March 30, 1962 - September 13, 2018
Clarke, Maria Jane (nee Laveque) of Okotoks, AB passed away peacefully surrounded by family in High River. Predeceased by parents Rose and Andrew, sister Andrea and brother Andrew, Maria is survived by her loving husband Bill, children Johnnie (Cait), Andy and Amanda (Alen) along with the joys of her life, grandchildren Annabella and Aiden. She’s also survived by sisters Pat (Richard), Darlene (Murray), Betty (Brian), Judy (Joe), Marilyn (Wayne), Cindy (Vince), brother Sam (Marion) and numerous nieces, nephews and grand nieces and nephews. Always selfless, compassionate and giving, fiercely loyal and devoted to her family and those she cared for, Maria touched the hearts of many with her warm and generous smile, easy going ways and a ‘Live and Let Live’ outlook on life. She had a special place in her heart for children and loved nothing more than to let them lead in play, allowing their imaginations to run free or encouraging their creativity with craft and art supplies stashed throughout the house. She enjoyed the simple things in life, especially time spent chatting and laughing with family, boogying to music while tending to her latest kitchen creations (referred to as ‘an experiment’) and sneaking treats to her own and visiting pets. A life well lived and cut too short, Maria will be sorely missed and lovingly remembered by many. Maria’s family would like to extend our sincerest thanks to all of the staff of Unit 300, High River General Hospital for their professionalism, compassionate care and understanding given to Maria and family during her final days. We can’t say Thank You enough for all that was done on behalf of all of us. A Celebration of Life for Maria will be held on Sunday, September 30th, 2018 from 12:00 PM to 4:00 PM in the meeting room of the Lakeview Inns and Suites, 22 Southridge Drive, Okotoks. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the Canadian Cancer Society, Tom Baker Cancer Centre or Charity of your choice. Caring for the family is Lyle Reeves Funerals of High River (403.652.4242).
