HART, Claire Charlene

January 26, 1938 – Georgetown, Ontario
December 4, 2018 – Calgary, Alberta

Claire Hart of Calgary, AB passed away on Tuesday, December 4, 2018 at the age of 80 years.

Claire was a graduate of Ryerson Polytechnic Institute. Married husband David on September 12, 1959. She focused on raising her family and supporting her husband’s career. This involved living in numerous cities across Canada, ending with retirement at Arbutus Ridge on Vancouver Island. During her life she enjoyed lifeguarding and teaching swimming lessons. She also volunteered for many charities, including the Canadian Cancer Society. Claire and David also enjoyed travelling to many countries over the years. Her greatest passion in life was art. She studied with several well-known artists as a young woman and in mid-life pursued her degree in Fine Arts from the University of Saskatchewan. After moving to Arbutus Ridge, she became very active in the community, including golfing with a wonderful group of ladies, quilting and performing in the local choir and helping with the annual Christmas shows, all the while continuing to pursue her interest in art. She was also involved in local charities such as sewing clothing for the Women’s Shelter. During this time, Claire and David happily welcomed their two grandchildren, Adam (1990) and Kelsey (1992) into their lives, whom they enjoyed spending time with and spoiling. Following 20 years on Vancouver Island, Claire and David decided to move to Calgary in 2016 to be closer to family.

Claire is survived by Sister Sandra Timleck, Son Warren Hart and Daughter-In-Law Diane Hart, Daughter Andrea Hart and Son-In-Law Arthur Chernick, Grandchildren, Adam Chernick and wife Shannon, and Kelsey Chernick.

Claire was predeceased by husband David, her sister Gretchen and brother Brock.
