Vina was my father and late mother's oldest friend. They met in Derby just months before Vina and Don emigrated but became firm pen friends. Over the years our two families became very close and enjoyed wonderful times together when the Clarkes visited the UK. We all have such happy memories of those times. Vina was a wonderful raconteur with a great sense of humour and was imbued with a real kindness that shone from within. We know how much she will be missed and we all send our deepest condolences to Debbie , Richard and family. The Knight family UK and Tenerife

Louise Hamer (nee Knight)

My childhood is rich with memories of Mr and Mrs Clarke and the Clarke Family. We shared Wishbone Crescent in Ajax. I will always remember her kindness, her accent and always a warm smile. She will be missed. Our deepest condolences from myself and the entire Peech Family. John, Gladys, Mike, Celine, Jamie and Greg.
