CASTELLE, Daphne (Clarke)- Passed away on 28th January, 2007 near her home in Fuengirola, Spain. Born Daphne Clarke in Brigus on September 12, 1922, she was the daughter of the late Captain Robert A. Clarke and Beatrice Gushue, also of Brigus. Inspired by the maritime legacy of both parents, Daphne worked on passenger cruise ships as a bridge lecturer, instructor and tournament director for thirty-five years - a career that brought her back many times to the port cities of Newfoundland. Her most recent and final cruise was in November of last year. While traveling the world (including 18 round the world cruises), Daphne’s heart remained in Brigus where she hosted family reunions - since 1987 coinciding with the town’s annual Blueberry Festival. The yearly events attracted members of the Clarke, Gushue, King, and Castelle families from scattered locations in North America and Europe, including England, Spain, Bermuda, and numerous locations in the United States and Canada. Daphne is survived by two sisters: Beatrice Hirsh of Las Vegas, Nevada, and Georgette Van Sickle, San Diego, California; three children: Clarke Castelle of Newington, Connecticut, George Castelle of Charleston, West Virginia, and Gigi Joly of Fuengirola, Spain; eight grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. While interment has taken place in Baltimore, Maryland, at the side of her late husband, Paul, of that city, the family plans to hold a memorial service in Brigus during the summer of this year for Daphne’s many relatives and friends who live in the area or will be visiting. The date will be announced as soon as possible. The family expresses its appreciation for the devoted care provided by the staff of the hospice of the Fundacion CUDECA in Benalmádena, Spain. Contributions may be made in Daphne’s name to CUDECA, Avda. del Cosmos s/n, Arroyo de la Miel, Benalmádena, 29631 (Málaga), Spain.

Our lives are but fine weavings that God and we prepare,
Each life becomes a fabric planned and fashioned in His care.
We may not always see just how the weavings intertwine,
But we must trust the Master's hand and follow His design,
For He can view the pattern upon the upper side,
While we must look from underneath and trust His hand to guide...
Sometimes a strand of sorrow is added to His plan,
And though it's difficult for us, we still must understand
That it's He who fills the shuttle, it's He who knows what's best,
So we must weave in patience and leave to Him the rest.
Not till the loom is silent and the shuttles cease to fly,
Shall God unroll the canvas and explain the reason why...
The dark threads are as needed in the Weaver's skillful hand
As the threads of gold and silver in the pattern He has planned.

Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free!
I follow the plan God laid for me.
I could not stay another day,
To love, to laugh, to work or play;
Tasks left undone must stay that way.
And if my parting has left a void,
Then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss...
Ah yes, these things I, too, shall miss.
My life’s been full, I’ve savoured much:
Good times, good friends, a loved one’s touch.
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief-
Don’t shorten yours with undue grief.
Be not burdened with tears of sorrow,
Enjoy the sunshine of the morrow
.

The following poem written by her daughter Cathy clearly expressed the feeling of love and respect we all have for our mother.
I’m Going Home
At the crest of the hill
My house is in view
Where laughter was plenty
As my babies grew
Where children were raised
With lessons so true
Of compassion, caring
And kindness, too
Where sadness crept in
When my husband took ill
The Lord took him home
It was hard not to question His will
My heart has remained
In the home that I loved
With memories of good times
And thoughts of beloved
The years have gone by
And taken its toll
My frail body is aching
Comfort comes from my soul
My children I pray
You will always remain strong
I will be with you in spirit
It is here I belong
At the crest of the hill
My house is in view
My husband awaits
I’m going home, too
