Condolences & Memories (2 entries)

  • Clara was one of those rare individuals who did not speak much but she did much. The strong and quiet thread that wound through her life and wove others into the fabric of her being was a deep generosity supported by actions. Actions that were swift at times to rescue a family member. She did not wait for others to respond: she moved. May you rest in peace, dear Clara. May your family be surrounded by the love and peace of our Creator in this time of heartbreak. - Posted by: Frances Everett (sister-in-law) on: Apr 15, 2023
