Clark, Sarah "Lorraine" (nee Schonfeldt)

With broken hearts we announce the peaceful passing of Sarah “Lorraine” Clark (nee Schonfeldt) on October 14, 2020 in her 89th year. Reunited after 15 years with her husband Harry.

Devoted and loving Mom to Cathy (Helmut), Janice (Andy), Gary (Paola), and Brian. Cherished and adored Nana to Adrienne (Darren), Jackie (Todd), Karyn, Nicole (Chad), Heather, Leah, and Sandra. Much loved Nannie to Michael, Hannah, Tucker, and Myles. These names are her legacy.

Predeceased by sister Betty (Don). Survived by sisters and brothers-in-law Dot, Norm (Gail), Judy (Ron), and Dan (Ann). Predeceased by brothers-in-law Bill, Ron (Elsie), and sister-in-law Marj. Will be lovingly remembered by many nieces and nephews and their families. Fondly remembered by many friends. Dear friend to Pearl. She will be greatly missed by all the lives she has touched.

Lorraine was admired for her grace, dignity, loyalty, and kindness. Lorraine loved her family unconditionally. We will remember her for the many family gatherings, especially Christmas. She looked forward to any occasion when she could spend time with her family. Special times of tea parties, dress up times and picnics were spent with her granddaughters while growing up. She wished she could have spent more time with her great-grandchildren.

Lorraine worked at Stelco, and CUNA Credit Union. She was a long-time member of Knox Presbyterian Church, former member of IODE – Wellington Square Chapter, and the Burlington Curling Club. Mom loved to curl, crochet, garden, and play cards and bingo.

Heartfelt thanks to the staff on Orchard at Creekway Village for their compassionate and excellent care.

Cremation has taken place. A private family service will be held. Memorial donations may be made to Knox Presbyterian Church (Burlington), or Parkinson Society. Memories and condolences may be sent online at

Mom, thank you for enriching our lives. We are truly blessed. We cherish the memories of who you were. Give Dad a hug and a kiss for us.

To Cathy, Brian and family, 

What a beautiful woman your mom was; in ALL aspects of her being: from her outward beauty to the inward grace she showed to everyone she came into contact with. No matter what she was feeling, she always took time to ask how you were doing, and in my case, especially ask, "how's your mom, Joanne?" 

My mom Jeanette and Lorraine were Creekway sisters, (shall we say), because, ultimately that's what LTC Living is. It's a time of life where you're somewhat forced into a new life-style due to health/mobility situations, and one that at times is difficult to embrace because you've spent decades being the pillar of strength in your family. It's Community Living, and with that came new relationships and new family shall we say? Both myself and my mom loved Lorraine, as you can see from the picture. Lorraine's kind heart and soul touched us deeply and although my mom has declined, I'm 100% sure she still recognizes 'the heart of a person'. She knows if a person brings her joy...kindness, patience, etc. Lorraine 'always' brought joy to her surroundings! She always cared for her sisters and brothers at Creekway. You knew this because she was always checking in on them to see if they were 'ok'. What a kind heart she had! This heart has been passed down to her children and I know this to be true based on many interactions with both Cathy and Brian who were relentless in their devotion to her. I know that all of Lorraine's children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren were her world. She loved them immensely and the pictures in her room openly declared the importance of family!  

It is my prayer and hope that the memory of your dear mother is deeply rooted within your hearts. The coming months will bring challenges I'm sure. Stay united and stay in peace...because 'this' would bring your mom the biggest Joy possible! 

From the Bieler family, we send you much love and appreciation... 

Jeanette & Joanne xoxo

We will miss Aunt Lorraine very much and treasure our wonderful memories.

Our Mom, Betty, Lorraine’s sister, always had wonderful times together with Lorraine, Harry and their family. All of Betty and Don’s four kids and our families have very fond memories of our large family dinners set up in the basement or in the beautiful garden of their backyard, visiting Nana and Aunt Cis, having lots of laughs at the cottage, not to mention all the bridal/baby showers/weddings where we were able to visit. We remember Harry and Lorraine’s 50th anniversary as if it was yesterday and it was wonderful to have all the family to celebrate. We recall one of the visits at the cottage, we were trying to get Lorraine into the boat and we all laughed so hard it was amazing she got in and out! We enjoyed lots of card games, singing Irish songs, and of course great food and wine!

Lorraine will be missed as she always had a great smile & laugh when talking about her family that she truly adored. Lorraine was always interested to hear about the extended family and very proud to share news of her family. She was very caring by picking out customized greeting cards and never forgot a special occasion.

The bond Lorraine and her sister has was extremely strong. Their bond was not only strong with the sisters, it was equally strong with their parents and Aunt Cis. We recall them travelling together to many places including Florida and visiting other relatives in Lockport. There were many other family events whether it was the cousins or Pearl who certainly felt like family. This family bond & commitment extended to their own families. Lorraine was very proud of her own family and so she should be. The two extended families always had fun no matter what they were doing. We recall when Harry died, our Mom was in hospital and she insisted on going to the funeral and cemetery, when she should have been at home. Betty had to be with Lorraine and Lorraine was delighted she was there. Now they can laugh again & enjoy each other’s company.

Those we love don’t go away
They walk beside us every day
Unseen, unheard, but still always dear
Still loved, still missed, still ever near

Love always from Lorraine’s sister extended families. Our thoughts are with Lorraine’s wonderful family.

Sharon and Doug and our children and grandchildren
Randy and Nancy and their family
Rick and Kim and their family
Tim and Teresa and their family

Lorraine always brought a smile to my face when I would stop in to wish her well, when I came to their home to pick up Brian, as his Red Cross volunteer driver, to escort him to a medical appointment.
