In loving memory ~
Mary Jane Ann Graham was born in Nakusp, B.C., and worked as a telephone operator in the Comox Valley, where she met and married Hugh Clair in 1955.
Together they raised a family of seven children. Alongside Hugh, Ann operated several local businesses including Clair Supply, the Woodstove Warehouse, and the Campbell River Garden Centre. In addition to running a small hobby farm, Ann was an accomplished baker who made many wedding and birthday cakes for Comox Valley families. Ann was a track and field athlete in her youth and loved playing softball with her children and grandchildren. She also made a mean home-brew IPA.
Ann was pre-deceased by Hugh in 2020. She is survived by her eldest sister Myrtle Craig; her 7 children; 15 grandchildren; 30 great-grandchildren; and one great-great-granddaughter.
There will be a celebration of life for Ann and Hugh Clair on June 24, 2023, at the Comox Legion. For more information please email
In lieu of flowers, the family welcomes donations to Glacier View Lodge, where Ann received excellent care for many years.
