I remember Clara, as a kid growing up in Midway ( Vinton) Virginia. I recall being at her house and how well I was treated each and every time. She was one of the many great Moms to a lot of us kids growing up back then. Fond memories will not disappear or disappoint!! Rest In Peace Clara. A life well lived and a job well done.

Miss Clara may you Rest in Eternal Peace. I remember when I was a child that you fed me food and "spirit". I didn't have a mother to care for me, but you were a wonderful seragote. You will missed. Karen thank you for letting us who don't live close your mother's life. I'm sure she will be missed. 🙏🙏

I have always believed that angels walk among us and Clara was one of those angels. Such a kind and caring lady, who touched so many people in her life. Clara was loved by everyone who knew her and will remain in our hearts.
