Clara was a loving wife and mother with a youthful, loving spirit that kept the family together. Her family was her joy. Raising her children, grandchildren, nieces, and nephews will always be her pride and joy. She enjoyed gardening, her beautiful flowers, the beauty of nature, and collecting dolls. She embraced memories of events, trips, visits, and most of all her collection of photos of each individual to keep them as close as possible. Each momento she kept, no matter how small, she was able to describe who, where, when, and what it reminded her of. Her love will always be in our hearts.
