A celebration of Jenny Clarke’s life took place this morning at Poole Crematorium.
The founder of the charity Woofability, died on 10 October 2014 aged 59. Over 200 mourners who had been asked to wear something bright, and more than 40 assistance dogs and their partners gathered for the service, which was uplifting and beautifully read by a long term friend, Pat Clark.
Suzie Feist, Jenny’s cousin, talked about their lifelong friendship and John Stone, a friend and supporter of Woofability commended Jenny’s achievement with the charity and the strong links she had forged with the socialisers as well as those who have been partnered with assistance dogs. He said had she been at the service, she would have known everybody by name and more importantly, the name of every dog.
Following the service, Jenny’s husband Andy and their daughter Sarah released a white dove each as a final farewell to a wife, a mother and someone who has changed so many lives for the better in the community.
