Marie Clarke

June 15, 1941 - March 4, 2013


Clarke, Marie Antoinette “Annette”We are saddened to announce the passing of a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and friend: Annette Clarke. Annette leaves behind to mourn her devoted husband of 47 years, Geoff; her daughter Linda and son in law Wayne; her five beloved grandchildren, Philip, Alex, Vanessa, Giulia, and Cameron; her brother Bill and family; and many very dear cousins. Annette was the most generous and hospitable friend that one could ever know. Every relationship she had was special and treasured deeply. Her respect for life and love has been given to strangers who were able to receive the gift of extended life through organ donation. Annette lived her 71 years with an unwavering belief in God, her marriage, her family, and her friends, and was a rock of support to everyone who knew her. She is predeceased by her only son Geoffrey (1987), her mother Carmela Lucciola Sickini (2004), and her father Rene Sickini (1984), who are surely reunited with her now. Many thanks to the supportive people at the Cowichan District Hospital ICU who assisted Annette in her brief stay.She left this note to all to be read at her passing:“Do not cry when I am gone. Remember, I will be reunited with my wonderful son Geoffrey, family and friends who have passed on before me.

I would like to thank my husband for having loved me unconditionally throughout our married life. A special thanks to my beautiful and wonderful daughter, who has made me so proud to be her mother and has given me the best grandchildren a grandma could ever wish for. Lastly, I thank GOD for giving me an amazing husband, wonderful children, family and friends. I have  been blessed with love all around me. So, no tears, just cheers, and I’ll see you all in Heaven on day. God Bless You All”
