Clara liked to tell people that she gave me my first bath in a mixing bowl. I have so many memories of Clara and Henry and my friend Hank at Carpenter Street, at Ocean City, Md, at Redskins games. When I lived with her in Falls Church we'd fix dinner, watch Wheel of Fortune - her favorite show - and eat dinner - verrry slowly, often with Sam, her second husband. She was a generous and enthusiastic friend and a wonderful role model for modern younger women like me. You were truly my "second mom", Clara. I'll miss you.

I remember the lunch we had together with Clara, Rob and Dr Gottfried. Clara was so charming and interested in education and our mission at CSM. We are so grateful for her generosity and support of our CSM students. Your legacy will live on. God Bless you Clara, May you Rest In Peace in the arms of our loving Lord. 💕🙏
