It is with great sadness that we share this news. On Monday, July 3, 2017 Esther Claire Kathleen Clemo passed away in her home.
Claire was born in Hong Kong and immigrated to Canada in 1954. She became a teacher in 1964 and spent over 30 years teaching the youth of Mission. Recognized for her dedication, she won the Queens Silver Jubilee Medal, the Rotary Club Distinguished Service award and recently she became a Freeman of the City of Mission.
Claire was also a benefactor at the Mission Community Foundation creating a scholarship for future teachers and/or nurses. Her goal was to ensure that at least one student could receive her award annually and if there weren’t enough monies in the fund on a particular year, she would simply top it up. Her generosity did not stop with the Foundation. Claire believed that good health was also important and as such was a supporter of the Mission Memorial Hospital. She has the honor of holding Sapphire status on their remembrance wall.
Claire genuinely cared about the people in her life and continued to follow the lives of her students after they left her charge. Despite ill health, she always wore a smile. All who knew her will miss her.
Good-bye good friend, keep a watchful eye out for us.
