Obituary

It is with great sadness that the family of Claire Louise Inglis announces her passing at the age of 94.

She was predeceased by her husband, Joseph; son, John; and sisters, Evelyn, Kay and Anne. Her spirit lives on through her 2 remaining children, Hank and Gerry (Erin); 5 grandchildren, Aidan, Taylor (Melissa), Cale (Kirsten), Sierra (Spencer) and Tina; 1 great-grandchild, Bailey; and an extended family of relations and friends from every walk of life.

Claire blessed us all with many valuable lessons during her time on earth, among them: go to church and say your rosary; offer a friendly smile and ear to everyone; always dress to impress; only tell a ‘white’ lie when necessary; never say mean things about anybody (they are just poor souls to pray for); and a rum & coke will fix everything. Claire was a devoted wife, loving mother, and outstanding grandmother who lived every day to the fullest. She lived an impressive life and was incredibly active well into her 90’s, getting to see her grandchildren grow up, travelling all around the world on epic adventures, and owning every card table she played at. Claire was famous for her fabulous baking especially her butter-tarts, nanaimo bars, canned peaches & pears, her own homemade vinegar we all called "Claire's Vinegar", and prize winning antipasto. She always had a twinkle in her eye, a tender heart and a warm smile for all. She will be deeply missed. The family wishes to thank all the staff and friends at the Riverbend Retirement home, along with Dr. Dhunnoo and Dr. Sharma for all support and care over the years.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Tuesday, January 6, 2015 at 3:00 p.m., at St. Thomas More Catholic Church, 210 Haddow Close, Edmonton.

In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the local Catholic Women's League or charity of one’s choice.

In Loving Memory of
Claire Inglis
(Maiden: Eleniak)
