Edna Marcella Clayton
1913 - 2014
A pioneer of the prairies passed away at the age of 100 on February 15, 2014. She was predeceased by her husband Sam Orrin Clayton in March of 1999. She was loved by her children, Orrin (Pam) of Ottawa and Adrienne of Saskatoon, grandchildren, Carie Clayton-Wright of Chelsea, Quebec and Glen (Monique) Clayton of Ottawa, Les (Charlene) Stukings of Bow Island and Terri Stukings (Calgary) great-grandchildren Chelsea and Miranda Wright and Mitchell (Michelle) and Sara Stukings. She was born in a sod house on a farm north of Biggar, homesteaded by her parents William and Ellinor Mountford. She had a strong sense of family and was faithful to lifelong friends. She loved cooking for company, playing cards, gardening, watching curling and baseball,and taking care of birds in her yard. The family is grateful for the loving care provided by nieces, nephews and neighbours. We thank Sunnyside Adventist Care Center for her care in the past four years. Her ashes will be interred in the vault at the farm beside that of her husband and parents. A memorial service will be held at a later date.
