Obituary

All those who loved her, lost their matriarch and friend Clara Snook (Henderson) on Friday morning April 12, 2019. “Born in a snow storm” on March 10, 1932 to Bruce and Lorena Henderson, she enjoyed a childhood on the farm with her much older brothers Howard and Hugh. Clara attended Sydenham High School where, after the tragic death of her father, she began dating (at the age of 14) a tall farm lad Glenn Snook. After high school, she and her mom went to Peterborough where Clara attended normal school. She returned to teach at Rosedale one room school and married Glenn July 26, 1952. Through 66 years of marriage they did everything together, serving their church, community and family, opening their home for countless meals, conversations and overnight stays, providing a warm haven for many. She was a creative and resourceful mother, homemaker, gardener, supply teacher (in all of the public schools in Loughborough) and caregiver for her beloved mom through her years of dementia. In 1969 they ceased farming, Glenn began his appraisal career and Clara returned to teaching at Harrowsmith Public School, retiring in 1975. Through those years she taught Sunday school, children’s programs and bible studies, was a tireless champion for missions, church pianist/organist, board member for her church and Wesley Acres, and showed up with muffins and soup wherever needed. In reality, she never retired but continued serving her church and community, caring for Glenn’s aging parents, and mentoring her grandchildren as only a teacher could. Following Glenn’s retirement they enjoyed many years of travel to every province, territory and state, as well as China and much of Europe.

She will be so missed by her husband Glenn, her daughters Susan (Brian) Powley, Nancy (Peter) Timan, grandchildren Sarah (Darryl) Kingdon, Andrew Powley, Jesse Powley, David Timan, Anneke (Jeremy) Gretton and great grandchildren (that she adored) Hanna and Jack Kingdon and Clara Joy Gretton. She was a beloved aunt of the Henderson cousins: Anne, Michael, Mary-Alice, Anthony and their families and a friend to so many.

The family invite you to join them at Harrowsmith Free Methodist Church, 3876 Harrowsmith Road on Thursday 18th April from 2-4 and 7-9 pm and for her funeral on Friday 19th April at 2 pm.

Given her tireless fundraising efforts for charities, donations can be made in her honour to the Harrowsmith Free Methodist Church, Heart and Stroke Foundation or a charity of your choice.

Dear Glenn, Susan and Nancy,
My condolences to all three of you. Clara was an amazing person in my life as well, and I am upset to hear of her death. The Christmas letter has kept me up to date and when none came this past Christmas I began to worry. I am sincerely sorry for your loss. Kathy Simms

Saddened my heart to hear of Clara.s passing . She will always be remembered with her gentle kindness and encouraging words of wisdom when Hon Justice W Henderson and myself would visit.

Death ends a life but not a relationship
