Obituary

GLORIA MARGARET CLARK (published on January 24, 2009)

GLORIA MARGARET CLARK Our beloved Mum, Gloria Clark (nee Cochrane) passed away gently at Concordia Hospital, Tuesday, January 6, 2009. She was predeceased by her parents William and Noreen, her loving husband Captain James Clark, brother Leslie, her dear daughter Vicky and son-in-law Bill Gladstone. Gloria was born on August 20, 1926 in Winnipeg. During the time she worked for Eaton's in cosmetics, she met her future husband Jim. They were married July 26, 1947. They spent nearly 40 years in the military (Army) with postings across Canada, Germany, and many travels overseas. After six years at Camp Shilo, Jim retired from the service and they settled in Winnipeg. Mum worked for Bassey's Pharmacy and retired in 1988. Gloria was an associate member of the Fort Rouge Legion. She loved music, sang with big bands, and sang and danced with groups while in the service. Once retired, she joined the Winnipeg Chapter of the Sweet Adeline's enjoying travels, competitions and singing with them. Although Alzheimer's disease had taken over her mind, it could not steal her calm demeanor, sense of humor, or stop the music and song. Mum died as she lived, with quiet dignity. She is sadly missed by oldest daughter Terry (Jack) Murphy, only son Robert (Joanell), grandsons Ty and Troy Clark, grandson Chris Gladstone, in-laws and friends. The family expresses their sincere gratitude to the (Faith Lane) caregivers at River East Personal Care Home as well as the medical staff and chaplain of the Concordia Medicine Unit for their caring and compassion. Special thanks to Wayne Pollon of Rice Financial. Cremation has taken place. As per Gloria's wishes, there will be no formal funeral. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Alzheimer's or Canadian Cancer Society.
