Pat Clark
1942 - 2014

 

The Capital (formerly Gloucester) Fair regretfully announces the passing of Patricia (nee Biggs) Clark.


Pat is survived by her daughter Susan and son Jason.


Although secondary to her undying love for her children, Pat loved the Gloucester Fair and served as our Executive Director for almost 40 years.  Seemingly more of a mother than administrator, Pat looked after the Fair and its successful transition from a 4 day event into Ottawa’s largest Fair is directly due to her tireless efforts.

 

Pat was tenacious in everything she did.  She discovered her love of community and for giving back when she joined the Cyrville Community Association where she convened and organized the Cyrville Minor Softball League.  She soon became a member of the Gloucester Recreation Development Organization, and a board member of the Community Centers Board for the development of facilities.

 

She proudly served her community once again as the Councillor for Cyrville on Gloucester City Council from 1992-2000 where she fought tirelessly for her constituents and community development.  She was always immensely proud for laying the ground work for the expansion of Innes Road into 4 lanes.

 

Everyone that Pat met or worked with experienced her pride and passion.

 

She will be always remembered and missed.

 

A Celebration of Life will be held in Pat's honour, on Saturday, January 10th at Cyrville Community Center, 4355 Halmont Dr. (Ogilvie Rd & Palmerston Dr.) from 2pm to 6pm.
