In Memoriam

Clare Eagar, February 6, 2024

Passed away peacefully on February 6 at St. Clare’s hospital after a lengthy illness, Clare Eagar RN. Trained at St. Bartholomew’s Hospital in London, Clare emigrated to Newfoundland in 1967 with her husband Stuart who predeceased her in 2022.  Since their arrival in 1967 both Clare and Stuart were deeply involved in Motorsports.  From the Argentia circuit, to Rally Racing and Vinland Motorsports, Players Newfoundland (‘74), Montreal Grand Prix, to the present Targa Newfoundland – both held managerial and executive positions.

Clare will also be widely missed by the national figure skating community. She was a judge and Coordinator for Synchronized Skating in the province for many years. Her outstanding sewing talents were a cornerstone for many local skaters and dancers.  

Special mention from the owners, teachers, and dancers from The Dance Academy. She was an integral part of every dance recital. 

Stuart devoted many years to teaching at the Marine Institute (formerly College of Fisheries). He shared Clare’s deep passion for gardening along with sailing and woodworking. 

Celebrating Clare and Stuart’s life are their children Alison (Michael and grand daughters Tori and Catie)their son Mark, along with Stuart’s sister Helen Cundiff (Australia), and Clare’s sister Scilla Leung (Ontario).

A wonderful hug of thanks to her long-time friends Anne Hughes, Lisa MacDonald and Ann Palmer who, along with Mark, looked after Clare through her illness.  

There will be a reception at Carnell’s Funeral Home to celebrate their lives on Wednesday, February 14th, 2024 from 2-4pm. 

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the SPCA to reflect their lifetime “obsession” with (particularly) Siamese cats.
