April 19, 1916 – June 22, 2017

CLARKE, Norah Sibyl

Mom was born in the west end at Jervis and Davie, April 19, 1916. She moved to Richmond in 1922 with her parents Jack and Sibyl Knight and her brother Bryan (predeceased). She married our dad, Harold, in 1939 and raised us – Pat Craig (Wally) Margaret Francis (Ted) Wendy Rigby (Shel Nathanson) – there. Throughout her long life, she stayed constant, caring and bright. She loved her MAC, tai chi and being in the now. Her enquiring mind was always alert and sharp until just before her death on June 22, 2017. She was 101 years old. Several generations of nieces and cousins stayed in close touch and she was so grateful for this. She is survived by her daughters; five grandchildren Michael (Darrell Leet), Suzan (Wayne Coulson), Julie (Jason Katerenchuk), Colleen (Chris Voice) and Paul; four great-grandchildren and two great-great-grandchildren; as well as three step-great-granddaughters and two step-great- great-grandchildren. She left a legacy of unconditional love. There will be a celebration of life on August 19, 11 a.m., St. Faith’s Parish, 57th and East Boulevard (7284 Cypress St).
