Known as GG to her great grandchildren, Clara was a loving grandmother, mother, and friend. She also leaves behind her lifelong friend Marva Howard who was also the confidant she did a lot of her traveling with in her prime. Clara was once quoted as saying “variety is the spice of life and my life has been so spicy I often had indigestion.” Clara was known to say what was on her mind whether you wanted to hear it or not. She will be missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing her.
