OBITUARY

Clara E. Ehrlich

September 5, 1951February 10, 2020

Clara Etta (Robinson) Ehrlich, age 68, of Hamilton, Ohio passed away peacefully on Monday, February 10, 2020 surrounded by her family.

She was born to the late Hughie and Edith Robinson September 5, 1951 in Corbin, Kentucky. She was predeceased by her four sisters: Sarah Pennington, Shirley Robinson, Athlene Bumgardner, and Linda Walden, and two brothers, Gilbert Robinson and Jerry Robinson.

Clara will be deeply missed by her surviving two children, Michele (Michael) Ruter and Dennis (Sherri) McKeen; four grandchildren, Lindsay (Casey) Gutknecht, Dylan Ruter, Kristin McKeen and Emma McKeen; three great-grandchildren, Conner, Sydnee, and Madisyn Gutknecht; and sister, Lorene (Donny) Bowlin.

Family was the center of Clara’s life. She treasured the time she spent with her siblings, nieces and nephews, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Having her home filled with laughter and food was her perfection. She was so proud of her children and grandchildren’s accomplishments and cherished the opportunity to support them.

Clara never met a stranger and showed kindness to everyone around her. She still met regularly with her friends from Ford Motor Company where she retired after more than 30 years of service. She enjoyed spending the winters in Florida where she not only enjoyed the warmer weather but also time with friends and was always willing to serve those in need.

Viewing ceremony will be held on Monday, February 17, 2020 from 10am until 12pm at Rose Hill Funeral Home, with funeral service to follow. The burial will follow at the Rose Hill Burial Park. Please consider a donation to American Cancer Society in lieu of sending flowers.

Clara- an amazing lady & a remarkable friend. She had a beautiful smile, sparkling blue eyes and a big, generous, loving heart. She was a hard worker and gave so much to so many - always ready to help others. We were very blessed to have her for a friend. Her faith in God and love for her family helped her through life's hard times. She has always been so very grateful for her families love & support. God bless you all. We miss & love Clara.

From the day you entered our family, you were loved. We shared good times, some not so good and many fun times. Who else would have gone with me to a store in a blizzard, then sat laughing when nobody was there but us!!
We fulfilled the promise I made to you. You'll always be in our hearts and always remembered.
I hope everyone remembers you the way our family did.
Love you, Glenda

My dearest Clara,
You were so valuable in my youth, I loved your energy and unwavering love. You never said anything to me negative you always stayed on the positive side. My life is full, however if you were not there for me and with me in the beginning, I would not be the person I am w/ my outlook for those who aren’t like minded. God was your guide and I hoped he could guide me as well.
You shared my oldest son’s birthday, you were the first person to watch him so I could go back to work. That my loving Aunt was the absolute best memory of you I have. I will ,and always do, remember those days like yesterday.
As I grew up and we both had different lives and lifestyles, the love I had for you never wavered.
As a divorced mother of 3 in my 30’s we connected and randomly stayed in touch.
In my late 40’s we were within 4 miles of each other in another state...
We reconnected as Aunt & Niece as well as friends .
I never thought I’d have any more special memories with you but boy was I wrong!
Margaritas, moscato and home decorating... no need to say more.

You my beloved Aunt, live forever in my heart and mind , you’re never forgotten & never more loved
Your, Niece & Friend
Sandy

Rest In Peace & let the sunshine warm your soul .

Dumplings, my favorite dish at any holiday, Aunt Clara’s dumplings. And that laugh, contagious, infectious!
My memories aren’t as clear as they once were but Clara has always been a happy one. She was loving & funny but when I did something stupid she cared about me enough to set me straight, loudly.
My love & hopes that everyone left behind is ok. I have no doubt that she’s still watching out for all of you. She’s with the family she’s missed & will be missing you too. Love you Aunt Clara
