WRAY, Clara Ann April 10, 1941 - February 7, 2005 On February 7, 2005, Clara Ann Wray passed away comfortably with her family at her side at the age of 63. Clara will be lovingly missed by her husband Richard, who was married to Clara for 41 years; by their four sons and their wives, Martin and Cammy, of Hong Kong, Darcy and Yvonne of Vancouver, B.C., David and Leslie of Edmonton, Michael and Mona of Portland, Oregon; and by Clara and Richard's nine grandchildren and by her siblings, Kay Maloughney, Ron Speltz, Irene Hughes and Helen Bowron and of course by her many friends. All who knew Clara recognized that the marriage she and Richard shared was something unique, and was an example to others around her. She shared this example through her and Richard's commitment to the enhancement of marriage preparation for others over the past 30 years. The values she instilled in her own family are seen by the love and devotion in each of the marriages of her four sons. She and Richard always found the time to share their love of family with her sisters and brother and their many grandchildren. She will be remembered by the many friends, students and colleagues who had her guidance and mentorship while an instructor at the Misericordia School of Nursing. Those who were fortunate enough to know her experienced her living the adage of doing what she loved and loving what she did. A Celebration of Clara's Life will be held February 10, 2005 at Connelly-McKinley Funeral Home at 7:00 p.m. A Mass of The Resurrection will be celebrated on February 11, 2005 at 1:00 p.m. at Good Shepherd Catholic Church (18407 - 60 Avenue) with Reverend George Newman, SAC the celebrant.
