Clare passed away peacefully at home with family by her side on January 5, 2014, after a courageous battle with ovarian cancer at the age of 57 years.
Clare is predeceased by her father Charles Marshall and mother Betty Marshall (Chase, BC) and is lovingly remembered by her husband Wayne McGill and her daughters Annie Korver of Calgary and Erin Vieira (Jamie) of Kamloops, sister Diane Tarry (Bob) of Chase, brother Jim Marshall (Cindy) of Merritt, brother Harry Marshall (Monica) of Parksville, mother-in-law Joan McGill of Salmon Arm, stepson James McGill of Port Coquitlam, stepson Jay McGill of Calgary, stepdaughter Kolina Malloff of Grand Forks, numerous nieces and nephews, her beloved granddaughters Abby and Hannah Vieira and step-grandchildren Alexander, Ana and Lauren McGill, and many good friends.
Mom spent her childhood years in Vancouver, Williams Lake and finally Chase where she graduated from high school. In 1982 she moved to Revelstoke where she raised her two daughters. In 2000, Mom and Wayne moved to Salmon Arm.
Mom loved to spend time travelling with Wayne in their RV and during the summer of 2013 together they took the ‘trip of their lifetime’ to the Grand Canyon. Mom also enjoyed quilting, sewing, taking her sailboat out on Shuswap Lake, and most of all, spending time with her family. Mom experienced her ‘perfect day’ on November 16, 2013 when she wed her best friend, Wayne McGill in the presence of her family.
Mom will forever be remembered as a loving mother, wife and Nana and a dedicated colleague. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Shuswap Hospital Foundation would be appreciated.
Mom’s service will be held at St. John’s Anglican Church in Salmon Arm on Friday, January 10, 2014, at 2 p.m.
