Claire was an inspiration to all of those who knew her. She endured ill health most of her life. Regardless the physical limitations she suffered, her spirit remained strong, healthy and joyful. She will be remembered for her generosity, strong convictions and loving nature. She spent endless hours on her "Needlepoint" Projects and was quick to gift these items to her friends. "Hockey Night in Canada" was her passion and she adored her loving dogs whom she called her "babies".
Claire always had time for others. She has left her mark and footprint in our hearts. Sleep peacefully our beloved Claire.
