It is with great sadness that the family of Velvet announce her passing at the age of 76 years. She is predeceased by her parents, Dave and Gloria Hunter and her brother, Lorne Hunter.Velvet was born in Kamsack, Sask. She was the eldest of 6 children born to Dave and Gloria Hunter (nee MacFarlane). She was raised on the family farm SW of Kamsack and attended school in Kamsack. Velvet will be lovingly remembered by her husband, Dave Clark, and her siblings Brian Hunter, Lynda Walker(Don) and Murry Hunter (Cheryl).
Velvet met Dave Clark in Thompson, Mb in 1970. From that time on, she and Dave were inseperable. They resided in Winnipeg, Mb for a couple of years, then moved across the country to St. John's NFLD where Dave was employed by the Dept of Fisheries. Although they made many friends there and enjoyed the lifestyle, they missed life on the prairies and moved to Edmonton, Ab in 1973. They were married March 6, 1976 at their home in Edmonton, and moved to the Kamsack area in November 1977. Grandma MacFarlane gifted the farmhouse and surrounding yard to Velvet and Dave and they proceeded to add onto the house in all directions. To this day, they have never really stopped making amazing improvements to the entire house and yard.
Velvet was very passionate about her family and while she was able, she worked tirelessly and endlessly to host many family functions over the years. She took great pleasure and pride in having the whole family together, sharing delicious food, playing lots of games amid gales of laughter, and thoroughly enjoying everyone who was able to attend.
Whether we want to believe and accept it or not, each and every person alive will leave behind a legacy - good or bad. Velvet leaves a legacy of honesty, fairness, generosity, a love of nature, humbleness, a quick wit, loving to have fun and enjoy a good laugh, a giver of many warm hugs, a deep devotion to her family and not being afraid to speak her mind.
Velvet loved her nephews and nieces beyond measure. She cherished times spent with them and always longed to, and loved to, listen patiently to their stories and hear about their interests and accomplishments. She will be missed and forever remembered by Eric and Brad North, Bart Hunter and Shayla and Tara Hunter.
During the last several years of her life, Velvet resided at the Kamsack Nursing Home. Her family would like to express their sincere appreciation and thanks to the staff and caregivers of the Nursing Home and the Kamsack Hospital. Your kindness, friendship, caring and professionalism helped to make her life easier in so many ways.
Those who wish to, may donate to the Kamsack and District Nursing Home Ladies Auxilary (of which Velvet was a member).
A private Service and Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
