Clara F. Ort, age 99, passed away on Wednesday, Nov. 20, at Pleasant Valley Infirmary in Argyle, following a long illness.

Claire was born on Aug. 28, 1914 in Middletown, Vt. the daughter of Bert and Elizabeth Porter.

Claire was a very hard worker and wonderful mother. She loved people. She worked throughout the years as a store clerk and waitress. Both professions that allowed her the opportunity to meet and talk with people.

To her family, and especially her son, she was a confidant and advisor over the years. She was always willing to help people. Claire would give with all her heart to anyone who sought her advice. Be it with her wisdom or financially. She loved going for car rides. She didn’t care about the destination, it was about the journey. She may have been short in stature, but never doubted how powerful she was.
