Elizabeth CLARK

Elizabeth Rose “Betty” Clark, a resident of RR5, St. Thomas, ON, passed away peacefully at her home on October 23, 2023, at the age of 73, after bravely fighting cancer for an extended period of time. She was the cherished wife of Thomas P. “Tom” Clark for over 40 years. Betty was also a beloved stepmother to Michael Clark (Beth) and Scott Clark (Suzanne), and a dear sister to Marie Clarke (Claire) and John Hasiwar (Loretta). She will be forever loved and remembered by her nieces Cheryl, Tracey, and Lori, as well as her nephew Joseph. Betty had a special bond with her Wheaten Terrier, Nikki. Born on July 20, 1951, in St. Thomas, she was the daughter of the late John A. and Mary (née Sebok) Hasiwar.

Betty dedicated 42 years of her life to serving as an office manager at TST Overland Express in London. Her commitment to her job was remarkable, and she retired from the position. She was also an active member of Holy Angels’ Parish in St. Thomas. Betty was an avid fan of baseball, with a particular passion for the Toronto Blue Jays.

Beyond her work and interests, Betty had a love for hands-on activities. Together with Tom, she undertook various projects in their country home. Betty also maintained a large garden, utilizing the bountiful produce to prepare delicious meals and desserts for her loved ones. Whether it was her famous rhubarb cake, delectable butter tarts, delightful shortbread cookies, or mouthwatering turkey dinners accompanied by her special coleslaw, Betty’s culinary skills were admired by all.

Betty’s creativity extended to decorating her home for every holiday, especially Christmas. Her residence would come alive with vibrant light-up pictures, numerous snowmen, holiday ornaments, and her captivating hand-made rug hooking. Every nook and cranny captured Betty’s love for festive décor.

The Clark family would like to express their heartfelt gratitude to their incredible neighbors, Sean and Kevin. Their acts of kindness and unwavering support towards Betty and Tom throughout the years were immensely appreciated and provided solace during challenging times.

Cremation has already taken place, respecting Betty’s wishes. A private service commemorating her life will be held at Sifton Funeral Home in St. Thomas, with interment following at Holy Angels’ Cemetery. Instead of flowers, the family kindly requests considering a memorial donation to the Canadian Cancer Society. Online condolences are welcome at http://www.siftonfuneralhome.com.
