She held many odd jobs such as cleaning houses, cooking and working for large families caring for their children. She began to pursue her dream of becoming a nurse while working at Antler and Medfort hospitals. Her dream was interrupted as most stories go when she fell in love with the man of her dreams. In 1953, she married Leif Sorensen and began her new life. They lived in many Saskatchewan communities before settling in Melville. Their marriage was blessed with six children. Clem was a very active and caring stay at home mother. In later years, she had time to volunteer many hours to the CWL, Rosary Sodality and many other organizations. Clem enjoyed gardening, volunteering wherever needed, baking and cooking. Her best times were those spent with family and most importantly her precious grandchildren and great grandchildren. Her family was always her number one priority.
