Just nine days before her 100th Birthday in the early hours of Saturday the 11th of July, Mrs Lillian Maria May Clarke ‘Nanny Lil’, the founder of Clarkes Coaches, passed away peacefully. Nanny Lil was surrounded by our immediate family in her final hours.
The values my Nanny Lil taught me have played a very important part in my life and will stick with me for eternity: to work hard, to be fair and most of all to be strong.
I have been through some difficult and challenging times, both thick and thin, she would always be there with a touch on the shoulder and encouraging words to help me dust myself down and pick myself up.
Without this amazing lady Clarkes would not be where it is today. I know she will look down upon us and help spur us on to continue to be the best we can be – let’s make her proud.
