It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Sally Ann Clow of Kamloops, BC, on December 31st, 2020, at 85 years of age. Sally is survived by her daughter, Mary-Ann Deslaurier of Kamloops, BC, grandchildren James (Laura), Sarah, and Chris, and great-grandchildren Madelyn and Liam. Also left to cherish Sally’s memory is her sister Susan J. Watts. Sally was predeceased by her parents William and Louise Widdows, her husband William Beatson, her brother-in-law Adrian Watts, and her grandson Ryan Deslaurier.
Sally was born in Brentwood, England on October 29, 1935. After growing up in Brentwood, Sally would eventually meet her husband, William. Sally would then accompany her husband to Singapore where they lived prior to the birth of their daughter Mary-Ann in England. Upon the loss of her husband, Sally moved to London where she enjoyed working at Whitbread Brewery and having multiple roles volunteering at the Palladium Theater. A change in scenery was in order resulting in Sally deciding to cross the pond and move to Kamloops in 1968. After arriving in Kamloops, Sally obtained employment at the Bank of Montreal prior to embarking on her career at City Hall. Sally often spoke fondly and with great pride of the twenty-six years she spent as the Deputy City Clerk. Sally loved a good road trip as well, whether it be to the Vernon Lodge or exploring the Pacific coast. If not behind the wheel, Sally could be found enjoying the company of her friends, "The Golden Girls", or having a pint and watching a game on the television. Most of all, Sally will be remembered as a dedicated mother, amazing grandmother and a very loyal friend.
A memorial service for Sally will take place at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations in her memory may be made to the Kamloops Hospice Association.
Sally was an awesome lady. She got me involved in working at Polling stations, which fed my interest in how elections work. I remember many great conversations and was really sorry to see this. My condolences to her family.
My condolences to the family and friends of Mrs. Clow (rhymes with "slow" - quote from Sally). Will remember regular conversations with Mrs. Clow while she shopped at the North Shore Safeway (where I work). Rest in peace, Mrs. Clow.
