My Aunt Clara was always a bright light in this dim and sometimes dark world. For those of us lucky enough to have her in our lives were truly blessed. There are so many fond memories of growing up with her daughters,, Delena and Norisa. We spent most every summer either in Francis at Grannie Harrison’s or a trip to Wichita was in order. It was always exciting for me to come to visit Clara and my cousins in the big city of Wichita. Clara always had activities planned for us to do while we were there like going to Cowtown, the Zoo and amusement park. It was a big deal for a little girl like me from a town of 400 people! She always treated everyone with love and kindness. I will her calls, texts and mostly her. She always signed off with hugs and love which I have borrowed from her for future usage. Until we meet again, I will miss her terribly but I know she is with my Daddy, my Grannie and so many loved ones who have gone before her and she is having a big time catching up!

Clara (Sissie to me), was a lifelong friend who I loved so very much. I have wonderful memories of the times we spent together. She was my maid of honor at my wedding in 1952. We stayed in touch down through the years. I treasure our times together. Will miss you so much, my precious Sissie!

Clara Stuart was my mother, my best friend, and my partner for anything I suggest we do.
Mom started life in Francis Oklahoma and lived with her family in a modest rock home on what was named Harrison Hill by the town. Her oldest sister died of pneumonia before she was born at the age of three. She had three other brothers with one being three years older than her and two who were eight and nine years younger than her. Her parents worked hard to raise children during the years of the depression. Mom described her father being away working frequently and she helped watch and take care of her younger brothers. She also talked about being happy and attending church regularly. My mom was a true example of a believer in God our savior.
She graduated High School and did attend some college classes but was unable to complete a degree due to the need to start working and provide for herself . Mom came to Wichita where her father was working and found a job at Boeing Aircraft company. She met my father at Boeing where he was employed at the time. Dad had come to Wichita from northeast Oklahoma to find employment.
My parents married and purchased the house on Millwood where she was still living when she passed away. They had two children together and were blessed to celebrate 40 years together before dad passed away.
When my mom delivered my older sister my dad requested mom stay at home with both of us until we were older. Her next job was down the street at a small appliance store where she did some secretary work. Then she worked at Friends University in the mailroom helping to print and get mass flyers ready to be mailed. She moved to her next job at PizzaHut incorporation working in their mailroom. Mom later took a job at SRS (State Rehabilitation Services) working in payroll department. She retired from there at the age of 62 to spend more time with her husband. My dad passed away in 1998 and my mother has stayed single since.
My mother is known for being a social butterfly who talks to everyone she meets. She attended monthly SRS retirement luncheons and was an active member of the Red Hat Society. She loved her family and enjoyed the time she spent with everyone.
Mom loved birds, nature and her garden. She enjoyed coming to my house in Guthrie Oklahoma and helped to feed horses, chickens and gathering eggs. Her many hobbies included sewing, quilting, ceramics, adult coloring, and was a frequent reader of all types of books. She mastered the skills of using a smart phone in her eighties and would text family and friends frequently. Mom was a beautiful person inside and out and she will be missed by all of us.

She certainly was a beautiful person! So kind and thoughtful. Had a heart as big as the universe! Oh, how she will be missed! She was so proud of her daughters, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Her family was all important to her and rightfully so.
