I have known Clara since the mid 1970's when her friend Joyce introduced us. We have had many hours together and I have heard many stories; especially those interesting stories of her travels. Some good some bad like when the cobblestone street got her in I believe it was Spain and down she went!! I wanted to but was unable to attend her grave side service since I had a fall of my own. But she was a person that will long be remembered by me.
My sympathy goes out to all her family especially her son Kelly.

My son told me about Clara Martin Payne passing away. She was a customer at his Walgreen's store and he said that she was such a nice person. He was so sad by the news. We wanted to offer our condolences at the loss of your sweet family member. You are all in our prayers. I know that she touched many lives in her 94 years of life and glad that my son got to know her. She will be remembered by us. Prayers for all during this day (April 17, 2018) as you celebrate her life. Sincerely, Katie Jackson
