Clark, Penelope Marjorie (Harrison)
April 23, 1947 ~ December 17, 2011
We sadly announce the unexpected passing of Penny on Saturday, December 17, 2011.
Survived by her loving husband Rod of 45 years, daughter Kim McLeod and son Kevin Clark (Kaycee), grandchildren Zena, Camryn, Dylan and Carter. Sisters Lynne Smith (John), Jaqueline Clarke, many nieces and nephews and long time friends.
Born and raised in Nanaimo and long-time resident of Gabriola Island. She loved her home on Gabriola where she enjoyed looking out over the ocean and all the beauty that the island offered.
Through the years she generously opened the door of her home to people and wanted to help them move forward with their lives and just “be happy”, always offering a place for the “kids to hang out and have fun”. She was most proud of her children and grandchildren and especially loved Rod – her companion and soul mate.
To all those who knew Penny, she will be very deeply missed.
Upon Penny’s request, there will be no service and the family will hold a celebration in her honour at a later date. Flowers gratefully declined, donations may be made in her memory to the Nanaimo Hospital Foundation, BC Cancer Foundation or a charity of choice.
