I remember Clarajohn as a fun-loving, delightful person. She was a few years behind me at Georgetown Visitation but I will never forget her gentle smile and stories of life in Indiana. Clarajohn will have a special place in my prayers as she is laid to rest.

Blessings to her husband, daughter, and grandchildren who will miss her cheerful presence.
