Clara E. Shevil, 70

 

OBIT ShevillClara E. Shevil, 70, passed away on Oct. 22, at the C. R. Wood Cancer Treatment Center surrounded by her “sweethearts”, which included her children, grandchildren, brother, nieces, nephews and friends.

Born Nov. 17, 1942, in Poestenkill, N.Y., she was the daughter of the late John and Mary (Crandall) Lockwood. Besides her parents she was predeceased by her brother, Johnny Lockwood, and sisters Anna May Pollock and Esther Swan. She is survived by her brother Bernice Wayne Moffitt of Granville; her three children, Rose Cary and her husband Herb of Granville, Cathenia Kramer of Fort Edward and William Shevil of Granville, along with her grandchildren, Miranda Snyder and husband Clinton, Nicolas Shevil, Thomas Martelle, Dustin, Bryan, Nathan and Taniqua Shevil as well as her great grandchildren, Tyler and Isaac.

Clara worked for numerous employers over the years. She worked at Mallinckrodt in Argyle and she was a cashier at a number of local stores including the Rite Aid, Family Dollar and Sheldon’s Market in West Pawlet, Vt. She also worked as a C.N.A. at Indian River Nursing Home. The jobs she enjoyed the most were those that served the public. She loved people and liked to see them smile.

After her retirement Clara spent a good deal of her time in service to her God Jehovah. She enjoyed sharing her faith and hope for the future with others. It was that same faith that sustained her during her difficult illness. Many who came in contact with her remarked on how encouraging she was to them despite her own circumstances. She was always a caring, compassionate person who made herself available to help others in whatever way she could.

Sincere thanks to Dr. Darci Gaiotte Grubbs, her nurse Chicky Burelli and all the wonderful nurses and nurses aides on T2. Their professionalism and compassion are remarkable and truly appreciated.

Friends and family are invited to attend a Memorial talk to be given at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses on Route 22 in Granville at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 9th.

Arrangements were entrusted to the Robert M King Funeral Home, 23 Church St, Granville, N.Y.
