Claire operated a home daycare for over 35 years where she loved, cared for and impacted so many children and their families, including her own three granddaughters. She was a Girl Scout Leader and enjoyed years of family camping at Ferndale Acres campground and loved following her children & grandchildren to cheer them at their high school and college sports events. She loved to travel and most recently spent winters in Florida in Port St Lucie with friends. She loved to shop at yard sales and bring home gifts for everyone she thought of. She enjoyed a whiskey sour, as long as it was sweet enough and always had a quick quip ready and always ready to share her views and opinions with anyone.
