OBITUARY

CLARA MARGARET HUGHES

January 27, 1923November 20, 2021

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved mother, grandmother and great grandmother Clara on Saturday Nov 20 at Rosemary Heights Senior’s Village.

Predeceased by her husband William, daughter Patricia and son-in-law Wayne (parents of Mark and Shane, raised from age 5 by Clara and William), Clara is survived by her children Lynne (Dennis), Janet (Christopher), her grandchildren Ken (Grace), Heather (Curtis,) Mark (Nicole), Shane (Karen), Nicholas (Julianne), Caitlin (Will) and her great grandchildren Jacob, Abigail, Slade, Bentley, Adam, Bradley and Isla.

Clara was born in Vancouver, attended Lord Selkirk Elementary School and Grandview Commercial College and her early career was at Arrow Transfer when it was located on Granville Island. She was a member of the Rebekah Lodge for over 65 years. Both Dad and Mom were members of the Air Canada Pioneers as Dad was an Air Canada employee for 40 years.

However, it was as a homemaker that she discovered her true vocation. Kind, open hearted and generous she welcomed all to her and William’s home, firstly in Vancouver and latterly in South Surrey where she lived independently until shortly before her passing. As a result of her hospitality, she had friends around the world who have received her kindness and love.

The family would like to thank the staff at Rosemary Heights for their kindness and the compassionate way they cared for Mom in her final days. As per Clara’s request there will be no memorial service. Family and friends will gather at a later date to celebrate her life.

In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation in Clara’s name to the Peace Arch Hospital Auxiliary Society (www.pahas.ca).
