Clancy, Emelie Harriet

April 7, 1936 - August 6, 2018

Obituary

It is with heavy hearts we announce the peaceful passing of our mother, Emelie, after a very brief illness and while surrounded by family.  Mom was born in Naicam, Saskatchewan, and was the second daughter of Willie and Ruth Fosterson. She was predeceased by her husband of 46 years, Dennis, in 2001, brother Ralph Fosterson in 2008 and sister Bernarda Selin in 2016.  She is survived by her children Debbie Greene (Wally), Patricia Newbury (Ken), Denise Heatley (Norm) of Campbell River, Roger Clancy (Sherry) of Campbell River, and Cindy Willich (Mike Lance) of Courtenay; grandchildren Lori Balzan (Jesmond), Cheryl Infanti (Andy), Dan Heatley, Nik Newport
(Becki), Adam Heatley (Crystal), Marika Maki (Paul), Adam Levangle (Gina) and Matt Sieffert (Alysha); great-grandchildren MacKenzie, Drew, Camryn, Payton, Pierson, Kennedy, Reid, Ross, Adora, Ryleigh, Travis and Clinton. She is also survived by her brother Elwyn of Powell River and many nieces and nephews and extended family.  Mom spent the last 55 years on a hobby farm in Wildwood where she and dad raised their five children. She always had a huge garden and together mom and dad tended u-pick berry fields where they grew strawberries, raspberries and blueberries. Over the years they grew and sold corn, cabbage and an assortment of other vegetables and eggs.
Mom was also very involved in the community, where she volunteered with hospice, played the organ and sang hymns with the residents of the Olive Devaud and extended care, was one of the Wildwood Grannies and was also known as “Hockey” grandma to others.  She had an amazing green thumb and loved to knit and crochet.  Mom was very artistic, which was evident in the sewing and crafts she loved to do. She was best known for her baking, especially her buns; you could often find mom in her kitchen baking buns for a wedding, party or some other function.  Mom is at peace and has gone home to her Lord. She will be greatly missed by many, even the bears.
