Claire was a life-long resident of Milton and faithful Parishioner of St Elizabeth’s Parish. To all those who knew her, Claire was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother and friend.

Claire was the expert co-pilot on her many road trips with her husband and family. She was proud to have made it to almost all of the continental states.
Claire loved being a grandmother. She attended many sporting events, recitals and other important milestones for each of her grandchildren.
