Obituary of Olive Amelia Clark

CLARK (MYATT), Olive Amelia Olive passed away on May 10, 2020, after a full and happy life. She was born on July 17, 1927 to parents Minnie and Albert Myatt. Olive grew up in Oxford and shared many warm memories of times with her three sisters. After graduation, Olive attended business college in Truro and then joined the faculty as a teacher. Life changed for Olive when she met Allister, with whom she shared a romance lasting over forty years. After a special chapter as newlyweds in Canning, Olive and Al moved to Hantsport where Olive was very active in the community. She played key roles with the United Church Valley Presbytery, St James United Church, the UCW as a Life Member and the Hantsport Memorial Community Centre. She was a founding member of the Hantsport and Area Historical Society. She was proud to have been recognized by the province and town of Hantsport for "exceptional volunteer service". She became an expert at anything she tackled, including sewing, painting, bridge, gardening, and her famous cherry squares. Olive was happiest spending hours on the front porch with Allister, a pot of tea and plate of sweets ready for the many friends passing by. In earlier years she loved family summer vacations, exploring Canada and the United States. Olive is survived by daughters, Leah Clark and Laurel Clark (Scott Robertson); grandsons, Warren Robertson (Kim Wempe) and Duncan Robertson and much-loved nieces and nephews. Her grandsons were a special blessing and she was very proud of their adventures and accomplishments. She was especially pleased to welcome Kim to the family. Olive was predeceased by husband, Allister and sisters, Eileen, Eleanor and little sister and best friend, Shirley. The family would like to thank those who were helping hands, allowing Olive to enjoy her later years in her Hantsport home. Our appreciation also goes to all those who cared for her at the Windsor Elms. There will be a family gathering at a future date. Friends may celebrate Olive’s life through a donation to the Hantsport & Area Historical Society, PO Box 525, Hantsport, NS B0P 1P0 or through an act of kindness. Arrangements for cremation have been entrusted to DeMont Family Funeral Home & Cremation Service, 419 Albert St., Windsor (902-798-8317).
