    My prayers are with Theresa, Paul, Denise, and the rest of Aunt Clare’s family. Her life is an inspiration. I remember her faithfulness and energy. Gentle, strong, and with a deep well of compassion. She and Theresa helped me to feel very much at home welcome at St. Patrick’s when I moved to Cleveland in 2003. I do and will continue to miss her.

    Clare and Mike have been friends of countless women and men at St. Patrick’s Parish over many years. Her gentle warmth will be greatly missed. Together with Mike, they will watch over us, as we keep her beloved children and grandchildren in our prayers.

    To Clare Ann’s family,
    My deepest condolence to you. I knew Clare Ann during the 60’s and 70’s and always admired her positive cheerful attitude. She was a breath of sunshine with that wide warm smile.
    You are lucky to have had her.
    Sincerely, Nancy and Dieter Huth

    To Clare’s Family,
    Clare was my English teacher at St. Stephen High School in the 1950’s. She was one of my favorite and one of the best teachers I ever had. She was strict and had a wonderful sense of humor. We learned our grammar. She gave me a lifelong love for Shakespeare. When I became a teacher, I tried to model myself on her. Whenever our class, the Class of 1959, got together for reunions, we would remember her fondly. I am so sorry for your loss.
