So glad we were able to know and have Clara as part of our church foe these past years. Her kind smile and sweet demeanor will be missed. Thankful that we got to meet her daughter's during this time, too. Our condolences to all the family.
All of us at Providence Christian Church were so blessed when Clara walked into our Sunday school class one Sunday morning. From that moment on we realized what a perfect lady she was. So caring, gracious and so very loving and proud of her family. She thanked me so many times for playing the organ for church and always with that sweet smile she had What a blessing she was to us and such an example of how to live your faith. We will miss her but give thanks for her part in our lives. God bless you and hold you in His arms Clara

Clara is my Great Aunt Nana. I remember her for her grace and beauty. Her house was always a welcoming home and her food was always so comforting. I admire her strength and love and am so grateful to have had her in my life.
I'm am saddened to lose a very special friend and will hold my love for her in my heart for the remainder of my life. I will rejoin her one sweet day when we will rejoice around the throne of God along with Jesus, the Angels and the loved ones who have passed before us. Praise God for His perfect plan for salvation, and for the family of God here on earth. May we all share our Christian love as long as we live. Always remember that They will know we are Christians by our love. Clara was the best example of giving love to everyone she met. Prayers and blessings for the family and all who mourn her passing.
