Clara was a Dear Friend and She will be sadly missed by all of us.

To the family of Clara,

I will remember Clara at Mass. She was a great lady! I have known her for the past sixty years +.

She was a good friend of my aunt, Elnor Gantzer of Bridgeport. They both attended St. Joseph Academy.

Clara and John would come for dinner and to visit at Elnor’s for many years! I usually had dinner with them at this time. Clara had a remarkable memory. She could remember people and events and recall these. My aunt died three years ago. It’s been awhile since I last visited Clara at Peterson’s.

There is no doubt that she was ready and waiting for the Lord to call her home. She was a woman of faith. May God give her rest and peace.

Msgr. George R. Coyne – St. Joseph Church – Tiltonsville, OH.
