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.
