Claire loved the southern Utah mountains. She would spend as much time there as possible. She loved fishing in the cold mountain streams and creeks, and camping and riding 4-wheelers. She loved her children and supported them in their pursuits. She was known as the neighborhood mom, making sandwiches for Nick and David’s friends. She had a wonderful sense of humor and was joking to her last days. She was a fun person and young at heart, and fondly remembered the “old days”.
