Clare... Very endearing, generous, loving, and someone who gave comfort bringing forth the body and blood of Christ. " The Body of Christ, Dear.", she would say, which would often, if not every time bring a smile to my face and remind me of Christ's Love. Love comes to mind when I think of her - we will truly miss her dearly...

I remember Clare and her mother as I used to cut their lawn during my teen years. They always made sure I had plenty of water to drink on those hot summer days. their kindness and support of my budding music interest (guitar) was appreciated. Clare’s mother actually helped me get my first electric guitar with her Montgomery Wards work discount. Fond memories.

Paul and I will miss chatting on the phone with Aunt Clare. She was always entertaining-lots of stories about growing up! We were fortunate to have visited her in November. She was receiving excellent care. Deborah and Andy were her angels and we were blessed to have gotten to meet them-such true friends!!

I was so saddened to hear of cousin Clare's passing. I so loved the many phone conversations we enjoyed over many years. She was an amazing woman, caring, loving and kind. I trust she is in the loving care of our Lord, and how blessed to be so on this Easter Sunday! God love you, Clare, as we did.

My dear neighbor, Clare Ryan - one of the funniest people I've ever met. A great storyteller with a command of wit and whimsy. Kind, considerate, loyal and devout. I will miss her. Gail Keller
