Christine Norah Pike

d. October 23, 2018

Christine Norah Pike, age 71, passed away suddenly October 23, 2018 while visiting family in BC. The family held a celebration of life in her honour in Cochrane on October 28th.

Chris was born in London, England on July 10, 1947 to Sheila and Claude Clarke. She attended Thames Valley University where she met and then married her husband Roger Pike in 1969. They moved to Canada in 1970, and soon had two daughters, Sarah and Emma Pike. They shared many adventures together including building a house on Saltspring Island, travelling around Canada and abroad, having rocking parties, and moving from the west coast to the foothills of Alberta.

Chris was an avid volunteer with a passion for the environment, wildlife, tai chi and was a founding member of the Cochrane Farmers’ Market. She loved the outdoors, including gardening, hiking and being surrounded by nature.

Chris was an incredible mother and wife who always made time for her family and friends. Her heart was even bigger than her laugh.

She is survived by her husband Roger Pike, her daughters Sarah Pike (husband Sebastien Stewart) and Emma Pike (husband Robin Staples), brother Peter Clarke (wife Valerie Clarke), and grandchildren Julien Stewart, Sadie Stewart and Peter Staples.

Donations can be made in her honour to the Alberta Institute for Wildlife Conservation

Arrangements entrusted to McPherson Funeral Service.
