Jun 14, 1921 – May 30, 2018
It is with sadness that we say farewell to May Clark who passed peacefully, after a brief illness, at the Eden Care Centre in Chilliwack, B.C.

May was born in Calgary, Alberta on June 14th, 1921. She attended public school in Drumheller, Alberta and later at Edmonton Commercial School and Alberta College where she studied business/accounting.

She married Edward (Ed) Charles Clark (deceased) on September 8th, 1956 in Victoria, B.C. Although she had no children of her own, she was step-mother to Ed’s children from a previous marriage, Helen Parsons, Don Clark and Gary Clark (deceased).

She was a lifetime member of the Queen City Chapter No.5, Order of the Eastern Star, Victoria, B.C., (1962), attended Chilliwack Chapter No. 49, (1990), member of Miriam Temple No. 2, Daughters of the Nile (1962) and associate member of the El Tehran Chapter, Daughters of the Nile, Abbotsford, B.C.

May was a spiritual person and a great admirer of the late Rev. Billy Graham. She enjoyed good music, travelling, cooking, crocheting and needlepoint. Above all, she loved her family and friends and was always there for them.

She is survived by her sisters, Tina Eggen, Rae Boyd and her brother James Marsh.

There will be no public service. No flowers please.
