Her generous spirit and sense of humor will live on in the hearts of the countless people whose lives she brightened. Clare strongly believed life is about bringing more love into the world.

To honor Clare's giving nature, memorials to Wags and Whiskers Animal Rescue, the MN State Fair Foundation, or the Heifer Project.
