Claire Elise Kesler Reese

August 20, 1929September 4, 2018

“Claire Elise Kesler Reese, known affectionately as Mom, Mimi, and Sister, was born in Dallas in 1929. She’s now home.

Claire was a wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother as well as a daughter, sister, and aunt. What we will remember is her love for God, her love for family, her sweet, kind, generous soul, and her joy and laughter.

What Claire would like you to know is that she’s safe, happy, and reunited with her husband and loved ones, and that we all can choose to live life to its fullest, love unconditionally, forgive easily and generously, and find joy in every circumstance.

In addition to being a loving wife and mother, Claire enjoyed working as a secretary to one of the partners at John L Wortham. She exemplified integrity, honesty, loyalty, and gratitude in the workplace and also in her life.

Claire was very social, making friends wherever she went. She also enjoyed being part of her church, teaching Sunday school, painting with friends, and participating in the Stephen Ministry.

She was surrounded by all four of her children Brad Reese and wife Linda, Brian Reese and wife Lisa, Robin Roose and husband Ronnie, and Pam Best at the time of passing. Claire is also survived by 11 grandchildren and 10 great grandchildren.

She is loved.” ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
