Clara Bernice Konkin

June 18, 1944 – February 11, 2019
Clara unexpectedly left us in the early morning hours of Monday, Feb. 11, 2019.

She was the second daughter of Pete and Nellie Rezansoff. Her sisters are Olga (Lawrence) Halisheff, Elaine (Ed) Sallis, and Maryann Angle.

Her husband, Samuel Peter Konkin, of 57 years, her daughter, Lori (Frank) Lavigne and grandsons, Chase and Justice and her son, Patrick (Pam) Konkin and granddaughters, Paisley and Violet will forever keep her in their hearts and memories.

Clara loved and lived for her grandchildren and enjoyed her decades of volunteering with the USCC Ootischenia Ladies Cooking Group.

Family and friends were Clara’s focus and devotion. Her kind, gentle, lovingness will be greatly missed by all who knew her.

We love you…until we meet again, Clara, Mom, Baba…

Clara’s Service was held Tues., Feb 19, 2019 at Castlegar Funeral Chapel, Ootischenia Cemetary and Brilliant Cultural Center.
