She loved her flowers and gardening, taking walks and the simplistic beauty of nature. Clara was known for her great cooking, especially her famous delicious pies. She found enjoyment in giving them away to her family and friends. Clara will be dearly missed by her family and they will forever remember and cherish her memory.
