|Former Resident dies in Vancouver, B. C. September 12, 1946
Mrs. Johnson Clark was teacher in City Schools Passes Suddenly at 59 yrs of age
Through the city, and especially in West Saint John, there is deep regret over the announcement that Mrs. Johnson W. Clark, the former Helen Lockhart, had passed away suddenly in Vancouver on Thursday afternoon. Member of a well-own New Brunswick family, she herself had a wide acquaintance here and many will recall her as a valued member of the public school teaching staff here for some time. She and Mr. Clark were married in Saint John in 1913 and soon afterwards removed to British Columbia, where they made their home for 33 yrs. She was a member of the Vancouver First Baptist Church.
The death of Mrs. Clark took place in Vancouver General Hospital after a short illness. She is survived by her husband and one son J. Berton Clark; also by her father C. B. Lockhart, and one sister, Mrs. Alice Lockhart, of Saint John. New Brunswick.
The word of her death came as an especially hard blow to her father, former M.L.A., former collector of customs at Saint John and active for many years in Baptist Church and community work. At age 92 years of age he is unable to go to British Columbia, but his daughter, Miss Alice, is making the sad journey.
Saint John friends carry the memory of a lady of culture and of warm sympathy with those bereaved.
The funeral service was held Tuesday, September 17, 1946 at the Mount Pleasant Undertaking Co Chapel with Rev. Elbert Paul conducting the service. She was laid to rest in the Forest Lawn Memorial Cemetery, Vancouver, British Columbia. Mount Pleasant Undertaking Co were in charge of the arrangements.|
