Biography

Claire Mannino was an expressive, optimistic, and uninhibited individual, and to everyone around her, she seemed to be eternally happy, and she willingly shared that joy with anyone whose life she touched. Claire really mastered the art of living and had great fun in doing so.

Claire was born on September 18, 1925 in Brooklyn in New York City to Louis and Elizabeth DeMichele. Claire was raised at 58th Street in Brooklyn, New York with her 11 siblings. Even as a child, Claire had the ability to lift the spirits of all those around her. She was raised to be warm, caring, and friendly. She couldn’t help but capture everyone’s attention. She managed to lighten the mood wherever she was, and seemed to have a knack for bringing compromise and erasing tense situations around the house. Due to a generous dose of common sense, Claire managed to find a satisfying solution to basic problems.

All of Claire's playful good humor carried over into her childhood. She was possessed with an outgoing personality and a mellowed enthusiasm for life, and was ever the hard worker. She worked as a babysitter, cleaned other's homes, and worked at A & P Market as a meat packer.

The gift of being emotionally expressive and outwardly affectionate made Claire very easy to approach. She married Vito Dante Mannino and together they created a loving home for their family. She was always sensitive to other people’s feelings, and that was especially true in marriage. Claire was blessed with two children, Ronald and Angela. They were also blessed with four grandchildren, Delia, John, Anthony, and Clarice. Claire had the ability to focus her attention on the present moment. If she was spending time with the kids, that’s where all of her attention was directed.

At work, Claire was an adaptable realist, using her common sense and trusting her experiences and impulses to uncover the correct answer. She was employed as an inspector in the clothing industry, but was first and foremost a loving mother and wife.

Claire enjoyed her leisure time by taking part in various hobbies. She liked going out to eat and going to casinos, and she also enjoyed traveling with her husband. Claire loved meeting with friends to play cards and have dinners - Mom loved to cook and entertain! Claire was content to enjoy her hobbies alone but was also willing to share her interests with others.

Vested with a deep concern for spiritual development, Claire recognized that her faith was important to her throughout her life. She was a member of the Catholic Church. During that time, she attended mass, prayed, and recited 7 rosaries a night. She loved the Blessed Mother Mary and Jesus.

Claire passed away on September 3, 2019 at home in Las Vegas, Nevada. She is survived by her son, Ron; daughter, Angela; grandchildren, Delia, John, Anthony, and Clarice; great grandchildren, Brooklyn, Joseph, and Isabella; and great-great granddaughter, Giovanna. Services were held at Palm Southwest Mortuary.

Claire brought joy to all of those around her. She never had a mean bone in her body. She loved to have a good time and was an eternal optimist, always looking on the bright side of things. She loved to share her energy, wit, and her zest for all of her activities with her friends and family. Claire Mannino lived life to its fullest and made everyone around her happier just for knowing her. She will be remembered with a smile.
