She worked tirelessly with Robert as he volunteered at the Fourth of July celebration, helping to keep the books and balance ledgers by hand.

Clara loved to golf, and often vacationed with her husband over the Thanksgiving weekend in South Carolina. She scored a hole in one, and played for several years in a ladies’ league at Hidden Hills.
