CLARKE, Dr. Daphne Angela


Daphne died on Wednesday, December 8th at Surrey Memorial Hospital. Daphne was predeceased by her parents and her sister Dorothy Brugman (Herman). Her sole surviving relative is her nephew Dennis Brugman, his wife Joyce, and their daughter Maureen (Mo). She leaves to mourn her passing a wide circle of friends, and former colleagues from the Delta School District where Daphne served as a school psychologist (PhD, 1974, University of Oregon). Daphne will be particularly missed by her special friends Dr. Patricia Crehan, Dorothy and Merle Gardner, and Vivian Corse. Her beloved dog “Truffles” has been adopted by a close friend of Patricia’s and is reportedly bonding very well with his new “Doggy Mum”.

In accordance with Daphne’s wishes, there will be no funeral or memorial service. Instead, there will be a gathering of her friends and colleagues at Daphne’s home sometime in January 2011 to share stories and memories. Daphne made clear that she wanted this get-together to be “a cheerful and happy occasion”. In the event of inclement weather, the gathering would be re-scheduled.
