Funeral Pointers:



  • Tom and Lorie Ratzlaff and family says:

    We always enjoyed visits with Aunt Anne and Uncle Clem — both in person and by phone. He always had the time to listen and of course the time to talk!! Love and concern forever expressed, with laughter and wisdom.Sometimes we called him Carl just too see him grin! Take care and say hi to your Anne.

  • Dorrie RATZLAFF says:

    My Uncle Clem was always someone to rely upon for his integrity and his faith. And of course for his hilarious sense of humour for which I will always remember him with love and affection. My son Joseph met Clem only once and enjoyed him so much, laughing with him and his delightful way of making gentle and loving fun of life. We will miss Uncle Clem.

  • Dawn Saddler says:

    Even though my family is unable to come to the funeral, our thoughts and prayers are with all those attending.

  • Karen Anderson says:

    Although the times spent with Uncle Clem (and Auntie Anne) were sometimes not frequent, they did span many years. About 70, I guess. And all were memorable, particularly the more recent visits to Westbank with my mother, who is Clem’s only sister. Uncle Clem was always a charming host, full of memories and stories from long ago. In this way, he has connected me with those who came before, especially my grandparents and I know he is glad to be home with them and his Anne.

  • Ida and Harvey Lipka says:

    We so enjoyed our yearly visits with Aunty Anne and Uncle Clem and will miss them both. Uncle Clem always had a story to tell and loved to share his love of cooking with Harvey who also loves to cook. He loved to garden and shared many tips with us and taught Harv how to properly prune our apple trees. He will always be remembered with lots of love.

  • Lois Andres Enns says:

    I only met Clem this past September but had such a good time talking to him I was looking forward to the next Garlic Festival in Merritt thought I”d see him again, will have to wait til the hereafter.My condolances, wish you had let me know I could have come to the service

  • Sally Stewart says:

    Clem was a god sent to Crescent Beach I think of him often for all the good tales we share from 40+years ago. I am asking family if they would object to my writing a short story to send to CBC radio station to be read -hopefully on the Stuart McLean
    If you like you could call me and I would share a them.

    For one I was new to BC, to Canada, from Michigan . I was happy my car broke down and I landed in Crescent Beach. Your uncle stepped up with a letter and asked me if I was Sally Canby. I smiled at his smile and said I was. With a lilt in his voice and a twinkle he announced-“Sally Canby-Sally CAN BE anything she wants to be. Well no one in 30 years ever made me feel so good about my name and the expectations it laid on me. new country, new life and I’m told by a wise old postie that I can be anything I want to be.
    That is just one story – They are all good .
    We were all luck to have Clem as a friend and postie
