Clara Walsh

  Walsh, Clara Harriet (Irving) of Fundy Royal Manor, Hillsborough New Brunswick.

  Formerly of Moncton, passed peacefully Tuesday, January 3, 2023.

  She was born in Baltimore, Albert County New Brunswick, June 30, 1930, to the late Corey and Orpha (Berry) Irving. As a young girl, her family moved to Upper Coverdale. now a protected heritage property, and the mural of her family home can be seen above the front doors  of the Riverview Sobeys to this day. Her Family being only the second owner of this property is  something she was very proud and pleased about. Her stories of the things that she experienced living there are precious memories that like her, will never be forgotten. Even though Dementia had a huge grip on her she never lost her great sense of humor.

  One of her favorite memories to the end was as a teenager her first job was in the mail room at Eaton's and how Mr. Eaton would stop in and tell them what  a great job they were doing.

  She was predeceased by her sister Mabel and brothers Jim, Howard, Clayton, Ernest, Johnny, Raymond and Grandson Jeremy Walsh.

  She is survived by her sons Leonard of Moncton NB, Larry (Alisa) of Second North River NB, and Paul (Diane) of Moncton NB. She is also survived by many nieces, nephews, grandchildren and great grandchildren.
