Clarise spent most of her life as a homemaker. She was a former Sunday School teacher for the Grace United Methodist Church, of Nassau, NY.

She loved her sweets, especially candy and ice cream not to mention the occasional rum and cokes. Clarise has missed all those that went before her, especially her husband and siblings, whom she loved with her whole heart.
