CLARK, Elaine Christine
Elaine passed away peacefully on Friday, September 6, 2019 at the age of 77. She was born to John and Annie Bzdel in Wynyard, Saskatchewan. Elaine is survived by her spouse of 48 years, Ray Clark; her son Michael Clark and his children Brendan and Aleissia; her son Dale (Gillian) Clark and his children Sophie and Max; and her brothers Jim and Len (Lois) Bzdel.
Elaine grew up on the farm in Wynyard along with her five brothers (Jim, Wilfred, Sylvester, Henry, and Len). She entered the Congregation of Sister Servants of Mary Immaculate and served the Lord for 10 years until 1968. After leaving the convent, she met Ray Clark and they married in 1971. Elaine received a Bachelor’s of Education and Home Economics degrees from the University of Saskatchewan and worked as a teacher for many years in both Yorkton and Regina. She was an extremely hard worker and always kept busy with her many interests and crafts, including gardening, quilting, needle work, rug-hooking, Easter eggs and many, many more. All who met her knew Elaine as a truly kind soul, always caring for others first.
