April 23, 1935 – Coleman, Alberta
February 6, 2014 – Calgary, Alberta
Clem of Calgary, AB, passed away peacefully at the Southwood Hospice on February 6, 2014 with the comfort of her family by her side at the age of 78 years.
Clem was born and raised in Coleman, Alberta and studied nursing at Mount Royal College and later at the Holy Cross School of Nursing. She completed her training and started working at the Holy Cross Hospital in Calgary, AB. After a quick change of scenery as owner and operator of the Britannia Health Studio, Clem went back to work at the Holy Cross Hospital before a 12 year nursing adventure to Honolulu, Hawaii where she nursed at the State Prison until her retirement in Calgary.
Clem is survived by her children Robert Sinclair, David Sinclair (Dawna), her two grandchildren Greg, Derek and Heather Wieler (Nick); her sister Del James (Charlie), her niece Karen James (Emma) Michael Clarke, and nephew Gary James (Corrina) and their children Colton, Brayden, Kai and her friends from past and present.
Clem had mischief in her heart and soul and she sometimes marched to the beat of her own drum, that’s what made Clem who she was.
As we say goodbye to her, we know she lived a full life with few regrets. We know she would not want us to grieve for her, but to celebrate the colorful life force that she represented.
A Celebration of Clem’s life will be held on February 10, 2014 between 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. For further information please contact Heather, Rob or Dave. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.
