Despite her indomitable spirit and will to live, Yona Nivy, daughter of Shlomo (Sam) and Aliza Nivy, sister of Batsheva Lerner, beloved wife of Jim Clarke, loving mother of Erik and Joshua, passed away early Monday morning, March 2, 2020 after a courageous 17 year battle with cancer. Yona received her undergraduate and Master’s degrees from the University of Michigan and pursued her passion for teaching before eventually becoming a family business owner. Yona was first and foremost a devoted wife, mother, sister, and grandmother. With her vivacious, selfless, and affable personality she instantly made friends everywhere. Those fortunate enough to have met Yona adored her. Yona enthusiastically supported her children’s schools and countless athletic activities. After she was diagnosed with cancer, she became active in lobbying congress, as well as participating in numerous seminars educating medical students and physicians on how to recognize symptoms of her cancers and how to treat cancer patients with compassion. Gracious, humble, and unassuming, Yona never understood how many lives she touched or how many people she inspired with her generosity, kindness, and passion for life.

She is survived by her loving mother, Aliza Nivy, her adoring husband and children, Jim, Erik and Josh (Christy), her adorable grandchildren, Ariella and Miles, and her beloved sister, Batsheva (Aaron) Lerner.

It is suggested that those who wish to further honor the memory of Yona Nivy may do so by making a contribution to:
