  • Clara was such a kind and sweet lady. I knew her family from church growing up in Morden. She was very compassionate to our family when my brother and my son passed away. Although I only had one visit with her while she lived in Winnipeg, I have many memories of her and John, Frank and Paula mostly as they were closer to my age. My sincerest condolences to the Hoes family. Dolores - Posted by: Dolores Sylvestre (family friend) on: Jul 14, 2014

Our eight children and their seven children, along with the Temmerman five children made for great games of hide go seek in the evenings. Our coffee group met every Wednesday for forty years. Our three families celebrated many memorable birthdays and anniversries together. We will truly miss a great lifelong friend who lived her life with dignity, poise and grace. - Posted by: Sylvia Mutcheson (Family Friend) on: Jul 14, 2014
