Peacefully, at Gateway Haven, Wiarton on Wednesday, June 13th, 2018 in her 89th year. Ruth, loving wife of the late Bertram “Bert” Melvin Clark. Loving mother of Philip and his wife Elizabeth (Heyworth), Brad and his wife Laurie (Jackson), Steve and his wife Janice (Weller), and the late Larry Clark. Sadly missed by her grandchildren Jason, Adam, Adrienne, Wally, Taylor, Christine, Emma, Oliver, and Cory; and by her great grandchildren Eve, Connor, Aria, Madison, Ellie, Brynlee, and Emerson. Dear sister of Ralph Lyons, Harvey Lyons and Shirley Pollard. Ruth will be missed by her daughter-in-law Tina (Helmus) Clark and by her many wonderful nieces and nephews. Predeceased by her parents Ernest and Gertrude Lyons, and by her sisters Zella Nichols and Marion Holmes.
Ruth was an active volunteer for the Royal Canadian Legion Ladies Auxiliary and chances are good that she pinned a poppy to your jacket. She enjoyed lane bowling, carpet bowling and lawn bowling, was known to throw some darts and knew her way around a euchre table.
