Clarissa was born in Fort Frances, Ont., moved to Brandon, Man. and then to Winnipeg, where she met and fell in love with Taylor and gave birth to her two beautiful children.
To Taylor, she was his best friend and they loved to laugh and tease one another. To her children, she was a mother sent from heaven who doted on every new stage in their lives.
As a daughter and granddaughter, she was loving, caring, and her heart of gold was always there for them. She was more than welcomed in TD’s family and was a great daughter-in-law, and she knew we all loved her deeply.
Clarissa also cherished her visits with all her friends and relatives.
An angel sent to Earth to share her love, memories that will be forever cherished. Rest in peace.
