Clara Joyce Scobie


After a long and full life, Clara passed away peacefully at the age of 87 at Edmonton General Hospital.

Clara was born west of Lacombe to Jesse and Muriel Huseby, middle of their seven children.  She attended school at Meadowbrook and Wilmot, then moved with the family to the ranch near Alder Flats.  She married William (Bud) Scobie and together they raised their six children on their farm near Thorsby.  She was predeceased by Bud in 1983.  Clara’s family was the center of her world, but she also found great joy in friends, learning, helping others, travel, genealogy research, and volunteer work with her church.

Left to mourn her passing and to live the way she taught us are her six children and their spouses, her grandchildren, and great-grandchildren as well as many other family members and friends. She was also predeceased by son-in-law Richard Cender in 2010.

A Celebration of Life will be held on Tuesday, May 23, 2017 at 1:00 p.m. at the Sunnybrook Community Hall, Sunnybrook, AB,

Our family would like to thank family members for their support and visits.  We wish to recognize the outstanding care Mom received at the Grey Nuns, and Edmonton General (Unit 9Y) Hospitals.
