CLARKE, Jean Elizabeth (nee Tyrrell)

February 13, 1937 – August 14, 2015

Jean Clarke, an evolved and beautiful soul, has begun her next big adventure. She lived her life with no regrets and always said, “If you’re bored, you’re boring.” She was the Energizer Bunny – first up in the morning with a smile on her face, ready for anything, and the last to go to bed. She hated to be left out of any conversation; she’s the one you always wanted to talk to, she had your back and her opinion was worth its weight in gold. Jean was an exceptionally loving mother and wife who put her family first. She was also a gifted academic, philosopher, day trader, teacher, meditator, feminist, artist, gambler, realtor and writer, and she had style. In essence, Jeannie was both interested and interesting.

She leaves behind a family who is so grateful for the magic and encouragement she shared, and who miss her dearly – Simon (also called Jack), her devoted husband of 57 years, her three daughters, Divona (Michael), Tyrrell (Donny) and Jo-Anne (Doug), her four granddaughters Jessica, Shyana, Siobhan and Mahalia, and a close-knit group of wonderful brothers and sisters, nieces and nephews.

A Celebration of Jean’s Life will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY (Fish Creek, 14441 Bannister Road S.E.) on Sunday, August 23, 2015 at 2:00 p.m. Forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made directly to Heaven Can Wait Animal Rescue Foundation in High River, Box 6131, High River, Alberta, T1V 1P7 Telephone: (403) 601-2520, www.heavencanwait.ca

In living memory of Jean Clarke, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Fish Creek, 14441 BANNISTER ROAD S.E. Telephone: 403-256-9575.
