  1. Claire was a dear close friend to my family for many years sharing beautiful fond memories with her and our extended families. She became Godmother to my late brother Phillip. All of my siblings still have her beautiful, timeless, hand knit Christmas stockings. God and us all were gifted by a kind and gentle soul.

  2. I worked with Claire at Intracorp many years ago. Claire was always very professional but also enjoyed a good laugh. She was a wonderful role model for so many of us. She helped me transplant a non-blooming Christmas cactus one year and to this day the plant continues to flower profusely every October. When I see the buds start to form, I always think of Claire. She was also a wonderful baker and introduced me to the Yankee Kitchen radio show. She always had her pencil ready to jot down recipes. Claire was a very classy, kind woman. I have such fond memories of her and I’m sure she will be deeply missed by her family. Susan Sim

  3. I knew Claire from the Woburn Senior Center when I was doing the Meals on Wheels Program there. Claire was a sweet always a smile for you woman. I am sure she will be gravely missed by her family. Very sorry for your loss.

    I will always remember our weekend trip to NYC during Chrustmas with Joan. Rest in peace Claire.
