In memory of
Clara Mae Burke
Clara Mae Burke January 4, 1933 - October 11, 2016. It is with heavy hearts that the family of Clara Mae Burke announces her sudden passing at the age of 83. Clara Mae was predeceased by her husband and love of her life, Robert Burke. Robert was in the RCMP, and Clara Mae lovingly made a home for her husband and four children in the numerous places that Robert was posted throughout Alberta and Canada. Finally calling the Calgary and Cochrane areas home, Clara Mae and her husband lived their dream of ranching in the Foothills north of Cochrane and were actively involved with the RCMP Veterans' Association as well as Cowboy Church in Cochrane. Clara Mae spent many years as a volunteer grandparent at Jerry Potts Elementary School in Calgary, sharing her sweet disposition and love to so many children. Clara Mae was born into the Braiden family in Sedgewick, Alberta and is predeceased by her parents (Andrew and Mary Ellen Braiden) and brothers Andy, Bill and Jim. Nothing made Clara Mae happier than spending time with her family and friends. She is survived and dearly missed by her children - Robert (Raye), Bruce (Rene), Susan (Dean) and David (Kate); as well as her brother Bert and sister Sheila. Clara Mae was a loving, involved grandmother to her 9 grandchildren and 9 great-grandchildren. At Clara Mae's request, there will be no formal service held. In lieu of flowers, donations made be made to the charity of your choice. Messages of condolence are welcome to be left for the family at www.myalternatives.ca
