CLARK; Rita, Margaret
January 4th, 1937 – September 23rd, 2014
On Tuesday, September 23rd, we had to say goodbye to the most loving and giving mother and Omi, Rita Margaret Clark. Rita was born in Einlage, Ukraine, where she resided until she immigrated to Canada in 1948. Here she later met her husband, William Clark and they were married in 1955. Rita and Bill raised 3 children in Richmond BC. Sadly, Bill passed away in 2011.
Rita is survived by her 3 children, Dr. William Clark (Cathy), Bruce Clark (Kathryn), and Blair Clark (Sharie); 8 grandchildren, Andrew (Haley), Graham (Kyla), Ashley, Taylor, William, Mitchell, Brad and Brooklynn as well as 4 great-grandchildren (Ava, Paxton, Liam and Harper). She is also survived by one brother, George Bunse and numerous nieces and nephews. After their boys were grown, Rita and Bill moved to the Sunshine Coast where they spent many happy years before finally moving to Chilliwack in 2006 to be closer to their family. Rita had a contagious passion for working in her garden and gave back to those around her with her beautiful flowers, baked goodies and delicious jars of jam.
She will be tremendously missed by her family and friends who’s lives she continuously blessed. There will be a private service with her children and grandchildren at a future date. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the Chilliwack Hospice Society or charity of your choice. For online condolences to the family please visit
