Clara and her husband resided in Barrington and Cary, IL. She worked as a secretary in her husband's plumbing business. Together they traveled around the United States in their RV and ultimately retired to Florida, where Clara enjoyed most of her retirement years. Time spent with her grandchildren and traveling with family and friends were favorite pastimes, as well as dancing whenever she heard a good tune.
