Clara Strickland Marsh

Clara Strickland Marsh, 92, passed away after a brief illness on Octorber 6, 2012.

She was born in O’Brien, Suwannee County, Florida, to Frank and Una Strickland.

She is survived by two daughters, Glynn Marsh Alam and Dianne Marsh Clark; and one granddaughter, Jennifer Clark Williams (Dallas). Her husband of 70 years, U. B. Marsh, predeceased her in March of this year.

Mrs. Marsh grew up in a farming community in the Mayo area. Her extended family also lived in the area and many stories of childhood fun and hardships during the depression came from the time. She married U. B. in 1941. After WWII, they made their life in Tallahassee. Clara worked for many years for the Department of Motor Vehicles. Her primary profession, however, was homemaker, truly enjoying the qualities of a good home and good food.

Funeral services will be private. A gathering of friends and family will be held at the residence of Glynn Alam on Saturday, November 3, 2012 from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm.

Arrangements are under the direction of Culley's MeadowWood Funeral Home in Tallahassee,Florida.

Praying for your family. My mother was her first cousin and I remember her from the Wilder family reunion. We just lost my mom Beulah in August. I understand the difficulty of the loss of your mother. She was a very sweet lady.

I agree with Marvin that Aunt Clara was a treasure. Although she was not an aunt "by blood", she was always a true aunt and more to me. I will long remember my visits and talks with her over the past many years. Always kindhearted and good, always smiling, seldom complaining--that was "Aunt Clara". I'll always miss her.

What a treasure you had in Aunt Clara(your mom& grandmother). As an aunt she was the very best. I have so many memories of her when I was growing up and she lived on "THE HILL". I'll miss her.
