STEER, Clara Doreen (nee Schroh)

August 19, 1932 – March 12, 2012

It is with extreme sadness that we announce the passing of Clara due to complications from a severe stroke. We are comforted in knowing that she is no longer in pain as she joins her husband Larry after a fourteen year separation.

She is loved and will be fondly remembered and missed by her son Wayne, daughter-in-law Toni, granddaughters Chelsea and Savannah, brother-in-law George Steer, sisters-in-law Eilene, Iris and Jurdis along with several relatives and friends. Clara was also predeceased by her parents Edward and Caroline Schroh and her sister Della Plested (Schroh). The family wishes to extend a special thanks to the Tom Baker Centre Special Care unit for their thoughtful and attentive care in Clara’s last days. We would also like to acknowledge the care that Clara received at her “All Inclusive” at the Beverly Glenmore Centre over the past two years as she found her independence waning.

Calgary HandiBus had a special place in Clara’s heart as she did not drive and they were always there to help ease the burden of transporting her ailing mother to numerous appointments at critical times.

Friends and family are invited to a Celebration of Life at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S Park Memorial Chapel (5008 Elbow Drive S.W. Calgary, AB) on Thursday, March 22, 2012 at 2:30 p.m. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you make a donation to Calgary HandiBus Society by contacting Marni Halwas at (403) 276-8028 x 280 or Condolences may be forwarded through

In living memory of Clara Steer a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES Park Memorial Chapel, 5008 ELBOW DRIVE S.W. Telephone: (403)243-8200

Offer Condolence for the family of STEER, Clara Doreen (nee Schroh)

  1. Mrs. Steer was always so gracious and kind to me when I lived in Calgary. She always made me laugh and appreciate the small things in life…even though the biggest thing she gave was her smile and her hugs.
    …you will be missed…and have fun where ever your path made lead you and Larry!!!
