February 8, 1932 – March 27, 2020
Marjorie “Marj” Clarke died peacefully at Hospice on March 27, 2020 in Victoria, BC, following a short battle with Liver and Kidney cancers. She was 88.
Marj was born on February 8, 1932 in Nanaimo. Marj moved with her mother and step-father to Honeymoon Bay where she eventually met and married Stanley Gordon Clarke in 1951. They raised their two children in Honeymoon Bay.
Marj spent most of her adult life active in the Order of the Eastern Star. She was Initiated into Cypress Chapter #92 in 1960, and then into Sunset Chapter #44 in 1990 where she continued to support the order fundraising for its charities. Marj served the order for many terms and is honoured as a lifetime member. This year would have been 60 years.
Marj is survived by her son David Clarke (Kate); and grandchildren Derrick Carlson (Rachelle); Sherrie Carlson (Mike); Ashley Tupper (Ken); Trina Schumacher (Kurtis) and 4 great-grandchildren. She is preceded in death by her husband, Stanley and her daughter Ann Carlson (Ron).
Marj had many great friendships and treasured them.
The Order of the Eastern Star in Duncan will host a celebration of life for Marj at a later date, in the summer. Marj had a great compassion for others putting their wellbeing before her own. In lieu of flowers, please donate to your favourite charity.Obituary
