Edith Darlene Clarke
August 7, 1948 – September 9, 2021
On September 9, 2021 Edith Darlene Clarke left us to be with the Creator. She is survived by children Trevor, Terri (Ronnie), Crystal, Jade (Geoffrey), Eileen (Chris), Shane, Jesse, Terrill, and Courtney (Bucky), her special baby number 12 Oceanna Raine, brother Wayne Clarke, her 33 grandchildren, 11 great-grandchildren and numerous extended family members. She was predeceased by husband Ernest Easter, her children Albert and Valdez, her mother and father Sarah and Albert Clarke, brothers Douglas, Johnny, Nelson and Edward, and her sister Kimberly. Darlene held many roles as our beloved family Matriarch, mother, sister, auntie, cousin, grandmother, great-grandmother, and friend. She was deeply devoted to her family and forged unbreakable bonds based on her insurmountable love for them. Darlene was a strong, courageous woman who provided guidance, mentorship, and wisdom to all those she encountered. Although it pains us that she has left this world, we find comfort that she is now free from all her earthly pain and suffering. Darlene’s ever lasting legacy of strength, determination and love lives on in all of those whose lives she touched. Darlene’s family would like to thank the medical staff at Selkirk General Hospital and the Health Sciences Centre, as well as the staff at Gilbart Funeral Home who provided thoughtful and gracious care. We greatly appreciate all who provided comfort and support to the family during this difficult time.
