Clara Marie Beninger (nee Monahan)

October 10, 1930 - October 22, 2012


Clara Marie Beninger (nee Monahan). Clara passed away peacefully as autumns’ leaves fell in Nelson, B.C. She was able to say goodbye to her son, David, her daughter, Pat and her son-in-law, Rick before joining her Lord. She was also surrounded by the love and care of the staff of the Mountain Lake Seniors Community where she has lived for the past 5 years

Clara was born in Orillia, Ontario to Charles Monahan and Maud English. She grew up the youngest of six girls, on a farm in the Sparrow Lakes District of Ontario. After finishing high school, Clara completed secretarial school and worked in an office. She also trained as a practical nurse in Gravenhurst, Ontario before moving to the Kootenays. The Salvation Army Church was central to her life in Nelson and she participated in several community services projects through Nelson Home Support. Clara felt blessed to have received support and friendship from so many members of her community

Clara has lived most of her adult life in the Kootenays. She is survived by her five children, David, Edward, Patricia, Donald and Michael and several nieces and nephews. Clara loved her family and always kept us in her thoughts and prayers.
