I remember Clarice for her funny sense of humor at Marymount. And I was grateful for our communication during her treatment. She was hopeful, grateful and strong. And had a golden heart! My heart and prayers to her family and friends.

My dear friend Clarice,
Words cannot describe the void that you leave in so many hearts. A devoted friend to all of us at HNOJ, grandmother, mother, sister, and child of God, you carried all these roles and so many others with dignity, honesty, and grace. Even when you faced the greatest challenges of your life, you were a constant presence in our own lives and showed the strength of heart and spirit that you received from the Grace of God.
Rest In Peace my friend, knowing that your legacy on earth is a lasting one.
Until we meet again,
Your sister in Christ,

Clarice was a beautiful soul with so much love and devotion to and for God, Holy Name of Jesus Church and its parishioners. She was highly regarded and admired by all. A great mentor and friend, I had the privilege to serve on the same committee she orchestrated with such dedication and passion.
Clarice carried her cross, trusting completely in the will of God.
She is now safely home in Mother Mary’s care. No more suffering and pain, reaping all the rewards of her Earthly labors; praising and glorifying our Father in Heaven with all His angels and Saints. I know she’s looking down upon us lovingly.
We love you Clarice ❤️ and will miss you.
We will never forget you and your many selfless contributions. You were an inspiration, impacting so many lives, allowing your light to shine by your example, and through your deep faith.
You will always be in the hearts and minds of those who love you and will continue to pray for you.
Our thoughts, prayers, and condolences go out
to your family.
