Clara Mae and Harry were high school sweethearts. They moved to Springville when Harry was ill in order to be close to his grandchildren - he died a year later, 43 years ago. It was good that Clara Mae was here. Springville was a town full of widows. Clara Mae and her friends went on trips, out to eat and to special events. She was active in the First United Methodist Church in Springville as well as the Bertrand-Chaffee Women's Association. She worked in the gift shop at the hospital and volunteered for Meals on Wheels.
She loved spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
If you met Clara Mae, you would of remembered her. She was one-of-a-kind. Now she's in Heaven and Heaven will never be the same.
There will be no calling hours. A Funeral Service will be held on Friday, July 12, 2019 at the First United Methodist Church in Springville at 10 AM where Rev. Matthew French will officiate. Interment will be held in Maplewood Cemetery, Springville.
