It is with heavy hearts the family of Clara Christine Saby announce her passing at the Trillium Lodge in Parksville on January 31st, 2018.

She was predeceased by her mother and father Christina and Nicholas Rambold, and her sister Sandra Rambold.

Clara was a member of the Roman Catholic Church and Conservative Party of Canada. She worked for many years at Care Homes as a long- term care aide in Manitoba and then as a nurse’s aide in BC, always providing much love and care.

In her leisure, Clara loved spending time with her grandchildren and reading. She was a strong woman of abundant Faith, who loved her family dearly. She was always cheerful and overflowing with Faith, Hope and Love. She was a faithful and loving wife to Rick since 1976. She considered her children and grandchildren as a special and cherished gift from God. By her we know Love!
