Claire was born and raised in Wimberley, Texas. Her love for animals and their care, prompted her to pursue further education and become a Veterinarian Assistant. Her compassion for others inspired her to volunteer in organizations such as the Blessings Box.
Claire was all about family. She was a wonderful Mother, her children always came first. She was a fun and loving grandmother and great grandmother. She was a “Kid Magnet”. Wherever you found children and animals, you found Mem and cookies. She was famous for her “Pink Cookies”. She loved God, her family and the United States of America.
