Dear Family of Clemma,
I'm sorry I did not know about her passing in time to come to the funeral and meet you. She and my Mother, Sarah Lorraine Crider, were dining companions at Elmcroft for over 1 1/2 years, and she was always so gracious and pleasant toward Mother and everyone, and always looked so nice. I wish I had known more about her at that time. My Mother fractured her femur last September and moved to Greenewood Manor in October, so I had only seen Clemma a few times since then. I don't know if she and my Mother, who is also 89, remembered each other, but I certainly remember Clemma and appreciated so much her friendship and kindness she shared with my Mom. Blessings to all of her Family. It looks like she left a wonderful legacy.
Sincerely, Sharon Crider Raflik

Dear Family,
I was a student nurse at MVH from 1961- 1964. Your loved one, Clemma, was the friendly lady that sat behind the entrance desk to our Nursing Dorm on Apple St.
She always had a smile for us even while we were learning some of life's most difficult lessons AND trying to have an occassional date. Yes, That was when young women had curfews!
The MVH Nurses Alumni will meet for our annual banquet on May 5th.
I will share the news of " Mrs.Adams" passing. I am sure many pleasant memories will become lively conversation. Thanks for sharing her with us.
Sincerely, Nancy Ballinger Williams MVH Class of 1964
