Clarence MATHIAS

MATHIAS Clarence Dunbar Mathias, born August 3, 1913, passed away February 18, 2006. “Clal” was predeceased by his wife, Mabel, his parents, twelve brothers and sisters and one great grandson. He will be remembered by his two daughters; Peggy (Ken) Lambert, Shirley (Don) McDonald, six grandchildren; Karen-Dawn Hill, Wendy Olson, Randy (Lucie) Olson, Mike (Nancy) Taylor, Leean Lambert, Tanya (Dave) Englert and eight great grandchildren; Brandon, Dustin, Teagan and Colby Hill, Julie and Viviane Olson and Ashley and Hayden Taylor. He is survived by one sister, Grace Richardson and sisters-in-law; Dulcie Preston and Evelyn Morton as well as many nieces and nephews. Clarence was born in the Woodlands Municipality, west of Winnipeg and spent his formative years in Winnipeg with his large family of thirteen siblings. He spent a few years at God’s Lake, Manitoba where he married Mabel and then moved to Flin Flon, Manitoba where miners were needed during the war. He went overseas in 1945 and returned to Flin Flon where he continued mining until his retirement in 1978. He moved to Red Deer in 1983 to be close to family. The family wishes to thank the Bethany Care Society in Sylvan Lake and in particular the staff in the assisted Living Area where Clarence spent the past two years. We would also like to thank the caring staff at the Red Deer Hospice Society in Red Deer where he spent his final days. Dad specifically asked us to thank Dr. S. Murray for his many years of care. A Family Memorial Service will be held at St. Leonard’s on the Hill on Sunday, February 26, 2006 with The Venerable Archdeacon Derek Hoskin officiating. As an expression of sympathy, memorial tributes may be made directly to the Red Deer Hospice Society (99 Arnot Avenue, Red Deer, Alberta, T4R 3S6).
