Clara’s family (her people) were very important to her. She always looked forward to big family gatherings. Clara was a caretaker by nature. She took care of her husband, then her daughters, and then her big sister until each passed. 43 years ago Clara was a founding member of Mission Baptist, Cincinnati. She was very active in their Ladies Group. Clara was faithful until her body wouldn’t allow her to attend. She then started watching their services online.

If you knew Clara you loved her. She will be terribly missed.
