“Grandma up the Farm” as myself, Bree and your Great Grandkids all called you.

You truly were one of a kind,

106 (almost 107) is an amazing achievement and one that rarely happens.

You were a strong-willed, independent lady and an inspiration to many.

Your hospitality for those you loved, your delicious cooking and witty comments will be so sadly missed.

You are now at rest with the angels and shining down ever so bright.

Those we love don’t go away; they walk beside us every day.

Until we meet again Grandma, rest in peace.

Mark, Bree, Jordan, Scarlett, Spencer, Lincoln and Hudson


Grandma, a remarkable lady and a much loved “Grandma up the Farm

Now at rest after a remarkable 106 years. You will be fondly remembered and missed always. 

A special person, a special face, a special someone we cannot replace.

Love Ross, Katrina and Ethan

    I am so thankful to Peter Diss who arranged for us to meet Clare in her home for morning tea a few years ago. Clare was so lovely & told us lots of
    family info, which was so interesting. Love & prayers to Clare’s family. I am sorry we couldn’t make it to the thanksgiving service for Clare.
