Clare Ann Lawrence
Passed on November 30, 2019
April 26, 1927-November 30 2019 Peacefully in her sleep, our beloved mother, grandmother, and great grandmother left us to go dancing with her man, Gordon, on November 30, 2019 at Rosewood Lodge in Stonewall. Mom will be lovingly remembered by son Lyle and wife Nancy and their children Regan (Riley), Monica, and Brett. Daughter Elaine Nickel, husband Lynn and their children Chris and Cara (Richard) and great granddaughter Alanna. Mom grew up in Prince Albert Saskatchewan before moving to Winnipeg to live with an aunt in 1942. Mom married Gordon in 1949 and moved to Lilyfield where they raised Elaine and Lyle and operated a family farm. Mom was a talented seamstress, making clothes for the family and also to sell for some pocket money. Mom loved to do crafts and created many beautiful items for the family and for the Canadian Red Cross raffles. She was known as an avid gardener, growing a huge vegetable garden and stunning flower beds. She once remarked that she was happiest when she was in her garden. Mom enjoyed her time as a 4H leader and as a volunteer for the Red Cross. After Dad’s death the big yard and house became too much to cope with so she moved to Chilliwack B.C. in 1990 until 2000 when she moved back to Stonewall to be with Lyle and his growing family where her grandchildren enjoyed catching butterflies and preserving flowers with Gramma. The past 10 years were a rough time for Mom as she had only partial sight and the things she loved to do most -crafts, reading and crosswords -were taken from her. She enjoyed her talking books and visits from family and the staff at Rosewood Lodge. A memorial service will be held on Friday, December 6, 2019 at 11:00 am at Lilyfield United Church. The family would like to thank all of the Rosewood Lodge staff and Dr.Graham for the wonderful care and compassion that Mom received as a resident there. All of the little extras that you did for mom warms our hearts. Special thanks to Ken Loehmer for his professionalism and compassion in taking care of all of the details for us. In lieu of flowers the family asks that donations be made to Rosewood Lodge Recreational Department, 513 – 1st Ave N, Stonewall, Mb. R0C 2Z0.
