Jude Clarke Death, Obituary – With sorrowful hearts, we announce the tragic news of Jude (Judy) Clarke’s passing. Jude was a top performer, a thoughtful friend, and a committed team player (who was like family). On Thursday afternoon, Jude softly left her family’s presence.
At the age of 68, she had recently resigned from her position as a real estate agent. She touched the hearts of so many people and will be warmly remembered as a kind, sweet, a hardworking lady with a huge personality, smile, and sense of humor.
She also had the most contagious laugh. Jude, you made our workplace, our life, and the lives of many others so much more exciting and joyful. We will miss your hilarious remarks and your tales of formerly working as a bartender.
Because of the confidence and ease with which you handled yourself, many of your clients and customers ended up becoming close friends and passionate supporters of you. There was nothing you couldn’t accomplish; you were one of the most capable and sensible persons we have ever encountered.
One of your finest qualities and a true tribute to the excellent person you were was your readiness to offer a hand and assist others who were in need (sometimes even while you were struggling yourself). Jude, you were a true treasure who left us way too soon. You have left a great vacuum in all of our lives, and we all miss you terribly.
Our thoughts and prayers are with your children Kathryn, Kellie, Rowan, and their spouses Heath, Will, and Jodie, as well as your cherished grandkids and great-grandchildren, to whom you were so dedicated. Jude’s funeral service will be held that day at 2 p.m. in the chapel at Aoraki Funeral Services, 160 Mountainview Road, Timaru. The afternoon of February 17 will be a closed day for Jude Temuka Real Estate (followed by private interment)
