Loved dearly by her great- grandchildren Michelle, Ronald Jr., Patrick, Ashley, Taylor, Braeden, Alex, Tara, Austin, Skyler, Brayden, Zachary, Noah, Zoe, Mia, Terri-Lynn, Randy, Kerry-Lynn, Michel, Alexandre, Danielle, Alec and Taylor. Everyone knew her as Memere Clara. She was a member of the Canadian Legion Branch 553, where she enjoyed playing cards and darts. She loved to dance and was an active bowler. During her lifetime, Clara and Eddy operated a convenience store in Chelmsford, then she worked at Bijouterie Vaillancourt, followed by the I.G.A. Again, she found herself side by side with Eddy at St-Joseph school. Later she was offered to work at Valley Fashions. She also aided her daughter Monique at the Vermillion Lake Marina for several years. But nothing pleased Clara more than having cared for most of her grand-children. Clara will be especially remembered for her quick wit, kindness and feistiness. She wished her children to love each other always and to remain in good physical condition so that they may enjoy life to the fullest. She hopes that her family will also remember the happy moments they shared, and not forget the love she gave them throughout their lives. The family would like to extend a great thanks to the Emergency staff at the General Hospital and the South 4th Palliative staff at Laurentian Hospital. A special heart-felt thank you to Père Tremblay from Dowling. At Mrs. Rheaume’s request, there will be no visitations or funeral service. A private burial will take place at a later date. Funeral arrangements entrusted to the CO-OPERATIVE FUNERAL HOME, Chelmsford.
