CLARKE, Florence


Peacefully at the Sault Area Hospital on Wednesday January 24, 2018 in her 97th year.

Beloved wife of the late Norman Clarke of Ottawa. Loving mother of Jackie Tonner (Doug) of Guelph and the late Brenda Lailey (Bob) of Sault Ste. Marie.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions to St. Luke’s Cathedral of Sault Ste. Marie, St. Mark’s Anglican of Ottawa or Algoma Residential Community Hospice (ARCH) would be greatly appreciated.
