Born on January 22, 1928, in Plains, PA, Claire was the daughter of the late Frederick and Harriet (Williams) Hess. She grew up in Berwick, PA, graduated from Berwick High School and became a telephone operator for Bell Telephone. Through her employment, she met her future husband, Wayne C.

In addition to her husband, Claire was predeceased by a brother, Frederick Hess and two sisters, Ruth Hess and Kathryn (Hess) Williams.
Claire was a
dedicated wife, mother and grandmother and a true woman of faith. She will be
remembered for her steadfast love of the Lord, her unconditional love of and
devotion to family, her calm demeanor and her great sense of humor. She

pies), cross stitch and latch hook rug making with others. She and Wayne did
lots of traveling and camping, especially in Canada. Trips to The Holy Land
