she was ill and she helped me tremendously with the care of my mom. We would all sit together many nights and laugh and drink tea.
Wilma shared many stories of their childhood with me and would tell me about all the shenanigan's that the two of them would get up to.
Your mom was a lovely, smart and, funny lady and we shall miss her terribly.

Our sincere condolences go out to Wilma's family. We have thought about her often since she left Grierson Street. We were privileged to live beside Len and Wilma for many years. They were the greatest of neighbours! We cut a hole in the hedge so Len could slip over for a visit & a drink and Wilma would put her lipstick on before stopping by for a chat or a request to lend her a hand. They watched our kids grow up and never once complained about the music being too loud. Rest in peace Wilma.
