We are very sad to read of Clarice's passing. We remember when Clarice & Jack lived in Idyllbrook close to where we lived in Northgate Park East. Remember your stories about them. We hope your many, many happy memories will help you and your family get through this most difficult time. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
With Deep Sympathy,

Our sincere condolences on loss of a great lady/mother/neighbor. She was always a great friend to both my parents, Kate and Bob Hinrichs, and was a wonderful neighbor to us growing up. Many fond memories of her as our "back door" neighbor. She will be missed.
