Clara was full of life and energy in her 88 years, many referenced her as a “spitfire” because she was always on the go. She always took the stairs no matter what. She was so talented and humble, her passion for painting and creating art brought her so much joy. You could always find her dancing any chance she got! We hope to honor her vivacious life with a proper celebration of life.
Services will be held at 2 p.m. Friday, February 15, 2019 at Calvary Catholic Cemetery in Clearwater with the Rev. Mary Moore officiating.
David C. Gross Funeral Homes, Central Avenue Chapel in St. Petersburg is serving the family.
