It is with profound sadness, yet gratitude for a long life, that we announce our mother’s passing on Sunday, November 10, 2019.
Mom was born in Little Pond on May 31, 1920. She was one of twelve children born to the late Howard and Nellie (Bonnar) Boutilier. She was the last surviving member of her immediate family.
After attending Provincial Normal College in Truro, NS, she taught the elementary grades at Little Pond, Alder Point, Florence, Mill Creek and Bras d’Or schools.
She is survived by her sons Ralph, Johnson Rd., Wayne (Rejean Basque), Moncton, and Cameron, at home, and daughter Elaine, Johnson Rd. Also surviving is her sister-in-law Josephine Clarke, Florence. Mom leaves behind several dedicated nieces and nephews, as well as, a host of wonderful friends and the caring neighbours of Little Pond.
Besides her parents, she was predeceased by her husband John Clarke, sisters Florence (William) Campbell, Theresa (Nathan) MacNeil, Grace (Sam) Peck, Ann Irene (Frank) Uraski, and Dorothy (Douglas) Fillier, and brothers Everett, Ralph, Bernard, Edgar, Dean and John.
